I really hope a quality third party can develop. Democrats deserve to be crushed in the next election, and I hope they do, but I don't Republicans to win elections either. One can hope for third party who has viable ideas.

LOVE the expressions and stances of Downey and Martin in this photo. "Two pair of matching bookends, different as night and day..." Yeah, with the Libertarians trying to get into the Independence Party I don't think you're gonna find much middle ground.

The worst thing to happen to the IP's allure was Ventura's victory. Hopefully they'll find a way to erase that embarrasing little chapter of history from the minds of voters and become a viable option in the future. Unfortunatly Jesee keeps finding ways to come up in the news and remind us what can happen.

I could really use a compassionate but sensible party to eliminate waste, but not not on the backs of the poor and middle class.

We keep electing the same people and partys and expect a different outcome.

The IP could actually do it, but not if they remain the "good-government" wing of the DFL.

The IP has fielded some good candidates whom I supported, but I'll stick with Franken if the senate hopeful is a Ron Paul follower.
