Dissatisfied Voters

The title "Zogby Poll: 48% of Voters Dissatisfied With Candidates" I think says it all. I know that I am not satisfied with any of the candidates still running with the exception of Ron Paul who at this point does not have a chance to win the Republican nomination. Now imagine if instead of voting for the lesser of two evils come election time, those people actually voted for a 3rd party candidate. Even if they didn't win, it would certainly send a message that the country is not happy with the direction the company is headed.

When people tell me that a vote for candidate X is a vote for the lesser of two evils I always tell them that a vote for the lesser of two evils is still a vote for evil. I then ask, "Who would you vote for Hitler or Stalin?" Personally I'd vote for other. The democrats want to take away my guns and redistribute my money while the new republicans want to take away my liberty. I think this year is an excellent year to not vote for Fascism or Communism and instead vote for other!
