The Bitter Presidential Election
I've been involved in this health care debate for the last 30 years. I am dismayed that Republicans nominated a candidate whose health care plan is all but identical to Obama's.
PPACA (ObamaCare) is a network of state run health exchanges regulated by the Federal Government. Romney's plan is a network of health exchanges run and regulated by the state, with the Federal government providing coordinating support.
Both sides of the shrill debate are pushing the same policy. So, I thought I would research some of the third party candidates.
The 2012 presidential election will be one of the most widely analyzed election votes in history. A large third party vote would have a tremendous impact on the platforms of both the Republican and Democratic Party.
If the third party vote is so large that neither party has a clear majority and mandate, the third party vote will force both parties to reconsider their platforms. I beg everyone who is disgusted with politics and thinking of sitting the election out, to vote for the third party that best suits their style (split the vote).
The Constitution Party
The Constitution Party is a group that seeks to be more conservative than the Republicans. Their candidate is a person named Virgil Goode. The Constitution Party is on the ballot in 17 states this election. Virgil's YouTube Channel had three videos. This interview looks like the most interesting.
Being only 17 ballots means that Goode can't possibly win. Voting for the Constitution Party candidate says you want candidates who are more "conservative" than Romney.
