cmon do you honestly think your the first person to have this thought? everyone knows that the two party system is a sham. the terms "republicrats"
comes to mind..
but this election we luckily have Ron Paul who is running as a republican currently, but of course his views are that of an independent.
Some speculate that he is only running as a Republican to get coverage in the debates (which isnt working out well) and may switch to running as an
independent if he can get the funding.
dont you understand it takes lots of money to run as a independent.
Sadly I think it comes down to the fact that most Americans can't/won't think for themselves and therefore default to "herd mentality" voting for
the lesser of two evils because the "other guy" can't win.
I would not be the least bit surprised if less than 10% of Americans could even NAME a 3rd party (i.e. Green Party, Libertarian Party, Constitution
Party etc) let alone name one of their actual candidates.
In my opinion the blame lies mostly with the media. They cram the republicrats down our throats 24/7 with little to no mention of anyone else. Because
the media is owned by the same corporations that benefit the most from keeping things the same, so have little incentive to encourage any sort of
If Ron Paul is on the ticket in 2012 he will certainly get my vote, other than that I will be voting 3rd party.

Voting is a waste, THEY CONTROL THE VOTES.
Even if not one single person in this country voted, we would still see the GOV voting themselves around.
I agree with your statement they control the votes!!! Votes are controled because if you look at it in a sense say their is a certain percentage of
people who don't vote. I'm not sure what the number is of people who don't vote, but say for example 42% of people don't vote in the Untied States
when it comes to elections that is a big number of people who aren't voting and affects the ballot and on who can win the elections. So what do you
think they do to make up for the 42% of people who didn't vote in the election they end up voting themselves in office by doing secret illegal things
to either help their campagin and win/everything in that nature. Thats my opinon on this topic. So shows that votes are controled!!!
