Default Viable Alternative?

A Challenger for Obama? Progressive Former Mayor Rocky Anderson Enters Race With New Third Party | News & Politics | AlterNet

So the problem is over course two-fold: the media will completely ignore this guy; and by not taking any large donations he'll be limiting himself in a race where the two parties are going to spend $1 billion each.

thoughts?

I read this the other day. The only way the guy even stands a chance is a total internet blitz, twitter, facebook, youtube, and any other "uncontrolled" outlet. He would have to be one hell of a speaker, and have some very sharp internet guru's to get those speech's to go viral. I'm all for a viable third party, but I'm not crazy about calling it the justice party, sounds scary....maybe I just have an irrational fear of the "justice" system as it is.

Campaign spending has been a pretty good indicator of who gets elected unfortunetly. Just means the more money they have to spend, the more that money came from corporate special interests who will dictate the presidency. They're not giving that money away for nothing.

no they are not, and they've shown through corporate profits and ceo salaries that it is completely worth it. buying politicians is worth it.
