There is none. Blindly supporting anyone or anything is foolish. It's very similar to overtly religious people. Becoming a fan of any politician or
political party allows them to manipulate you.

what occurred to me
what I've seen time and again is that there is no difference in economic policy between a republican politician and their democratic counterpart.
Sure, they talk a different talk, but what do they actually do that is so different? Much like Clinton and Bush in '92 regarding N.A.F.T.A. Obama and
McCain practically fought over who liked the banking bailout more. Between 2009 and 2011 democrats held the presidency and a majority in both houses
of congress. In that time they managed to give billions of dollars to the banking industry and military contractors (because they kept us in Iraq and
Afghanistan and the rest of the world), they passed a financial reform bill that was the textbook definition of a paper tiger, and gave us health care
reform that put a proverbial band-aid on a gunshot wound.
So when it comes to issues that are emotionally charged and can be debated until the cows come home (i.e. abortion) we have clear divisiveness and
when it comes to the bottom line - the issues that will really effect normal people on a day-to-day basis - things that will have an impact on
interest rates and the job market - we have complete bi-partisanship.
Even if that bi-partisanship comes in the form of faked surrender or under achievement, the result is the same. Sadly, it's been going on for so long
that it's become cliche - the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.
its allway the other guys falt
I would like to say Obama will win i seen it comeing, was just wondering how long it would take before who ever was the Republican party put on the
stupid face...there all actors we need to fire them all
