It may be an unexpected use of the Internet. However, it is a truly rotten idea. The big problem with Nader, Cobb and Badnarik is that the American electoral system does not allow for third party candidacies. Until the system is reformed, there is no place for these spoilers. As Hunter S. Thompson put it in Rolling Stone (http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/story/_/id/6562575?pageid=rs.Home&pageregion=single7&rnd=1098389941612&has-player=true&version=6.0.12.872): "Nader is a fool, and so is anybody who votes for him in November -- with the obvious exception of professional Republicans who have paid big money to turn poor Ralph into a world-famous Judas Goat." That applies to any fool who encourages the supporters of Nader, Badarnick, and Cobb.

Better to put one's energy on reforming the electoral system so as to make third party candidacies viable. See my entry (http://www.typepad.com/t/trackback/1141146).

In short in America,the way the system works - or doesn't- third party candidates, unfortunately, must not be encouraged. Period.

Jag lyssnade en gång på en mycket upprörd amerikans förklaringar att tvåpartisystemet var det enda sant demokratiska. Man lär sig nåt nytt varje dag.
