    This is my first attempt at starting a new thread. I read over and over about whose fault it is that something in going wrong in Washington. I never see anybody who seems to feel that the fault lies with those of us who vote. These guys can't get there if we don't elect them so if Obama is too blame so is everyone who voted for him. The same goes for Bush. We "the voters" need to step up and quit blaming the other guy, we are the ones at fault.

    Nearly all our problems stem from letting our reactionaries control our politics.

    And the irrational need for warm fuzzy feelings over the wrong shit!

    If people would vote with their brains instead of their hearts, we'd all be better off.

    Right. We need at least a three party system instead of two.

    I know that technically there are usually more than two parties on a ballot but it doesn't matter.

    Democrats and Republicans always have it locked up so it always boils down to "Conservatives" vs. "Liberals" when really there's no difference between the two once they get into office.

    Romney did the same thing Obama has done with healthcare in Massachussets and if elected president he will simply dissapoint his supporters when he realizes it's going to be in his best interest to leave the Affordable Care Act alone!

    Just watch.

    Bingo. The repubs can use Obamacare as a campaign issue but they have no intention of repealing it (if they repeal it then why would you vote for them?). It's a variation of the old "pro life" scam.
