It will make no difference. Whoever is in government nothing drastic will change.<br />
American society, like all other first world western societies will muddle through pretty much as it is. <br />
The only thing that may change things, is either a series of back to back natural disasters, across the whole of America, or just the Yellowstone super volcano having a massive eruption. <br />
Sorry but western societies traditional way of governing is too deeply entrenched.
A third party won't get enough votes in the U.S. What people have to do right now is decide who they think brings a more responsible future for the U.S. in terms of their fiscal matters.
My heart says Third Party (provided there's a good one), but my head says it's better to vote major party just to try and make sure the other party doesn't win and ruin the country.
Actually i was thinking of trying to avoid a return to the crack-pot, disastrous economics of the Bush Era, so I'll be voting Obama.
Yup, it took Bush 8 years (and the Republican-dominated Congress the previous 2) all that time to screw the country with their policies. Obama's spent 4 years fighting to stop the slide downhill, despite the best efforts of the Republican Congress to destroy the country rather than let him save it.
