If you think the Democrats and the Republicans are only in it for themselves and don't care about real people, a new Internet-based political party might be for you. Americans Elect has just won minor party status in Nevada, which means it will be able to place its candidate for president on the ballot in 2012. But will the Internet produce a different kind of politics? Can enough people be motivated to attend an online nominating convention? Or will America Elects suffer the fate of most third parties in American History and fade after one or two elections.
