Why would we keep voting for the same 2 groups (mafias) that have corrupt and sold our nation out to global interest?
Education system - broken
Economy - broken
Political spectrum - corrupted and ruined
Everything is breaking down and the people steering the ship are both Democrats and Republicans working together behind the scenes to do so.
Trump is the best thing to ever happen to both the Democrats and Republicans. Really high voter turnout and look at what they did. Vote the same people right back into office.
Is voting for Republicans or Democrats worthless?

Ron Paul was a token renegade.
He was chosen to give the impression that there are "outsiders" in DC.

It's pointless to vote strait party. You have to think and research about how they have been voting while in office mainly. The new people running you can assume are partly full of crap and wonky know until they are in office, but 8f the incomabant is already useless, there is no need to vote again for useless people because they represent a party.

See you have a plan at least for how to vote to make things a little better.
I dont always agree with voting all incumbents out, but in general its a good strategy for trying to curb the establishment.
I do not think your vote for the non incumbent, if they be republican or democrat, would be worthless.
However, I am seeing a lot of people saying any vote for any republican or democrat is in fact worthless, and that is what I am disagreeing with.

My opinion may not mean much because I'm Canadian and I don't vote, but if it is indeed pointless and everything is just for show (there's nothing you can do to change the outcome), then what is there to even lose in voting for something that has a slim chance of being different?
That's what I don't understand, people just assuming the worst without even giving it a shot.
Again, what is there to lose?
