The Fuel Tax Poll: Funding Sustainable Energy.
Well, this site must be growing: this poll experienced more votes than any previously! With 13. Hey, 13 votes is enough to have some kind of interesting spread in the results.
Most people were in favor of reasonable taxation, as I expected. A surprisingly high number of votes were in favor of paying whatever tax it took: 4 people voted for this option. All in all, only 1 lone person was unwilling to pay a tax on gas specifically to benefit the environment.
Well, bollocks to them.
Now, I’m conducting a poll on 3rd parties. This isn’t a question of whether you personally support these 3rd parties, or even embrace the notion of a change from the bipartisan system. However, I’m curious what chance people think each party has of succeeding in becoming a strong enough party to compete with the Democrats and the Republicans.
There are dozens of 3rd parties. For the sake of my sanity, I’ve only listed what I think are the five most substantive alternative parties – and only those with a liberal vein.
For more about the various 3rd parties, you could visit Politics1.com, or look them up on Wikipedia. However, online information on politics is one of the areas most likely to be heavily biased – so if you really want to delve deeply, you’ll need to do a bit more research. Try your local library.
