    Truth be told bad things happen under both parties. Before Obama got into office we had the Great Recession! Record foreclosures, 10% unemployment, Stock Market crash, $4 per gallon gas, (two) trillion dollar wars going with no end in sight.

    My guess is both conservatives and liberals believe they're upholding the "intent" of the founding fathers. Freedom of speech/press, freedom of religion, the right to assemble and so forth. They just disagree on the extent of those freedoms.

    The two party system on a whole has been a unifying force. Greater disunity and divisions can be seen in nations where a dozen or more parties exists with no one party getting anywhere near a majority. ie Italy

    Aren't greed and selfishness everywhere? And aren't politicians usually a reflection of who they represent? Isn't the money in politic's just a symptom of a government whose intruded into the private sector?

    I will not disagree with you, but will add that conservative vs. liberal is sometimes an issue of geography, such as slavery in the south, and big business in northeast. To day the south accepts offshore drilling--other areas do not,

    So am I,we need to get to the principles which established America. We need to progress beyond bipartisanship & ideologies & get to the main issues of socioeconomic & educational improvement. We also need politicians who SERVE THE PEOPLE.

    "Long ago I realized both parties are different sides of the same coin. You have to look out for yourself!". That's a very cynical view. And no you don't.

    That was when both parties had BOTH liberals and conservatives among them. That's not the case today. You might find a conservative Democrat someplace, but you'll never find a liberal Republican today.

    Good answer, the people should run it! There's real wisdom in that my friend. But Obamacare will ruin the country and put America in government hands, just what you wanted to avoid.

    Astute observation, we have 3 separate and equal branches of government so it has never been run solely by liberals or solely by conservatives.Less diverse are state gov'ts where conservative policies fair much better than liberal policies.
