If a Third-Wayer should win in the Democratic Primaries in 2016, I'd be very

disappointed, but I'd still vote for her/him. The Reason?

We'd still have 4 to 8 years of status quo. It's shitty, I agree, but the Democratic
Party would, at least, still be partially alive -- and where there is life, there's hope.

On the other hand, if a Republican were to win the presidency in 2016, I believe
that this time, all semblance of democracy still existing in our nation could very
well become history. Quite possibly there would be no more free elections. Or if
there should be any elections, they would be of the type used by Stalin in the days
of the former USSR -- just for show only. The Republicans' present-day practice
of fraudulent elections will be nothing compared to what will be in store for us.

The Republicans did not make an all-out Putsch to take over full control of the
entire country during GW Bush's two terms in office. I believe that the main
reason was that they were not quite sure of success at that time -- and a failure
in something of this magnitude would have been an absolute disaster for them!

That was then. Today the story is different. The Republicans have been gaining
considerably in strength and power. They might no longer hesitate about making
their strike! If the Republicans should gain control of all three branches of
government in 2016, it could very well spell the end of democracy in our country
altogether.

This is the main reason why I would still vote for a Third-Wayer. Where there is
life, there is hope -- the hope that more Americans will finally learn that Third-
Wayers' political views and what they stand for are simply too inadequate and
incompetent to accomplish any real change. So, in the following election, there is
the hope that a Real Democrat will finally be elected.

To those who would not vote for a Third-Way winner under any circumstances,
please be reminded that a short-term reaction to disappointment is understandable,
but don't just stop there. Please take a good look at the possible long-term
consequences of your not voting. Whether or not democracy will continue to exist
in our nation at all could be dependent upon what you choose to do. It's an awfully
big and huge decision you will be making!!!

Good luck to us all.
