I won't start digging over the 3rd parties until a few months before the election, unless any of them get national attention. I almost always vote 3rd party.

The first few days after the British general election were great! The whole voting thing really worked for me. I voted for no-one, and we got no-one!

I do thin it is unfortunate that the media and all the polls ignore third parties, especially when the two major parties have many of the same ideologies.

It was the last British elections that gave some merit to the two party system in my view. I hate parties anyway.

Well Geoerge Washington opposed parties, I do thin he had a point, we should loo at issues rather than party. It would force people to vote more intellectually.

I don't like parties, but I can't see why our last election reinforced that view. The coalition government we have ostensibly no worse than if any of the parties had won outright (nearly all of our parties function in pretty much the same way, even if the stuff they shout about is different)
