You just compared the existence of a conservative political party to the KKK. As much as I hate the GOP, you sound like a crazy man.

ad hominem

Third parties are a waste of time.

argument ad nauseum

When was the last time that one won an electoral vote? A seat in Congress? Or, let’s make this simple for you- when was the last time a third party governed? Well past 150 years ago. Yes, real political parties will usurp the rhetoric and a few policies from the make believe ones that people like yourself advocate for, but in the end, there’s only two parties that can govern in this country.

You base something’s merit on when the last time something happened was? So, given your logic, since it has been over 60 years since an atomic bomb was dropped, are restrictions on nuclear weapons now a waste of time? You call me the crazy one, but I base something’s merit on its principles and morality, whereas you discard something as a “waste of time” in the same paragraph that you acknowledge that third parties can influence the rhetoric and policymaking of major parties. Maybe we have different definitions of what a waste of time is.

You provided a Pew Poll, a discredited pollster who said Mitt Romney was going to win.

You mean like right here, where they said Obama was in the lead over Romney?

Asking a person why they are voting for Clinton is a useless question-

Why is that a useless question? What do you have against data and information? I, personally, find that information immensely useful. If you don’t, that’s fine. You don’t have to make use of every piece of information you get if you don’t want to. You are entitled to ignore facts; it’s obviously a right that a lot of Americans indulge in.

I think she’s great, and I’m voting for her because I want Trump defeated. The fact is, at no point has her general election support fallen consistently far beneath 65% amongst Democrats. Most of us like her, even if many don’t love her. I am voting for her to stop Trump, and because I think she’ll make a great President.

That’s great for you, and thank you for providing us with a sample size of one person who wants to speak for millions, but I’ll still take the polling data that draws from thousands of respondents.
