126 million people voted in this election. Gary Johnson took in slightly over one million. What's going to happen in the next four years to change that math? Hell, my candidate, Rocky Anderson, took in 35,000 votes. I don't kid myself that a true, progressive party has a real chance. Historically, third parties can be agents for change in the small scale, one issue at a time. But affecting the overall? Pretty rare.
