    Spending and debt have consistently skyrocketed in recent decades with Republicans in office. This is the party I'm told is conservative.

    Wars, the Drug War, the Patriot act all have been enormously increased in spending or strength when Democrats are in office. This is the party I'm told is liberal.

    This isn't some back-handed way of me promoting one of the smaller parties, but is the reality now that everyone is solely voting against the other party and not really for their party?

    What makes you think I have faith in a group of scum sucking, self serving, corrupt, power hungry, narcissistic politicians?

    I have faith that there are zillions of planets out there, and that all energy is connected throughout the Universe which we will one day learn to fully utilize.

    Politics is . <--- that big, to me.

    Because I believe the majority of the reps truly have the best interest of The People at heart.

    I realize there are some scumbags amongst us, but this is why I'm not shy to bash them whenever they identify themselves.

    I do not really have any party.
    And I trust nothing a politician says, I judge them by their previous actions not words.

    What causes this belief? You don't know them personally, they certainly haven't exhibited conservative virtues when in power.

    I tend to give people the benefit of the doubt UNLESS & UNTIL they prove otherwise.

    This is how I operate all across the board. In all areas of my life.

    Politicians are no different.

    We all know that, according to you, everyone who doesn't march lockstep with your Messiah is a scumbag.

    And... if you really believe the majority of 'em have our best interests at heart, then you're an even bigger fool than I had you listed as. That's quite scary.... cuz I had you down on the 'dumbass' list.... I may have to revise that to 'actually dumber than dirt'.

    Republicans are NOT conservatives. They just say they are.

    And... both parties have fucked the country.... trust neither.
