142. Not me! I only voted for Obama because the alternative was totally unacceptable.
I learned my lesson of voting for third party here in the US back in 1980. I voted for Anderson, because Carter was unpopular, and Reagan was unacceptable. What did we get?
Since then I have never voted for a third party. They cannot win here in the US. Not the way that the current system is owned by the corporations.
Perhaps if there was a mass upheaval, as there is in #OWS, then, maybe I could be convinced. I believe that the 99% have the right idea, as they plan to run candidates in each congressional, and senatorial district, starting next year. We shall see if this takes off the ground or not.
If not, I'll vote for Obama, because NO RepubliCON will ever, in my life get my vote. Not after Reagan killed my brother!
