I wonder if there is any way to get the Libertarians, or other "third"
parties, seriously campaign? Yes, I know, they need money which comes
from donors exposed to the party by media attracted by the party
spending money...but how can we get this cycle to *start*, with
sufficient momentum that there would be a significant chance of a
non-Democrat and non-Republican President of the U.S. next year? It
seems like the responsibility lies with these "third" parties to start
getting the word out...for instance, challenging the Dem/Rep candidates
to debates *and making a major media flurry - major enough to get
noticed by a significant percent of the American public - out of their
lack of response*.
