    Why don’t we do away with the two party system and only have a Constitutional party of our Republic? The right is to far right, the left is to far left the Independents fan far right and far left. After all do you think we would have a debt as high as it is now if we had people in Washington that cared for the "people"? Today and for many decades we've had a government that only does stuff for their party not for us the people.

    Why not revamp Washington give our Government an Enema and go back to basics.
    If you’re a politician, you get no pay, you work for the people not for the money..


    Do you agree or disagree and why?

    WE can only hope, though only by a margin the partisan freaks are still in the majority. Hopefully they will both lose tha majority before the next election.

    Because the Right isn't far right and alot of the Left isn't really far left either.
    This country is a centrist-right country.

    However, there are a lot of people who simply don't like to think or do research on their own, they just swallow whatever bullshit the government hands them. Those people are the ones that are keeping us from moving past the bipartisan control.

    I don’t know how anybody could say that the right isn't far right and the left isn't far left when both parties borrow and spend money we don’t have. Our country is virtually bankrupt, and Obama wants to borrow more, and if Bush was in office still he would be borrowing and spending our money as well. Obama wants to force this health care crap down our throats that would bankrupt our country. Hence why I said do away with left and right and get people in office that care for the "people" AKA US

    What makes you think the Left and right aren't out of control?

    Who do you think "cares for the people"?? The Libtards? They are the most marginal of all marginal parties. They don't care for the people any more than Nancy Pelosi.
    Bush wasn't "right"> Bush was a big government Republican in the mold of Nixon.

    The right is so extreme and anti American. Can't compare the left to that mess.

    This is a right of center country with the MAJORITY near the center. That's why John McCain would have been good for this country. Others may disagree, but he is the type of politician most people claim they would like to see.
