Let's review. Immigration reform is something an overwhelming majority of Americans support, the Senate has passed a good bipartisan reform bill, and a majority of the House of Representatives would vote to pass a similar bill if given the chance.
resident Barack Obama has recently vacated his protective plastic bubble and moved into a much larger and more secure geodesic dome.
Small parties have obstacles at the federal level. The major parties have inexhaustible funds and internal support. A third-party candidate can't compete against those forces. If smaller, more agile, parties are to compete at the national level, they will first need to succeed locally.

First, you'll have to unlearn traditional English, with its emphasis on making rational thoughts clear through words. Instead, obfuscate with half-truths -- or better yet, quarter- and eighth-truths.
In the end, all of the complaints won't change the past. The ACA was passed and Barack Obama was reelected. Even our nation's most sacred document has been updated 27 times. Are we really supposed to believe that the ACA is an all or nothing proposition?
