Maybe you should listen to your intuition, pay attention to your gut.

None of the major parties have our best interests at heart.

Vote third party, or vote for evil.

The Democrat Party has become a party of elites that want to control the lives of everyone and keep a large poor class dependent on their crumbs they control and pass out. The Republicans have their issues as well but there are less income inequality issues in Republican areas.

I don't believe anyone in Washington has my best interests at heart and that includes lying Donny who's trying to get there.

just about every "conservative " policy has drained the middle class. I believe George Bush Sr. Said it best. It's all a bunch of voodoo economics on the right.

The conservative, Repub. party is being transformed by Trump to make it more inclusive and promote middleclass ideas and prosperity. That's why the elites in the GOP are upset and the democrats are critical too.
Dem.'s have abandoned the middleclass completely. They support the 1% of elites and pander to the poor they want to control and place dependent on government expecting to benefit by their vote. Everything they are doing is an effort to eliminate the middleclass.

You have things COMPLETELY REVERSED. Which party wanted to get rid of FEMA? You know the agency that's suppose to help people during emergencies? And which party wanted to get rid of the EPA? You know the agency that's supposed to protect the environment and people from getting sick or poisoned etc? Yeah the REPUBLICANS wanted to get rid of those agencies.

Tell me why the GOP would want to get rid of the EPA? Because the rich don't like any sort of regulation that prevents them from making more money no matter what the expense is to the environment or the people who live in those areas affected by big business.

Same thing with Wall Street and how the GOP constantly call for less regulation when clearly we need MORE REGULATION to prevent another 2008 meltdown. Again who benefits from less regulation of Wall Street? Mostly the rich of course and who pays the price when they screw up? Mostly the regular people who the Republicans supposedly are fighting so hard for.

The bottom line is while the Democrats are also influenced by the rich as well, its pretty damn clear that they're the ones that are trying to do more for the average American than the GOP EVER WILL and its been that way for many years now ever since the crazies and the greedy took over the Republican party.

Washington DC is a club for wealthy elites, and the middle class isn't invited.
