Democrat establishment and Republican establishment, are they one in the same, running at different speeds?


You have to wonder, when you get the same big government, more spending and more control, restricting choice and freedom, no matter which side of the coin gets picked for us.


We the people, are PO'ed, yet the mind control and corruption takes us along the same path.

How do we the people fix the corruption that is making us a poorer nation and restricting our choices.

Yes, both parties have the same goals for the most part. The two party system has become a method to confuse and hide the truth on what is really going on.

What are the two parties most afraid of? The people becoming aware of their intentions and banning together against them. This is why both parties are very afraid of the Tea Party because that's exactly that they are doing.

Both?

The Republican party benefits from the Tea Party

Yep, I'd say they are.

How do we fix it? That's a good question. I'm not sure there is an answer.

The problem is that the answer has always been "throw the bums out of office".

The problem is that we did that already. November 2010. And it failed. So many of the new folks were co-opted and corrupted by the establishment that nothing changed.

So what's next? I don't know.

Pretty much, which is why I have always voted for the independent candidate since I was old enough to vote in the 2000 elections. Our current president has got to be the biggest Wall Street empty suit banker controlled puppet in history who seems to enjoy giving the largest corporations complete control over the government.

There is no meaningful difference between the parties. They spew different rhetoric to motivate the party faithful and completely ignore their promises once they're in office.
