Badger, man, I understand your point. I do,and maybe it will happen,but I don't know if a disillusioned, rather large segment, approximately 48
percent, of the population will ever buy into the system as it currently exists. I just don't know if it will ever happen.

Keep saying it all you want. It didn't make sense the first time and it will never make sense. Those who do not vote are doing exactly what the
politicians want you are puppets and that is all. They don't even try to lie to you anymore because you are beaten. It is like you do not even exist
you have given in. Go ahead and sit it out and let those like myself make all the decisions just don't complain to me if you don't like the results
you gave up any credibility when you left the decision to me.
Well, there's always the hope there will be some grassroots movement by the independently minded, but I don't know. Independently minded people tend
to be anti status quo and not very participative in the foibles of society. Let's face it, the current elections system is assuredly a foible of
We need an entire political reform. Here in Pennsylvania, 2,000 votes puts a Rep or Dem on the ballot. It takes 16,000 votes for a third party
candidate to be put on. Seriously, WTF? No wonder nothing ever changes for the better.
I don't think it would be good to vote a third party. Maybe after 20-30 years it might start to make things better but until then it will be very
difficult. Lets say a third party wins against the wishes of the power establishment. Corporations are going to execute mass layoffs, the banks are
going to raise interest rates and the media is going to blame it all the long awaited third party. It happened here in B.C, Canada. The NDP was a
third party and finally got the province. For their entire term B.C was a ghost town. There was not a delivery truck on the road or a crane in the sky
until the NDP were finally replace and quite easily since nobody wanted to go through 4 more years of that.
We always blame our politicians but they are only facilitating the real monsters and that is the media, banks and large corporations. They decide who
wins and if they don't get their way they make life as difficult as possible so that next time people vote in their favor.
Well, then voting really is a bunch of bull# if that's the case. Of course, I already think it is, so no big surprise to me. Voting isn't going to
accomplish anything. Nothing whatsoever. Certainly not when it comes to the federal government. Locally? Maybe and I even have my doubts about that
