They're ALL BUMS, the Right and the Left.
They all deserve a a trip to the gallows for being TRAITORS to this country. Though its HARD not to say that the Right needs their ticket of admission there FIRST and FOREMOST.

If you truly believe this, then i believe you have no idea what their real motivations are. They have zero intention of helping anyone but themselves.
Republicans = Democrats
Two sides of the same coin, the only difference is what they "say" regarding hot button issues, but how they act will never follow the promises they tell the people. Their goal is to divide the people, and by making you believe they care about something you care about, they get to you.

If political parties are the problem, what then is the answer? Some would argue that political parties are a logical response to popular elections. A necessary tool of democracy. Of course, the purists will argue that we do not have a democracy. Do popular elections demand political parties?
Justice Stevens: Well it goes back to the fundamental equal protection principle that government has the duty to be impartial. When it’s engaged in districting it should be impartial.
Nowadays, the political parties acknowledge that they are deliberately trying to gerrymander the districts in a way that will help the majority. I just read a newspaper article the other day about the Maryland redistricting, which is designed to help the Democrats. That’s outrageously unconstitutional in my judgment. The government cannot gerrymander for the purpose of helping the majority party; the government should be redistricting for the purpose of creating appropriate legislative districts. And the government ought to start with the notion that districts should be compact and contiguous as statutes used to require.
