Are you like me and fed up with both the Republican and Democratic parties? Then I encourage you to vote for a third party candidate. The likelihood of a third party candidate being elected is slim to none, but if enough folks vote this way, the two big parties might get their heads out of their asses.
I've been told that if any third party candidate can get 5% of the national vote, his or her party will get matching federal funds in the next presidential election. I'm trying to track down a link to supporting information. If it is true, then that's reason enough for me to vote third party. Let's get some of these establishment a-holes out of Washington and get this country running on the right track...
(If any of you out there know more about how federal campaign funding works and if the 5% bit is accurate or not, please leave a comment and/or a link below. Thanks!)
Update: OK, that was quick. I actually found the pertinent info. (see second paragraph). Ain't Google grand?
