One of the main reasons why the smaller politcal parties aren't getting any play is because the BUSINESS of politics has become a machine and a
system for those in power, and those who support them in power.
It used to be, a long time ago, that politcal parties were formed around a philosophy, or an ideal, or perhaps a common motivation of people. The
gentlemen and women involved in them were issue had philosophies they would freely write about and discuss.
This is not the case any longer in either the Republicanss or the Dems. The new generations of each party are based upon demographics more than any
kind of philosophy, in truth they both do the same kinds of the things, just for different groups of people. Truth is, philosophy is not the business
of either party anymore. Those who are invlved with the two parties are not thre because they have a philosophy of any kind, those people don't make
it anymore. Their business IS BUSINESS, and the government is nothing more than a relationship between the corporations, the industries, and the
money system. It ceased being an instituion of public debate a long time ago.
Media is now more powerful than it ever was before, and it knows it, and government has whored itself to the media because that's what keeps it in
power. Nothing is going to break into that self-feeding cycle until the whole system comes crashing down. That's why the philosophers and the
reformers and the thinkers can't get any cooperation from the media, or hope to gain any real numbers - It's not about truth or philosophy anymore.
It's about the system, and money, and the brokerage of power.
Sad to say it kids, but the republic is DEAD.
Now we are in a whole new kind of business, and it STINKS.
