    I earned a political science degree back when the dinosaurs roamed the earth. Nevertheless, I had my world turned upside down in the past few months, especially yesterday. Contrary to my cynicism, way more Americans turned out yesterday to protest the out of control spending on the federal level than I could have dreamed of.

    The implications of yesterday are huge heading into 2010. Unless something happens which make the average Joe or Jane believe the administration, which is unlikely, there will be a turnover in Congress the likes of which have not been seen in many a year, if ever.

    I think a lot of 3rd party will be elected in 2010, you?

    I think that would be tough to do. Could be done if you can get the people involved and that is not going to be an easy task.

    :lol: Do you think the precious GOP would willingly allow a 3rd party to get in? Same with the Dems?

    The problem is people aren't looking at the bigger picture. If people are going to blame the Obama Administration and Democrats for "out of control spending" then Republicans should be thrown out right alongside them. However, they won't be.

    I think you are in error. In Iowa there is a movement by Republicans to do away with Republicans that do not represent the desires of the majority of Republicans. They are fed up with getting fed full of shit and sold out the back door.

    :lol:

    Really now? Do tell me, what are the "desires" of the majority of Republicans? From what I can see, it's basically as radical as the current fringe of the party except they are just more quiet about it and a few different variations.

    The GOP is a lost party, and trying to redeem it is a lost cause. People trying to defend the Democratic and Republican parties saying that they are redeemable is like defending a spouse after getting a beating from them. When will you learn? Once it's too late? :eusa_eh:

    The Republican party is deeply divided as to whether or not the crackpot wing is going to run the GOP for the foreseeable future.

    Those are the major parties in place. Since that is the case the people need to take them back.
