No, but they might be if there were any good ones and if anybody voted for them.

They're valuable as a protest vote.

Third party candidates are permitted by our election laws. Diversity is valuable.

Sometimes. John Anderson represented an important perspective. Ralph Nader, at this point, seems to be just an agent provacateur.

The way our electoral system works, third party candidates are a waste.

Not really, considering they will never be voted into office. It would be far more productive if people voted for one of the candidates who were actually going to end up governing them. But I suppose you do need people to speak out for the minority groups, to remind us of their existance, even if they have little effect.
