    Re: The Reason Democrats Are Backing Gay Rights and Marijuana Legalization

    In my opinion, the Republican party could improve by doing three things

    1. Stop placing an over emphasis on the interests of finance and employers and start looking out more for the interests of working people. This notion that the interests of finance and employers automatically take care of the interests of working people is flawed. You need to look at for all of them.

    2. Stop pandering to racists.

    3. Stop placing an over emphasis on projecting US power.

    If they did these three things, they would make themselves more attractive.

    I think both parties are in danger of dying out.
    Or perhaps splitting off smaller parties.

    Unless they stop narrowing their focus and disregarding essential changes.

    Or something.

    Then they would be Democrats
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    The democrats do all 3 of those things just as much as the republicans. They're just sneakier about it.

    I think there are merits and demerits to both a 2-party and a multi-party system. Both are better than a single party, IMO.
