One of these guys is actually running a campaign.

The other one is simply taking your money so he can travel around the country talking to a few like-minded friends.

There will be a test on this later.

and yet they'll probably get about the same number of votes.

A good point, if you buy into the argument that votes = success.

For a third party presidential candidate, the biggest metric for success isn't votes, but impact on the national dialogue.

So far, Nader's having a larger impact than Barr because he's doing the hard work.
