Pittsburgh Third Party Idiocracy

6 posts in this topic


I'm not ditching Luke yet, (sorry, but a "progressive" Republican is still going to be in bed with the state party, which is unacceptable to me), but after reading the articles about the debate last night, I decided to go hunting around our third party options to see what everyone's stance is.

A. How does Tony Oliva (L) not have a website? I would normally NEVER vote for a Libertarian, but this guy seams to have a very good track record. And as a small business owner, I can under stand the need for some serious tax reform in Pittsburgh and PA. But can I find anything out about him? NO!! Hello, its 2007, if you want to be taken seriously as a candidate how about spending $4.99 on a domain name so I know what you are freakin' all about.

B. Why is there not a Green Party candidate? In a solidly blue city, why is our opposition all coming from the right? The Green Party in PA need to get its $h*t together if it ever wants to be taken seriously, even as a fringe party

I went to the debate last night. It confirmed all my worst fears.

Luke Ravenstahl engaged in unethical and dishonest arguing techniques all night. The only thing more disgusting were the plants in the audience from his administration clapping for his awful behavior. He makes me want to puke.

DeSantis was so superior to the other candadates is was embarrassing. My boyfriend said it best when he noted how humiliating it must be for someone like DeSantis to even have to share the stage with these people let alone live with the knowledge that he is going to lose to them.

Tony Oliva would be my second choice. He did not come across as bright or articulate as some of the others but he was an honest debater and seemed to have a grasp on the reality of Pittsburgh's economic situation which is more than I can say for Ravenstahl - who, once again I must point, out is an unethical, arrogant, deluded, celebrity-chasing moron.

I'd think I'd rather even vote for the insane socialist over Ravenstahl.

3rd party vote is a wasted vote. This is the best chance ever to destroy the machine. The R behind Desantis is meaningless... he is more progressive than most of the D's around here.

If Ravenstahl wins the election, my hopes for Pittsburgh will be greatly diminished. You vote for Ravenstahl, you vote for the status quo. As for the third party candidates, none of them can hold a candle to DeSantis.
