    I voted for Stein.
    Yeah, Ben Stein could be impressive.

    I don't get the whole "false right-left divide"/"lesser of two evils" disdain. Our system seems to do an excellent job of ending up somewhere in the middle. I like how we give credit to all sides of each argument.. all except the extreme nonsense anyway.

    We're never going to overthrow the two leading parties, and shouldn't anyway. If you don't think your vote matters then vote the minority party. I'm scratching pure democrat in Utah out of principle.

    I find it quite humorous that you think Bush Sr. would have lead us to a better outcome than Clinton. I maintain that it didn't matter who won that election. Neither person was right for the job and neither was so much worse than the other that making sure they didn't win was imperative.
    I don't think I ever said Bush Sr. would have been better, just that the popularity of Perot perhaps cost him the election. I agree that neither option was desirable (hence the popularity of Perot)

    Obviously Ross Perot didn't win - he didn't really even have a shot but it allowed Clinton to win because a good majority of those votes that went to Perot probably would have gone to Bush Sr.
    If the people voting for Perot woould have been willing to vote for HW, they would have voted for HW. Significant third parties are have always been bad sign for the incumbent since the Civil War.
