Short of an outright revolution, our options are pretty much limited to voting in a new batch of representatives. I take it you did not approve of
Bush and don't much like Obama either.. If so, I agree with you. However, the American electorate chose those people freely--I.e., they were not
coerced into electing them. What you are really on about is the generally deplorable political discrimination of our citizens, and again, I agree
with you strongly. It would seem that if all we do is vote then we end up with representatives that could not pour piss out of a boot--with
directions on the heel. That sad state of affairs would seem to indicate we must get more involved with politics than we have in the past. I suppose
one way to say that is that we are going to have to educate the electorate so they can make better choices. Not up for that--well then we'll just
have to live with the current system, for as Robert A Heinlein wrote (as well as many others), the average person will only vote for two things.
Bread and Circuses.
