I voted for the Green Party candidate for mayor today.

He was running on a platform of abolishing corporate welfare.

When I don't know squat about the people, I always vote libertarian just to try to help boost their numbers.

Merely ending corporate welfare is not enough.

You've gotta break 'em from sucking eggs.

It makes about as much sense voting for a Green Party candidate as it does for a Libertarian Party candidate, wouldn't you say?

In the sense that neither will win, yes.

I wasn't arguing about the SENSE of it c-man and you know that. Are you now willing to admit there's one party in Washington.

I knew it despite the many pronouncements otherwise - Grundle is a Green!

Good for him. One good position vs. 1000 bad positions (if he's at all a typical Green).
