As long as people only see the two parties as viable alternatives then we will have a problem. 3rd parties can get elected at the state or local level but you hardly ever hear about it on a federal level. Most take the lesser of two evils rout and this is what we get for it. The water is hotter than ever and the frog is still sitting and watching America's Got Talent or other informative shows
It's going to happen again this year but the two we have running this time are so close it's hard to tel one sock puppet from the other. I can care les about Romneycare. That was at a state level and really has no place being talked about in a federal election. He has said he does not like it at the federal level. It's about the only thing I have liked that he's said. NDAA and the Pat Act are fine with both of them so both are dangerous men. But if God come down and run as an independent there would be no chance for a win to get in the big chair.
So what's the best thing to do? Fire Congress and hire in the people that will get it done right as you see it. The POTUS is hamstrung if they don't have Congress. If you're conservative then vote for a conservative that reflects your views, not just the flavor of the month GOP sock puppet. Truth is the GOP left conservatives in the dust years ago. The parties don't matter anymore. It's the people that do. So I hope everyone votes their conscience and not just for a party. It really is the worst thing we can do if we hope to get this country back on track.
Sorry to pick out your post TLuker,
It just got me to thinking and it was not an attack on you or your post.
You are right, we
don't have people in office that represent the people. And as lopng as we stick with the two party system we wont.
