    I'm banking on the "cold light of day" effect we're seeing in Britain.

    As much as I admired Nader for his consumer activism, he would have been an awful president. Seems like an ego-maniac.

    When is it okay to vote for a third party?

    Not if the 3rd party votes represent an increase in the chances of a Trump administration.

    Here's a fun read, but that's not what I was looking for, frankly.

    Obama?s Numbers (January 2016 Update)

    Does this work?

    Always some reason that it's not okay.

    Always some reason to fall in line with the establishment and not rock the boat.

    This boat needs a little rocking.
