I root for the Cleve Browns even though they have zero chance of winning the super bowl. Chance of winning doesn't come into play on this obsession - doesn't come into play when I vote either. I vote for what I want - I do not "settle"..
Givemeliberty - Mid-America Port Authority pledged $1.3 million from Illinois - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
The goal this year is not to win its to get 5% of the vote so ballot access is not an issue in four years. Right up until about a month and a half ago the Libertarians were doing little if any campaigning. They were fighting court battles the GOP brought against them.

What we need is a better voting system...like the Borda method. Then the 3rd party candidate most assuredly would have a chance....but for just that reason you'll never see it....the controlling parties not wanting a 3rd party to have any chance.

Friday Cat Blogging - 31 October 2014

18 hours, 54 minutes ago

I thought cats were supposed to get gradually calmer and more mature as they aged. Not these two. They're now 11 months old, and apparently they went nuts during my stay in the hospital.
