Response to Time for change (Original post)

Thu Apr 21, 2016, 04:29 PM

16. I thank you for that, and feel much the same way until the last where you mentioned your solution.

See, I agree with you with almost everything that you have said, it is just that I can't go that far, as I would not suggest Senator Sanders running as a 3rd party candidate.

If he does so, I can't vote for him. Unless he polls higher than both the Democratic and Republican candidate, I do not think I could consider him.

I just don't see having a 3rd Party at this time as viable.

I have been a proud unaffiliated voter my whole life except since January. I changed to a Democrat so that I can participate in this primary. I have never done that for any candidate before, and will change back to unaffiliated as soon as the primaries in my state is over.

I have always voted for the lesser of two evils as I have never had a choice, in essence, I am an Independent Democratic voter by proxy. I support the candidates that are running, but after John Kerry, my interest has waned till now.

I still don't see myself ever voting for a 3rd party... However, I have to admit, I am so tempted right now, even though at the beginning of the primaries I would have been happy with any of the 3 Democratic candidates. I can't say that any more.
