I never understood why it is so hard for Americans to understand that both parties SUCK, yet, they continue to vote for these MORONS over and over and over.

Democrats: Party of Barrack Obama, a clueless president that so far HAS not accomplished one thing, everything he has attempted so far FAILED!
Unemployment at 10.2%, and the great stimulus package was supposed to keep it below 8%, I feel cheated by this president and I NEVER supported him. The party of the PC bull****, everybody is equal, no one gets hurt, be very careful about everything you say because you don't want to hurt the feelings of somebody else, party of total pansies who will even stand up for terrorists, pedophiles, criminals, etc.

Republicans: The party of total morons, Sarah Palin for them is a very intelligent, educated and qualified person, a freaking hick from Podunk, AK who barely graduated from college and quit her job as governor before the end of her term. The party of ignorance, anti-intellectualism and people who worship college dropouts like Rush, Beck and Hannity and see them as "smart" people. Dumb people who don't even understand half of the issues and just repeat whatever Rush, Hannity or Beck say like mindless robots.

Correct analysis. And are you surprised that they both suck?

Democrats and Republicans will move heaven and earth to keep their monopoly on American politics.

With pockets as deep as they have and the indoctrinated state of political stupor most americans suffer, it would be very difficult to reverse the tide before the country is in ruins.

Agreed, but both parties control the system and will do whatever they can to keep anyone else from having a chance. They foster the tastes great/less filling argument, while we are left with crappy watered down beer. I am not sure if people don't want to be informed, or if they actually believe the .gov is working for them, but I am constantly amazed by folks who stand by either party, to the point of denying their parties wrongdoings while demonizing the other side.

That pretty much sums it up. The only thing I can add is that regardless of who is in power corruption rules the day.

Yes, that's our problem. We don't have enough ( major) parties. There's not enough competition.

Well, there is definitely truth in what you say here. It is, however, Barack Obama.

You must be a closet republican.

Both main parties suck because they BOTH are for sale to the highest bidder. Hard to tell GOP from DEM when it comes to results these past 25 years; the rich get richer, poor get poorer, illegals keep coming, health care costs ever more and ever fewer people have it.

If ever we get publicly funded campaigns it "should" change, but don't hold your breath, the money flowing through the K Street influence peddlers will try to get laws and policies implemented to please those with deep pockets.

Like I am supposed to know how to spell an unamerican name like his. You are the typical Liberal I am referring to, your utopic world is full of puppies and magic unicorns that crap rainbows, a world where everybody is equal and people never get hurt because everybody is so careful about speaking their minds!
