There is the Libertarian Party

http://www.lp.org/

“3rd parties” were the first to propose
Child labor laws
Minimum wage
8-hour work day
5-day work week
Income tax (in 1913 1% to 7%)
Medicare
Social security
Prohibition (ok, not every new idea is a good idea)
Term limits
And more

The two major parties have failed America and now spend so much time fighting that little gets done. Stagnation has been the result since 2000.

A vote for other than Hilary or Trump may send a message. And in CA (and most states) it will not matter as Hilary will beat Donald 3 to 1 or better in the electoral college.

I would like to see Hilary get less than 50% and Trump get less than 40% with other parties the balance.

When Edwards ran against Duke (KKK leader) for governor of Louisiana there were bumper stickers that stated “Vote for the crook not the bigot”.

Vote for neither as there are the options of voting Libertarian or Green.

Perhaps the Democrats and the Republicans should go the way of the Whigs and the Federalists.
