An open letter to Americans Elect

Here is a letter I just sent to Americans Elect.

Absent a multiple-winner voting system, why, oh why, would I want to support a third party?

I prefer President Obama to the present cretinous Republican candidates. In that case, unless I truly believe that your candidate will win, I should prefer that your candidate be more like the *Republican* candidates than the Mr. Obama, because all votes for your candidate will detract from the mainstream candidate most like yours.

Your candidate is more like Obama than any of the Republican candidates, so I conclude that your group will help the Republicans far more than the President. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if I learned that your group is simply one more Republican dirty trick.

Any comments?
