A lot of people didn't vote for Obama because of what he can bring to the table or his political ideals, rather they voted for him just because he is
black. Furthermore, a lot of people were careful not to critisize certain aspects of Obamination, as they don't want to be labeled racist, which is
often worse than being a labled a a child molestor.
I'm obviously not a fan or Obama, though I see the neo-cons who currently run the Republican party as equally dangerous, if not more so. Really, to
me, the two parties are only different sides of the same coin. They are only in opposition to each other on relatively unimportant issues, while the
issues that should and do matter, they both agree on. These issues and matters that they agree on, are ususally against the peoples' interest. So, in
effect, we are basically without anykind of political opposition.
If you are conservative, I suggest you look into the libertarian movement, as the Republican party has lost it's conservative roots and no longer
even resembles conservatism. By voting for either the Republicans or Democrats, you are only helping both of them, regardless which party you vote
A lot of people like to think that they have to vote for one or the other and they often say that it is a wasted vote, if you cast that vote for a 3rd
party. However, this notion is not correct. A vote for the lesser of two evils is still a vote for evil. Unless we overwhelmingly show our distaste
for this current trap of the two-party political system, we are only going to continue on this endless loop that lacks opposition.
Even if you vote for a 3rd party candidate and that candidate doesn't win, it sends a strong message that people are on to their corruption. It
really does help to vote for 3rd party candidates, even if they have no chance at winning.
It will do us no good to keep trading Dems for Repubs, then back to Dems again and this is what's going to keep happening because people feel like
their vote will be wasted if not. That is the most silly think I have heard about this whole two-party system. Lets do whatever we can to ensure the
safety of an opposition and let me tell you, the Dems are not an opposition party to the Repubs and vice versa. They both have the same interests and
unfortunately, those interests do not include your interests, rather they are at the cost of your interests.
