Two-party system voting-time blues

Readers lament the third-party candidates who don’t stand much chance against Crist and Scott

Two-party system voting-time blues

I don’t trust [Gov. Rick] Scott or [challenger Charlie Crist] one bit, and I cannot vote for either of them (“Rick Scott’s attempts to connect Charlie Christ with Republican operative backfire,” Happytown, Sept. 24). My vote will be for Adrian Wyllie, for sure.

I really wish Wyllie had a chance, but he may not because of his lack of exposure in the media, which could be tied to the fact that he isn’t pouring exorbitant amounts of money into TV ads like Scott or Crist. Or he doesn’t have the backing the House of Lords … err Democratic and Republican parties ... that Scott and Crist have. At this point, between the two turds, I would urge you to vote for Crist, because the media will never cover anyone that can’t give them money to do it. When does the media ever really give a lot of attention to candidates other than Democrat or Republican?
I agree with you, but I would rather Scott not be in office. So unless Adrian Wyllie can actually start running TV spots that set him apart from his opponents and focus on what he will do so people know what he is about, I don’t think people will vote for him. Many Floridians still believe that there are only two parties in America. During that last election, only Romney and Obama were looked at as candidates, while Gary Johnson and Dr. Jill Stein were both a little more qualified to do the job than Romney or Obama.

The sensible choice for principled progressives is to vote for Farid Khavari. Don’t like Charlie Crist? Spread the word and make your voice heard. Farid Khavari!
