You still come off a bit your party is better though.

That's hard to give up, I despise the current crop of Democrats but I still view them as the lesser of two evils. It is ingrained in us to be Left or Right and though the Dems have shifted significantly they still aren't as far Right as Republicans. So I understand your position that knee jerk reaction or that condescension toward the 'other' side is so automatic.


Well, I don’t really have a party these days BUT….the one I most closely associate with IS better than Obama’s party IMO!


I agree with your assessment; there is some programing at play.




I don't think dropping out of the game is the answer though, somehow we have to rally the people to demand honesty, integrity and carrying out the will of the will people. As you said, there will never be complete non-participation and that would leave the sleeping masses maintaining the only voice...though it comes in the form of duh.


Exactly, but it’s been tried (Occupy, Tea Party, RP Revolution, third-party candidates, etc) and it’s failed every time. I guess I’m just exploring other options because I will NEVER accept failure.

Something has got to give soon…the economy is one bad decision away from failure and we’re about to vote for corrupt (Romney) or more corrupt (Obama) IMO.

I have no answer and that frustrates me!!

If I were hungry, I would not be so foolish as to throw all of the apples away. I would take them and surgically cut out all the rotten parts so that I would at least have something left to eat. It might not be perfect, but it would be better than being left to starve because I was foolish enough to insist that my apples must be perfect. In life perfect is an illusion. You learn to make use of what is good and either ignore, discard or replace the rest.

I know exactly how you feel, I don't concur though. People like us, though we are on different ends of the spectrum, do have answers... valid ones. The true problem is that valid as they are they equate to swinging a rubber sword at a dragon. That dragon can only be slain when the majority of the people forge a sword together.

I saw 2016 last night, and I highly recommend it to all. And I totally understand your point, too.
