  Third party (United States) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Third parties in the United States are secondary political parties that participate in national and state elections.
And since the new party rarely seems to have the chance or prospect of electing its candidate for governor of a state or president of the country, the voter is inclined in advance to consider its entire ticket as hopeless.
Advocates of third parties generally object to the notion that votes are "taken away" by third parties, because the phrase "taken away" misleadingly suggests that the two major parties have a propriety ownership interest in voters' votes.

 Libertarian Party (United States) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Libertarians state that their platform follows from consistent application of the principle of mutual respect for rights, and the liberty of exercise thereof, and thus are deeply interested in the concept of individual liberty as a pre-condition for moral and stable societies.
Badnarik was chosen as the party's presidential nominee on the third ballot after Nolan was eliminated, a comeback many saw as surprising, as Badnarik had not been viewed as a frontrunner for the nomination — many delegates were won over during the convention itself, due to Badnarik's perceived strong performance in a formal candidate debate.
The Libertarian Party claims to be the largest third party in the United States — a nation which is overwhelmingly dominated by two major parties that typically capture more than 95% of the vote in partisan elections.

Parties that benefit from a government contract are generally assumed to be incidental beneficiaries, and may not enforce the contract absent a clear intent to the contrary.

 No. 03-1566: Orff v. United States - Opposition
Whether the court of appeals correctly determined that petitioners could not sue the United States for an alleged breach of Westlands' contract with the United States because petitioners are not intended third-party beneficiaries of that contract.
Among their numerous claims, petitioners asserted the cause of action at issue here, which alleges that the United States is liable to petitioners for breach of the federal government's contract with Westlands.
The court of appeals' conclusion is especially compelling in light of the structure of federal reclamation law, which directs the Bureau to establish contractual relationships with the irrigation districts with whom it executes contracts, and not with the end users who in turn purchase water from the districts.

Eleventh Amendment: The Judicial Power of the United States shall not be construed to extend to any suit in law or equity, commenced or prosecuted against one of the United States by citizens of another state or citizens or subjects of any foreign state.
According to the Chief Justice there had been insufficient evidence before Congress that patent infringement by the states was such a serious problem as to justify removal of sovereign immunity from all of the states irrespective of whether they provided for some alternative means of relief or the type of infringement involved.
The remedies provided by the states for patent infringement by state entities, if they exist at all, vary from state to state and are in the most part cumbersome.
