  1. Let's hope these three guys are pragmatic enough to realise that many a voter will be willing to vote for all three of these guys, in varying orders.

    If they start splitting hairs over ideology, as so many Marxists are wont to do, they will be doing a great disservice to humanity as a whole.

    I, as a humble voter, admire these guys - all three of them - for coming forward in a selfless way. Unless they had am ideology that is almost quasi-religious they wouldn't do so. I respect them for that, and while they must necessarily work separately one hopes that they train their guns on their common enemies (the racists) and actually encourage voters to exercise all THREE preferences.
