Personal Inquiry about Elections
I have been thinking a lot recently about the election coming up this November. Most people that I have talked to have agreed that all of the mainstream candidates are not really suited for the white house in one way or another. The odd thing I notice is that people see these as their only options, when in reality there are many other people that they could choose. If one of these lesser known candidates made a big push with ideas that aren't bad or crazy they would have a possibility of actually getting enough votes to make office. Why do people have a mental block against voting for candidates that aren't Democratic or Republican?Is it just because of habit, or do they have a credible reason for just deciding not to vote (a notable percentage of regular voters have decided not to vote this year)? I think that a lot of people actually don't realize that other party candidates will really have a chance so they don't bother voting for them. In my opinion, this minor fact is the the thing that has kept other-party candidates out of office in the majority of elections in the past.
