I loved this comment on an article I posted a few minutes ago:
I have tended to vote for Republican candidates, not with any enthusiasm, but because the Democrats have become so toxic. The once “party of the working man” became a collection of race pimps, militant feminists, militant gays, socialists and other assorted freaks. I could not seriously consider voting for Democrats because they had become a carnival side show.
The Republicans under Reagan, were pro life, pro economic opportunity and for a strong national defense [note that a strong national defense and continuous war are not the same thing]. The GOP however, under W Bush became a party that favored corrupt, greedy corporate crooks, constant war, and expansion of Federal Power [No Child Left Behind, expand the “war on drugs”, etc]. W Bush screwed up so very badly, that the toxic Democrats regained both Houses of Congress in 2006, and the White House in 2009.
I wish we had a third party which resemebled the platform of Ron Paul, unfortunately, the two major parties have stacked the deck against third parties, so that we are forced to choose between bad and worse. Neither party truly represents us any more. Where do we go from here?– Austin
