I'm quite surprised that Stein won over Anderson. Their views were essentially identical, but Rocky came across as far more polished and competent. Previous to that debate, I favored Stein (never heard of the Justice Party), but not now. Rocky is my man.

I knew Johnson would be there, and he should be. He won that debate, in my view, even though he's not my first choice.

I've been enjoying RT more and more over the years.


RT is government-funded, so there may some gain for the Russian govt. by slightly aiding political fragmentation in the US. Nevertheless, if that is Russia's self-interest, it benefits the 3rd party candidates, and arguably for the US in the longer run.

I assume it may be that the Green Party has a more organized base and cadre that was able to get out the vote. The Justice Party may not be much more than a vehicle to put Rocky on the ballot -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Justice_Pa ... _States%29.

You're almost certainly right. He should join the Green Party (I'm not seeing anything that I think differs from the Green Party).

If you missed the first one, Ralph Nader will be moderating another debate among the mathematically potential presidential candidates on November 4. Once again, Romney-Obama have declined to attend.

I wish I could have had the opportunity to vote for Upton Sinclair. Major mancrush (maybe not when he was old enough to be visited by Ralph Nader, who's also on the list)
