The Republicans most certainly do not represent me. Nor do the Democrats. I don't know why that concept is so hard for you to grasp, is it because you can't fathom not being a follower?<quoted text>
Okay, what's your plan? All I hear from you is how "enlightened" you are about the two political parties. But, info alert, that's what we've got, or haven't you noticed. We know how the "system" works but, less a revolution, how do you propose to change it?
And, once again, if you were truly objective, you'd notice that I don't tout the Democratic Party very much. I just observe and share the fact(s) that the Republicans have gone so far off the reservation in rational, objective thought that they have become dangerous; economically, socially and philosophically.
Your persistence in trying to get me to acknowledge your bi-partisanship-ness belies your insistence on ignoring the dangerously retrograde morphing of the Republican party into a clown act of ignorance worshiping, fearful, angry people who thrive on increasingly narrowing their world view rather than expanding it.
So, I agree with you that the "powers behind the throne", the oligarchy, are the ultimate threat, my more immediate concern is the increasingly deranged obeisance that the Republican/tea party is a working tool of said oligarchy. They, unlike the Democrats have made it clear that they are the enemy of a rational, educated, patriotic, optimistic, loving people.
Thus, I share the mountains of evidence of their hypocrisy and outright lies. You proclaim your bi-partisanship, I my well informed fear and warnings of the take-over of my fathers Republican Party by a so-called tea party full of fascistic tendencies and behavior. Why are you arguing with me? Are my postings un-true? Point out the errors. Who do you think represents you, politically?
The reason I'm more critical of the democrats these days is simple... they are the ones in power. They are the ones accomplishing an agenda that is against the founding principles of this country and the Constitution. The republicans? They are just a side-show that is ultimately going along with the democrats.
You don't tout the democrat party much? I should hope not. What would you tout? High unemployment? High gas prices? Almost a trillion dollars of wasted "stimulus" funds that did nothing other than pay his donors and supporters back for getting Obama elected? Running guns into Mexico to blame the 2nd Amendment? Using executive privilege to cover it up? Running weapons to terrorists in Benghazi? Lying to the American people about the attack that left 4 dead there? Irresponsible, unsustainable spending? Refusing to even consider cutting spending? Claiming that the rich need to pay more taxes... but raising taxes on the middle and lower classes instead? Killing innocents and children all over the world with drone strikes? Saying that the government can kill US citizens on US soil with a drone, no judge no jury? Signing into law a bill that states they can indefinitely detain citizens without pressing charges or due process? Ramming Obamacare through even though it will erode care and further bankrupt the country while insurance companies get richer? Having a peace prize in one hand and a kill list in the other? Need I go on?
The point is that we need to stop focusing on what they are saying, and start focusing on what they are doing.
I could write a long list like the one above about Bush's criminal acts... but he's in Texas painting pictures of Dogs. Obama and the democrats are RIGHT NOW in Washington bankrupting the country and trying to disarm law-abiding citizens.
I want people to wake up to the fact that both parties have been completely hijacked. The time to move on from them is now. Independent thought is our weapon. If you forget about what they say, and only look at what they do... you will wake up and support neither party.
