Republican or Democrat figurehead? Your choice. 43% of eligible voters chose to exercise there rights in the last presidential election. That's a whole lot of disenfranchised citizens.

Ron Paul got F-ed by his own party. From fixed caucus wins across the nation, miscounted votes and down right fraud he's been treated like an albino stepchild. To say that both party`s are the same is disingenuous. I can`t remember the democrats ever F-ing a candidate by vote fixing and lying. Perhaps one of you right wing loons could inform me but you need to first be honest with yourselves. Your party is a mess, their virtues are now lying, cheating and greed. How can anyone in their right mind support support such nonsense?

I've been saying for years that the 2 party system is a complete cluster f++k. I agree, but though it wasn`t planned that way, it`s a reasonably stable solution to the system set up under the constitution. However, that`s not the real problem. Parliamentary systems with proportional representation and government by coalitions actually produce even worse results in terms of freedom and prosperity. The problem is that we have abandoned the concept of limited government and the rule of law in favor of mob rule, aka, democracy. There is no constitutional authority for the Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Education, Energy, Health and Human Services, Housing and Urban Development, Labor, or Transportation, nor is there any authority for Social Security, Medicare, or food stamps. Finally, there is absolutely no constitutional authority for drug prohibition. But voters disagree, so here we are, and the constitution be damned.
