Americans will soon have their choice for the 2012 presidential race: Mitt Romney versus Barack Obama. But one group, Americans Elect, is determined to give voters a third choice for president.

I have to say, from the little I can gather here, it's just yet more of the same.

To paraphrase British satirist Jonathan Miller, from all of 50 years ago: "Americans have the Republican Party, which is like our Conservative Party, and the Democratic Party, which is like our Conservative Party, and Americans Elect, which is like our Conservative Party."

How about some real choice for once?

I think there are those on both the GOP and Progressive side who'd like a 'strong' 3rd candidate to vote there time to get enough support and funding for one to actually have a serious chance of winning by the election ? I would like for that to be the case. However, does another have a chance to get both of those things in place enough to make it a really close race between three this time ?..or... WIll a 'third ' just be a Karl Rove/GOP 'spoiler dream come true' this election. How can 'a third' make to close to the leader time to make it reality ?

If it takes corporate money to fund whoever I too feel they would turn out to be as Roger suggest...more of the same. I am not under the belief,looking at the 'whole pie' , that just changing presidents, whoever it might be next... will solve many,if any, of our most serious problems without a lot of other changes being made before that would/could happen. Corporate funding = more of the my thinking..

...I/m really hoping I'm missing something about this and the chances of a thrid being more than just an alternative to vote, regardless of their being a very high chance of their winning. Can enough support be found to over come corporate camgaign funding ?

Jae; if dandelion checks in with you, let her know the guy I saw on bill mahers show was this Buddy guy not Rocky Anderson. I was not impressed with Buddy at all cause he sounded like he was different but when the conversation got lively; he really was talking the R's Talking points to get rid of the big three and not depending on the government.
I saw a picture of Rocky Anderson in my travels online with what he stands for about a week and half ago.
what he offers sounds impressive. But what this video says they have not chosen a contender is that right?
This is all so tricky. Thx for the article Jae. I really appreciate it.
Jae; even tho it looks bad, right is on our side. There have been good things happening in the wake of the bizzare. I see your points.
