    at least at the political class level. It's what makes me move away from both parties-they do the same things in different ways to the people, for their own power/money gains:

    How very true.

    Their politicians suck, and their drooling hordes suck for electing them.

    Basically I agree.

    On the margins I find the Dem Party slightly less repugnant, but on the most important issues facing our nation?

    They are basically on the same page

    You either get screwed by the left, or screwed by the right. That's what a two-party system does. The minute ANY third party platform/person rises up, both parties immediately jump over them.

    I think the thing is, both parties are so beholden to special interests that they can't address the real problems.

    The real problems are all rooted in manufacturing and trade, but no one wants to address that.

    The Republicans are against paying workers fair wages, so they support idiotic trade treaties that move the jobs overseas. The Democrats are so dedicated to snail darters and spotted owls that they don't realize we need a strong manufacturing base.

    The result is that we've run trade deficits every year since 1976. Right now, it's up to 500 billion a year. Every year. For decades.

    I think you missed the point... but left wingnuts do struggle with 'points'.

    Indeed both Repub & Dems suck.

    :evil:

    So, start your own party: We'll call it the "AnnieSamson party," and invite all disgruntled independants and anyone with an Octopus Fetish to join.

    Both parties have essentially ruined my chances of getting funding for the past 2 years. I have no sympathy for either side right now.
