I have a hard time seeing independents siding with any party right now. Maybe thats because I am one and I want both parties to FAIL!

in america, independents are not a political coalition in the same way democrats and republicans are. one independent might be a libertarian, another might be a socialist. our electoral college and long history of party identification make it highly unlikely, i would argue, impossible that a viable and unified third party will ever exist.

Landslide victory in Virginia.

I don't understand this position, and a lot of people here have it.

Just because someone affiliates with a party does not mean they hold every single value that the party has. Being a Republican, or Democrat, doesn't mean squat just like being an Independent, or Libertarian doesn't mean squat.

A third party means little when everybody is a bad choice.

Unless my memory fails me (which is a more common occurrence it seems), the Democrats control the House, Senate, White House, Governorships, and the majority of the city mayor offices in cities with over one million people.

So what the heck do the Democrats expect? A one party system???

Actually, the single party formally known as the Republican-Democrats has been back together for awhile.

They just didn't tell anybody.

Nothing is going to change until we do what the Russian tanks did to the Politburo in the late 1980s.

The Russian Politburo is muh like the US Capital. They surrounded it with tanks and ordered everyone out with their hands up. Some of them refused to come out.

So the tanks fired onto/into the building.

Next thing you know, they all came out with their hands up. Who wouldn't?

Okay, David Koresh wouldn't. But give a guy a break; I'm trying to make a point here.

But that is what the majority of them actually are.... they have no clue who they support and if they do, they don't know why.

Nothing worse than during an election when they interview these so-called "undecided's" who still haven't made up their mind the day before the election.

Really, if you don't know who you are supporting during the primaries and the candidates stances on everything, I don't think you should be allowed to vote during the general election because you're just too dumb to help decide the fate of the country.

LOL That pic of Pelosi is the look of someone who just had their 2,000-page health care bill shoved up her a** by the Senate.

Hideous, detestable woman!

I was thinking she looks more like she just saw that her name was at or near the top of the list to be "counseled" by her local "death panel" as soon as her law gets passed and it goes into operation.

Your right, your absolutely right. Independent candidates with these small splintered political parties won't get the electoral college votes they would need. But if they joined together as a united party, then you could see change, real change, a viable third party is what is needed.

Independents aren't looking to Republicans as an alternate to Democrats. They already sense that party affiliation is no guarantee that the politician will serve the people, as both parties have already dissappointed them. Rather Independents will look to a viable 3rd party or Independent-oriented individuals joining either party to repair our Govt. The next elections will be more about the individual than the party.

You can't just stroll in here and knock this partisan orgy upside the head with the truth!

Besides, if you hadn't noticed, this thread is about how scary those pics of Pelosi look, and she looks SCARY!

As scary as that picture of Pelosi is, I'll up the ante and post a simply terrifying image of my own (below).

Why are people focusing on the Govt. officials when the international banks stole us blind and are turning us into financial slaves? I can't understand how people get stuck with focusing on people like Palin or Pelosi. Or making a stink about Obama's trip overseas to sell Chicago for the Olympics while the global banks steal trillions!? Which impacts your life more?

One of the reasons I joined here is that I can talk to others who have been awakened to the puppet show of politics, and look past that to the reality of the corporations and banks controlling our world.

We won't have a quality of life until we address those that are really oppressing us.

I found a pleasant surprise while looking through the election results from my home town.....

in the local elections there were lots of third party, no party candidates running.

I think, and am hoping, that we are heading for a system that has more than two parties. and well, look at the state the parties are in, both are fragmenting between the moderates in those parties, and the more hardliners. and I definately expect the religious right to break away and put forth their own people for offices.

guess what I am trying to say is maybe you are taking too much for granted thinking that the GOP will end up getting these independent voters. they may not!
