    Right about what? Does it not depend on a particular issue? Or are you asking which party is the best? A political party is only as good as its members.

    Vote, is the Power, the powerless have ... to change ...
    But, in its current institutionalized form, meaning, practically ... its nothing more than a choice ... between devil and the deep blue sea ...

    The Institution of Vote ... in modern Democracy ... has degenerated into the political Means of maintaining the "status quo" ... the politician's means of staying in power.

    Meaning, the vote keeps the people, where-ever they may happen to be in society ... where, in the Capitalist system, the rich are always oriented towards greater riches ... and the poor, always headed for greater poverty.

    Thus, [in its politicized sense] Democracy, and Democratic Vote ... now represent the "politicians" interests ... and not the interest of powerless masses ...

    Under these circumstances ... those, who do not vote, are the ones, in the Right ... state of mind.

    As Phyllis says, Right about what?

    This question is incomplete. It assumes too much, such as one political party has a correct policy the other must be incorrect.
    No individual or group of people, including political parties or organizations can be assumed to be right on all occasions and all circumstances.

    It's more a matter of opinion rather than who is right or wrong. My greatest concern is how singleminded the parties become over a handful of polarising social issues. This often comes at the expense of aspects of daily life that policians should be looking to make real and meaningful change in.

    Are the two so different? Sure, they argue a lot. But what do they argue about? They split hairs over issues that they essentially agree on. One gets a little more money from unions and labor groups, so they are naturally somewhat progressive on a few issues. But they also receive a ton of money from banks and corporations. You can keep them both.
