I understand what you mean, about people getting worked up for either candidate or party affiliation. I used to say the same thing.
I personally don’t get over-excited about either of them, because I think of the voting process and the candidates the same way I believe you do - I
mean, I think we have 2 versions of the same product... kind of like Coca-Cola and Pepsi, sure they taste a little different, but they are both
carbonated sodas and serve the same purpose.
Maybe a better example would be Budweiser and Bud Light - or Coca-Cola and Diet Coke, etc...
Anyway, I began to realize the importance of the people who still fight for the candidate they support. Whether they truly believe one candidate
represents a completely different path for the future or if they believe the candidate's ideas are closely tied to each other and the paths they have
planned are not so different from each other, I am very happy to know the citizens are out there fighting.
They prove the private sector citizens still closely watch the government heads and where they are taking us.
I hate to say it, but it seems that the two major political parties are in a war against the general population. It seems like they are working to
destroy any hope for returning the government to a state where the average citizen's best interests are in mind when new policies are presented and
new actions that are taken.
If the political parties are successful in breaking our drive to keep elected officials in check, they will have succeeded and they may be trying to
do just that.
The day when citizens no longer fight for their candidate, regardless of what they believe about the government and political parties, is the day
when the government has accomplished exactly what they want - the ability to install elected officials who have no concern for the best interests of
the citizens… not too far from where we already are.
There will be no more concern for what the citizens have to say about the actions and choices made by government. Blatant lies and moves in financial
arenas and constitutional amendments, to benefit government, corporate, and multi-millionaire individuals, will become common occurrence - more so
That may be a good thing… at least we’d know about the changes, instead of the way they are hidden by lies today.

redundant or has a rant feel, that is not my intention.
I have a friend over right now and she has been interested in ATS for a bit, but doesn’t really know how to use a forum or the proper etiquette for
ATS. This reply has mostly her opinion in it…
