5. Why should I care how you react?
I don't care. The ones who need to "react" or worry about my vote are the ones who have to earn it. So far, they haven't done much in the way of earning it.

Worry about your own vote.

10. you should open the door for me
and say "thanks for being part of our democracy"

well, that's me or anyone else who may be voting for some no-chance candidate. I've never bought into the idea that some pollster somewhere can tell who these 3rd party voters would have voted for if their person wasn't on the ballot. I think in most cases they're voting because that person lit a fire somehow. If their person wasn't on the ballot they'd be home shelling peas and looking through the unemployment section.

11. A lot of people are asking me why they should care how I react, to which I respond
Edited on Wed Aug-11-10 09:36 PM by LoZoccolo
why are you telling me about it?

In b4 "I'm just letting you know".

Remember: every little thing the reflex does, leaves an answer with a question mark.

14. Because they wish to tell you, the question was on how you should react, not whether people should
give you the dignity of responding to the question.

If it were, I would have gladly stood mute.

15. Who's voting third party?
I'm not. But I damned well will keep on going after useless corporate whores in primaries. In general elections, getting 30% of my agenda beats 0%.

17. IF I was voting 3rd party (and I am not and never have) why would I care how YOU react?
What I mean is Unrec for another meaningless, flypaper post.

21. With amazement I suppose. I've never voted third party.
Edited on Wed Aug-11-10 10:18 PM by mmonk
And why isn't this considered flame bait? You have Gibbs as your avatar and ask us how you should feel about us voting third party.
