Yeah, but there will still be liberals and conservatives that exist, even if the parties disappeared.
If I had to vote, I'd vote for Obama. I do not want Bush's' neo-con crew in office again. They tried to go to war with Iran back then but was stopped. They'd probably try again this time around.
Little distinguishes the foreign policy agendas of the past three presidents – Clinton, Bush, and Obama. Those who question this claim should review Clinton’s national security strategy, which reads like a carbon copy of the Bush administration’s strategy – articulated only a few years later.
Obama’s behavior as commander in chief is identical in most respects to that of the Bush regime, as he’s displayed a fundamental contempt for the rule of law, for the sovereignty of foreign nations, and for the basic securities of the people of the Middle East and surrounding regions.
Obama has a momentous opportunity to do what he repeatedly promised over the course of his campaign: bring actual change. But the more we learn about who Obama is considering for top positions in his administration, the more his inner circle resembles a staff reunion of President Bill Clinton's White House. Although Obama brought some progressives on board early in his campaign, his foreign policy team is now dominated by the hawkish, old-guard Democrats of the 1990s. This has been particularly true since Hillary Clinton conceded defeat in the Democratic primary, freeing many of her top advisors to join Obama's team.
The prospect of Obama's foreign policy being, at least in part, an extension of the Clinton Doctrine is real. Even more disturbing, several of the individuals at the center of Obama's transition and emerging foreign policy teams were top players in creating and implementing foreign policies that would pave the way for projects eventually carried out under the Bush/Cheney administration. With their assistance, Obama has already charted out several hawkish stances.
This is Change?

im thinking about voting in favor of the green party... jill stein
i dont see why most people just think there is only 2 people to vote for.. its all i hear, vote for either obama, or romney..
i dont want either of them... so if i do vote, which is a big if... ill probably vote for jill stein, if i am not able to vote for ron paul, since i hear hes not running anymore?
I will vote for Barack Obama, and furthermore, I will vote straight Democratic ticket. Why? Because there is a difference, a HUGE difference, between the policies favored by the Republicans and the policies favored by the Democrats, and one of those two will win.
Claiming both parties are the same and then not voting or throwing away your vote is a total cop out. People do that because they are afraid to commit to what they really believe, and like almost every other situation in life, they allow their emotional brain (primarily fear) to make the decision, then they use reason to justify the decision. It is the easy way out, the path of the coward.
that they have a choice
