Alternative parties and independent candidates don’t steal votes.
Libertarians don’t steal votes. Neither do Greens. Democrats and Republicans do, though…by keeping candidates off the ballot, vote fraud (electronic and otherwise), closed debates, and more surreptitiously by making some people think they are the only choices.
Yet what choice is it when they are all too often the same in all important respects? Here’s an illustration of that from 1998:
This is why I have dubbed them D/R-oids. .
Some have said, don’t hate the players, hate the game. When it comes to politician D/R-oids, I hate both the players and the game.
Sure, there are a few exceptions, but they only prove the rule.
And that’s why I hereby nominate myself for D/R-oid player hater of the year. . Why? Because none of you bitches would do it for me, that’s why.
