Why is everybody focus in only on two parties? Im Just asking since I see alot of experience candidates but know one has ever heard of them, why is it? Is ignorance, popularity, how much noise one makes, or do they know the right people. Some of these third party candidates do seem to want real change. can any body answer sincerely.

I just haven't seen a third party candidate I liked since Ross Perot in the 90's. I look into EVERY candidate in every election. The third party people this year are all extremists and I have serious issues with each and every one of them. Baldwin, Barr, Nader, and McKinney. This was a year that I seriously considered voting third party, but they let me down. Why can't there just be a moderate third party?

They let me down by basically being extremists. You have to be willing to appeal to the majority of Americans to get elected. Appealing to a small select group as the current third party candidates do, will never get you elected. You've got people like Chuck Baldwin who is against women in the military and people like Cynthia McKinney who actively wants to pass legislation to release information about Tupac Shakur. Yeah, I really want taxpayer dollars wasted on that. Bob Barr and Ralph Nader aren't quite as bad, but they are still extreme and close-minded when I want a president willing to understand both sides of any given issue.
