To the editor: In response to the letter titled, "Two-party system helps the rich get richer" in the Jan. 7 Reformer:

It is nice to imagine a third option for voters, but there is a problem with this.

Many will vote for a third party, but most will be drawn from the more liberal Democrats, giving Republicans the advantages.

For an example, think of how Vermont's Progressive Party siphoned off Democratic voters, allowing a Republican to become governor. This has happened several times.
