Today at work, a discussion about politics invariably starts among a group of five people.

Everyone notices my presence and one asks, "Who are you going to vote for, Peter?  Romney?  Obama?"

Nope.  Gary Johnson.

Three of the five suddenly high five me.

One of the holdouts asks, "Who's Gary Johnson?"

The three begin telling him about the Libertarian Party and start trying to convert him.

This is significant because, just a few months ago, no one at work had any clue there were more than two parties.

Now, three of them not only have heard of the Libertarians, but are congratulating me and welcoming me to the herd.

Come on, 5%....

While I expect as much from you, I have to say that I am very pleased with 3/5ths of your co-workers. I have been pushing for people to vote third party for years, it's nice to see it finally starting to happen.
