The Third Party Presidential Debate
Joe | Oct 24, 2012 | Comments 0
As many have noticed, President Obama and Mitt Romney agree on a lot of things. An odd thing for two politicians who supposedly represent different areas of the political spectrum.
In reality, the Democrat and Republican parties are very close in ideology, only differing on exactly how much money to spend and what aspects of people’s lives to control.
For instance, we know that Obama and Romney agree when it comes to medical marijuana and marijuana legalization; they are 100% against both.
Before the internet, the two parties and the mainstream media controlled whose message was allowed to be heard. Things began to change in 1992 when Ross Perot ran an incredibly inconsistent campaign and still got 19% of the vote for President. And now the internet ensures that anyone can get their message heard.
Things are still relatively new, and the Democrats and GOP still control most of the information flow. But everywhere changes can be seen, like the Third Party Presidential Debate that took place last night. Never before have third party candidates gotten more exposure than they have this year.
Will it be enough to send a message to politicians in Washington? That’s really up to us, the voters.
