Reminds me of a joke,

Two friends, from the old east and west germany died on the same day and wound
up in the line to hell together. After talking about their lives, they finally 
got to the front of the line, only to discover that there were separate Hells
for Socialist and Capitalist peoples.  They agreeed to meet again in one year
to compare notes.

The Capitalist said:
The days are awful, we are boiled in hot sulfur and tar, and the demons are 
really sadistic. But the nights are our own, and we have parties and dances
and all the girls are pretty and all the men are fit, so it's a lot of fun.

The Socialist said:
We don't have any parties or dances, but most of the time we have no coal 
for the fires, if we have coal, then there is no tar, if we have coal and 
tar, then we are surely out of sulfur.  Only once did it happen that all 
three items were in stock, at the same time,and then the comrade demons had 
to attend a meeting about it, and they were gone all day, so there was no 
torture.  So you see, he said, even our Hell is better.

Every time a third party candidate comes up, both major parties say:
"You can't vote for him, you'll just be handing the election to the other guy"
Well, Democrat and Republican are just two different names for the same thief, 
So what does it really matter?  This time I'm voting Libertarian.
