They are only put there as the illusion of choice. If I remember right we haven't had a third party President Elect since the 1800's. Even so, just remember its the electoral college, not the popular vote, that determines our dictator.

You are right CrazyKenley, and it makes me sad. For a moment, I think what if, what if they didn't have it all sewn up. I could be wrong but I think it was Theodore Roosevelt who was the last third party.
I know the U.S. is a republic, but unless there isn't a rise in other parties, there is no true democracy.
