WDT: The Choices Suck

   With fewer people enamored with the "major" parties, the WDT rightly notes in an editorial this may be a year when looking at third party candidates, even for the highest office, is worthwhile.
   The Green's Jill Stein is a Harvard educated physician and the Libertarians are fielding former two term GOP governors on their ticket in Gary Johnson and William Weld.
    So many people have continued reservations about the candidates burped up by the R's and D's. Some, as in Jeb! and former bowtie Republican George Will say they won't vote at all which is anathema to the American system.
      Interest in these candidates may allow participation in the rigged Presidential Debate system, generally meant to perpetuate the duopoly.
      Ross Perot participated in 1992 and in 1980 John Anderson and Ronald Reagan debated one time and President Carter refused to participate.
     In any event today's editorial rightly reflects reservations about the two candidates offered up.

Why dont we give up.. Just sit back and let the media elect Hillary for us.. They have made Zika into something really big, but for what purpose. Zika has been around for years under different names and the real sad part, the Child malformations come from big Parma and their medicines and the insect sprays etc etc.. By the way Zika was created by our good friends in Isreal quite some time ago, probably to punish the Nazis hiding in S.America.
This became an issue for one reason only. to scare the world and have the olympics diverted to the US...

Third parties are always a wasted vote. In the end, it will be one of the two so, at worst, people need to decide who is least bad for 4 years until hopefully we get to better choices. Reality.

Harvard, Princeton, & Yale have been 'running things' at the Federal level since Teddy Roosevelt.

Now look at the marvelous condition "progressive" gov't-think has wrought upon the country.
