For anyone who still thinks that voting Republican in the next election is the answer to all of America's problems, I offer this video to hopefully wake you up out of your stupor.

It shows how, while the Dems are spending us to death on entitlements, the Repubs will only do the same to us with their constant warmongering.

Sticking with the two party system is the ultimate prescription for failure.

I couldn't agree more. Dunno why your thread hasn't generated more responses seeing as how Defense spending is what has plunged America into wholesale depression.
We cannot continue to spend as we have, the gravy train for defense contractors must hit the wall eventually. I would prefer that it do so by common consent than my monetary destitution.

I thought this was a pretty cool vid. Don't know why nobody has bothered to check it out. Maybe the vid is too long.

The way this country is going; swaying between warmongering R's and free-spending socialist D's, this country doesn't have long to go before the whole system fails.

The problem is; as it stands now, a vote for a third party candidate is likely to end in the masses putting the same old losers back into power. A vote for the opposition will just put a different bunch of losers into power. It's a no-win situation.

The people need to wake up fast before the two party train drives us right off a cliff.

For the D's to remain in power because the masses continued to play the 2 party game while the awakened split the opposition would leave this country in even more of a mess for the next 2 years.

As for me, I'll probably vote 3rd party in the upcoming election and hope enough people have been awakened for it to make a difference.

edit to add:

For those who don't believe that warmongering is the biggest earmark in US spending, check out the charts in this thread:
