3rd parties are just companies that want to make money off other companies by making accessories for the 1st party companies products. A good example of this would be Nyko making 3rd party accessories for the products of first party companies like Nintendo, Microsoft, and Sony.
Because people are starting to see that republicans and democrats are one in the same - corrupt! In order to move forward they put "left"foot forward then "right "foot forward. All they have to do is make 51% angry, and they have an almost guaranteed political party in the next election. (Carter-democrat, Reagan/Bush-republican, Clinton-democrat, Bush-republican, Obama-democrat) Any guess on 2016? my $ is on the republicans.
