I see a lot of optimism here. That is good. But it is important not to lose sight of the minority of the Justice Party; there is essentially no chance of Rocky or any other Justice candidate winning the presidency in 2016 at this rate. It is foolish to pour so much money and energy into the presidential campaign when it is obvious they will lose; that money could be used to fund runs for state legislative seats. More than 2,000 state legislative seats were uncontested this year; all it would take are some willing Justice candidates and some motivated campaign organizers in the area.Sadly, such efforts will be much more difficult in solid-red Oklahoma, where Libertarians are more likely to make headway than Justice or Green candidates. Any third-party movement that starts in a state like this will have to compromise and adopt more conservative stances than the national party in order to attract more voters. This will particularly apply to energy policies, since Oklahoma is home to a thriving oil and natural gas industry.
