Would voting independent be a wasted vote? I mean, no one besides a republican or democrat even stands a chance, though I wish that weren't true. I'm sick and tired of being lied to, all the political drama, the way these elections divide our country rather than unite it, etc. This is caused by both sides, and I'm tired of it! I wish the green party would grow to the point where it overtakes both the republicans and the democrats so we can FINALLY be one country again! This whole two party system sucks!Answer Question

lifeasinoit lifea... Usually, the liberatarians are more on the conservative side, so just enough votes that are given to a party that we know will not win, is dividing the conservative vote. The liberal votes are not usually divided which means they would likely win. My opinion is that if you want to really make a third party change, do it LOOOONG before an election. Recruit and smather their name everywhere in order to let them be seen as a viable option. Otherwise, the Republican support is divided. What a shame. just my opinion, which literally means nothing.
Good answer lifeasinoit!!

Voting independent is absolutely NOT a wasted vote. If you want the Green Party to grow to the point where they stand a chance then voting for them is the way to do it. A small percentage of votes can secure ballot access, political funding, and help them gain access to debates in the next election. Here is a post I wrote on the topic. http://www.cafemom.com/journals/read/1269933/Voting_3rd_party_is_not_a_wasted_vote
There are many others. Search the journal post by using the keyword "third party" to find them.
