Neither party has clean hands. Both are just filled with complete incompetent dumba$$'s that aren't qualified to run a keg party, let alone our government. Both sides should be ashamed of themselves for too many reasons to list here!
However, if whichever party you are affiliated with, you cannot see the Bozo's that you are supporting and can only see your parties stance with unequivocal eyes of support, then you have lost the ability to think for yourself and only have the ability to adopt the views presented to you by those that just want to manipulate you into their line of thinking (Glen Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Bill Maher, etc) and keeping you focused on the many problems of the other side, while completely distracting you from the many problems that need to be addressed in order to better our government. Both parties have thrown the average american under the bus for almighty corporation.
A house divided cannot stand!
Everyone on both sides of the fence should be united together to abolish Lobbying, war profiteering, campaign contributions, and allow whoever the president to have a "line item veto". That is the only way we will ever see real change. (there is much more but you get the picture)
Every time you call somebody names that doesn't agree with your political visions, you are playing right into the hands of those that want to keep us divided as americans......which only keeps the status quo and business as usual, which any idiot can see is just further dividing our country.
Maybe if those running for office had to pass a basic government competency test, then maybe you all would see who the idiots are, and vote them out, no matter what party they are in. Doesn't that make some sense?
In today's age, shouldn't the President have a PHD in economics? (foreign affairs, finance, business, etc) or some equivelent that lets the voter know that they are even qualified for the job.
We have a goverment that is filled with people no smarter than the cast of "Jersey Shore"! This is because voters are more interested in who looks the best, has the best smile, the whitest teeth, the most eloquent speeches, instead of those that aren't very good looking, but have the education to really get us back on track. However, if that qualified person were to come around, those that are so blinded by loyalty to their party would never see it, anyways!
Thanks for letting me rant!
P.S. I have so much disdain for both parties....I could go on for 100 pages!
