As we rapidly approach Election Day, I've heard a number of my friends say that they just can't vote for the lesser of two evils. They will neither support Obama or Romney for president; instead they'll support a third party candidate or they won't vote.
I have a tremendous respect for the zeal and the objectives of some of the alternative parties. Although not in complete agreement with all of their positions, I've been honored to speak at the conventions of the Constitution and the Christian Party in the Tar Heel state. I've lobbied in support of making it easier for third party groups to get on the ballot in North Carolina. I strongly believe that they should continue to make their voices heard and not lose heart.
