"If [...] idiocy by elected officials [...] leaves you wishing that we had more options today [...] not only are you not alone, but help may be on the way.

Thanks to a quiet political start-up that is now ready to show its hand, a viable, centrist, third presidential ticket, elected by an Internet convention, is going to emerge in 2012. "

Currently it looks like more liberal-inclined individuals are registering, but it would make for a healthier system if more viewpoints were represented.
