I agree wholeheartedly. We absolutely need a viable, moderate third party.

Yes, remind me again about all those conservatives who are "live and let live" on the whole gay marriage issue?

You see it's the LIBERALS who are the REAL HOMOPHOBES!

Our two party systems have lost the insight on how our constitution was written for the protection of the people of the United States. Both parties have lost sight of what our country was founded on. We can't even have a fair and honest election for our president now. Our congress and senate are bickering over the least little things. If it wasn't the Repub.'s idea they won't vote for it and it is the same way with the Dems. They fight so much among themselves, the issue is lost. It could have been a good bill for the people, but they don't care because they are mostly self serving to themselves or some big corp. We definitely need a middle party to shake them up. I don't ever see that happening tho unless we get a majority. When they take the oath to protect and defend the constitution of the US, I just wonder if they really have read that document just like they don't read the majority of the bills that are put before them. Like everyone else, I ask myself what is happening to this great country of ours? I look at it as a big auction now, SOLD To THE HIGHEST BIDDER. I still believe that we are blessed and we will prevail somewhere along the way.

Since we have conservative Democrats and liberal Republicans I will change my post to reflect so. I will say that die hard Republicans HATE the poor, but not as much as they hate immigrants, minorities, gays and women.
Republicans don't care about people.
They "hate" the poor they "hate" little children and want to deny them medical care.
They "hate" the elderly and also want to deny them medical care.
They hate the entire middle class and want to deny them a living wage.
Who don't Republicans "hate" ? Oh ya, big corporations, they don't hate them. That's even worse. To not hate big business may as well make you Hitler.

Christ, dude, stop comparing things to Hitler.

Comparing Republicans, Bush, Obama, Democrats or whoever to Hitler is really fucking dumb, no matter how much you disagree with any of them. It completely trivializes exactly how fucking evil Adolf Hitler actually was.

Maybe we should bring back the "Whig" party? Abraham Lincoln was once with the Whig party before changing over to the Republican. I remember that from grade school American history. LOL

Carbon has a right to his own opionion! That don't make him
hate kids or old people or middle class people. Get real no
matter what party you belong to there will be people who
are of the same party that will do things you disagree with.
That don't make them evil just being what they believe is
right. All believe that what they are doing will work for the
betterment of the people of the United States, they get a
little ridiculous at times but so do the rest of us. zeezzz!

Hitler had good intentions for his countrymen and gave alot of emphasis on science and research. After all they were pioneers in parachuts, ejection seats, rockets, submarines and alot of this technology is used today for good purpose

Dear Guest, for you to even insinuate the civility of Hitler and defend him would make me think that you are most HATEFUL of Jews. Did you forget that much of Hitler's "scientific" research was performed on many of the 6 million Jews that he killed?

Mr. K. wrote:Hitler went from being a homeless street rat to dictator to one of the most powerful empires in modern history. Once he took power, he was his own man that commanded his military and lead his nation. Bush and Obama and their predecessors, on the otherhand, are all groomed-from-youth new world order puppets, backed and controlled by the big corporations and finance oligarchs. At least with a Hitler totalitarian socialist-type you can meet them on the battlefield and vanquish them. You can't even so much as openly criticize the cowardly fabian socialist scum, unless you want to be labeled anti-American (or in Obama's case - a racist).

I applaud a man willing to speak the truth without fear of not being PC.

Republicans hate the poor. Democrats hate the poor as well but need them to get elected, so they pretend to care.

Now, guest, here is where I may be able to reach some common ground with you. I think "hate" is too strong of a word. It implies an active emotion. I think it is really more of a passive emotion, for lack of a better term. I think the Dems and Reps really don't care one way or the other about anybody unless there is something in it for them. Kinda that " I'll scratch your back if you'll scratch mine." I think they are self-serving and not public servants as they are supposed to be, bottom line. They will pretend to like you, or be on your side, or voice your complaint.....for a price. However, this really has nothing to do with being conservative or liberal as there are conservative democrats and liberal republicans.

Excellent post!!!! ALL politicians are self serving. You have a few that do the job they were elected to do, but most do the job that keeps money in their pocket, and them in office.
