    Don and Bernie

    Come on Donald! You told Anderson Cooper in so many evasive and thin excuse words you won't run as an independent - coward! And how about YOU, Bernie? What's your excuse for NOT running as an independent?

    I'd have respect, and even consider looking at, Donald and Bernie more seriously if they'd run as third party candidates - shit, Don's got the money. The time is RIPE what with the Democrat and Republican's approval ratings lower than alligator tits.

    So come on Bernie and Don, grow a set and step up. Otherwise it's the Bush and Clinton Crime Families maintaining the status quo. They won't even MAKE the final push if they're not independents.

    I think the usual case is when there is a fairly solid candidate others like Bernie and Donald run in their party to test the waters for future runs. Nothing wrong with that. That is their party. Running as a 3rd party is pretty ineffective except that it takes some votes away from one candidate and can change who the winner will be. I don't think either of them would run 3rd party and insure the opposition wins. If Bernie did, Bush would win. If Donald did, Hillary would win.

    Bernie has voted with Democrats most of the time. He voted against the war. The way the system is set up no one in a Third Party has a chance.

    Lincoln Chafee was a Republican, then Ind., now a Democrat.

    Remember Reagan was a strong Democrat. Head of the Acters Union, then switched.

    Also bear in mind that some states don't allow Independents on the ballot.

    Yea, that was Don's main excuse - keeping Hillary out. I know what you're saying. Never the less, I think the time is ripe for a viable 3rd party. Too bad Don and Bernie weren't so damned far apart, because THAT ticket could probably win!

    Now,that is a thought! How else would they nurse thieir young? Thinking further along that line, how do they mate? Once out of the shell do they forage or starve?

    I was able to see many in the rain forest. I also saw a gym shoe floating by. That has bothered me often.[

    That was one subject I did not worry my beautiful brain with thanks for your answer.

    Now, how about that Gym shoe floating by? What happened to the person wearing it?
