    Do you strongly believe that in order for America to become an educationally & a socioeconomically

    advanced, conducive, & humane society, the Republicrats & Demopublicans must be dissolved & a more progressive, intelligent, in-touch grassroots party in which people will be elected based upon their moral integrity unlike the current crop of self-aggrandizing politicians?  Looking at the political climate in America, it is TIME to REALLY CLEAN house!!!!!

    Ummmm, look at the behavior of these so called grass roots...violent, shutting anyone off who doesn't go along with them. No thanks. There's something time be said for WORKING to build something rather than just tearing it down. I'd respect these so called grass roots if they weren't such bullies, closed minded, judgemental superiority beings. "We know everything. The rest of you are sheeple" Go work to build your own party instead of beating up on the established ones. You wont. Know why? Too lazy to be REAL. Glom ming on to what's already there is lazy and furthermore, phony. When I was dissatisfied w d and r, I was independent, and voted as such. You so called grass roots need to do the same.

    Part of the problem we have right now is the rise of the authoritarian left, where liberals see it as right and morally right to involve themselves in every aspect of life - telling people how to live, what to say, verbally bullying people on particular word choices and assaulting them for not falling into ideological line. It is fascism in the name of feelings.
    And the liberals on a whole are unable or unwilling to stand up to the authoritarians in their party, it hurts the country as a whole. It is as if they believe the name calling they resort to in the face of disagreement.
    Calling left wing views "love" and right wing "hate" also hurts the nation, though it is good branding. To say "we're love, you're haters" makes it easy to ignore the views of others as you demonize them to convince others not to listen to them, but it also destroys the ability to compromise. And in that regard, it is entirely the fault of the left, because calling the right "evil, haters, etc" means you can refuse to compromise with people you've smeared as evil.

      Thats rich, coming from people who want to force women to give birth against their will. You get your guns, and everything else you want. You let men with robes rule over you, and want the rest if us to follow suit.

    The root cause of any problems that exist in the US are from the people, or I should say sheep impersonating people. The media, political parties, and groups with agendas all tend to lead the people around by their own insecurity.

    Yes, we need to clean house, senate, and presidency, but in order to do that the people need to stop being led around, and make some use of whatever intelligence they still have left.

    The people have been disunited by these organizations, just as the lion separates and chases down the weak in the pack. With the people the pack is also weak, so the pickings are generous and easy.

    This is not like the puppet regime, it is the puppet people, and many groups are able to pull their strings.

    The system can't be changed, until the people are strong and smart enough to want it changed. But, this year, as in most of the years previous the people are dancing around by their strings.

    Instead of forcing the parties and the candidates to focus on the country and its issues, we are 15 months into a soap opera about the good, bad and the ugly, while silence falls around the critical issues looming over the country and the people.

    You heard about the guys that played the violin while the city burned, that is how I would describe this year's election campaign.
