Alright. Those are the people I want to hear from in this thread. Vote in the poll, please, for no other reason than to be counted and acknowledged. It is not intended for debate, though, civil debate is always encouraged. Now. Trends. For all of the numbers we hear, the one thing we never see discussed on mainstream cable news entertainment programming platforms are trends. And there's good reason for that. After all, they don't call it programming fier nothing. Here's why. 50%. Using the 2014 Mid-Term results as a model, 50% of American voters were no longer affiliated with either the Republican or Democrat parties. 50%. Support for the two-party system has been falling every year. Every year people are becoming more and more fed up with this fake two-party system. It's why Congress can have such a miserable approval rating that it does. 2014 was an unprecedented year because third party candidates had the highest polling numbers in modern history. Debate rules were changed as a consequence so that independents were blocked from debate, even after winning the opportunity, and they were illegally removed from ballots. Rule 40b, the Ron Paul rule, for example, was enlisted after he already won the opportunity to debate. This, of course, was said to be a means of showing unity in the GOP. Now, that gave us Trump in 2016. And of similar notion, Bernie was also blocked from the DNC nomination as well. The GOP hated Trump. But, they later realized that he was a factor in repopularizing the GOP, so they nominated him. As well, the DNC did not want Bernie wrecking the status quo, even after he earned the right to be heard. Both those groups, like em or not, won the delegate game to the extent that they needed and they earned the right to speak. Here's the point. Do not think for one second that the establishment bosses in the fake two-party system haven't noticed the recent trend in Independents, third parties, greens, socialists, constitutionalists, etc, and do not think for one second they won't continue doing something about it. It's rigged! That's really all I have to say about it. Independents, third party, libertarians, greens, socialists, constitutionalists, I don't care what your worldview is, just vote "No" if you do not affiliate with either the Democrat or Republican Party in the poll please. I wanna see what we're working with. Thanks!
