This year America is torn and highly dissatisfied with the direction our country, our bank accounts, and our way of life are headed. Even though the current problems rearing their destructive path have been in the making for well over 10 years, the Democrats who are the current majority party in Congress are gearing up for a beat down in the general elections on November 2nd.
Most voters believe in change, but is picking the other side of the same coin really a change? Let us not forget that the Republican party is at least fifty percent responsible for our current troubles, merely voting for them again in this election is neither voting for change nor likely to result into any real benefits for average Americans.
I’m just as angry and frustrated as the next voter, most likely even more so, but throwing my vote away to the bottom-less vortex our current two major political parties have become is unthinkable.
In this election I plan on strictly voting for third party candidates, not doing so is a vote for the status-quo and frankly, I can’t imagine supporting the destruction of our American way of life by voting in for-profit politicians serving only corporations and their bottom line.
Some people may say voting for a third party candidate is throwing your vote away because they will never win. This myth is exactly what the failed Republican and Democratic parties rely on to continue their tyranny over American politics while us average folks just trying to live a better life wonder why banks are getting bailed out with our tax dollars, why we are in two pointless and costly wars, and why good honest hard working Americans are out of work and being kicked out of their homes by those same banks saved with our tax dollars.
Where is our savior? Who is going to look out for us and reverse the trend of dwindling wages and prohibitive health care costs? The simple truth is there is no savior; we voters must educate our vote and not vote based on some sophomoric allegiance to a party of out of touch millionaires who could care less how things are doing on “Main Street”. I’ve been a life long Democrat, and I have never regretted that fact more than I do today.
I’ve know better for years, but now I can finally vote with a clear mind and I can vote for a candidate that would benefit me, not some political party, not some corporation or bank, but me; and that candidate will not be from the Republican or Democratic party.
If you are just as fed up as I am, I implore you to make your votes count this election, by voting for third party candidates.

You the average American or some fat-cat millionaire who has no idea how tough it is to make a living, provide an education for our children and pay off the ever rising health care costs the majority of us voters have to deal with on a daily basis.
