    Both sides sell out to monied interests (in some cases, the same ones), both sides say one thing to get elected then do another thing in office then spin everything yet again for the second election, neither side has any interest in seriously debating the issues of the day, both sides prefer increasingly hysterical sound bites, both sides prefer to look like they're solving a problem rather than actually solving it or admitting they can't, both sides do everything they can to rig the electoral process so that we're stuck with a two-party system.
    Except Mitt Romney has a history of turning someone elses failures into success whereas Barrack Obama has been proven a failure on every level. It's better to give a proven success a try rather than continue with the Celebrity Apprentice.

    It's not about living in the past, it's about looking at what's happened time after time after time in the past and wanting to go in a different direction.

    As someone who is insisting on going the same route, is you who are living int he past.

    No, because it's a party issue with both parties.

    Who Mitt Romney is is irrelevant. He is another entry on a long list of people who have been willing to say whatever it takes to get donations, 503(c) support and ultimately votes.

    Isn't it better to at least give the country a chance to improve or is it a hopeless case?

    I would very much like to give the country a chance to improve. I would much rather not consign it to hopeless by continuing to support the 2-party system.

    What would you want this third party to do?

    Would it not be better if there was less federal government and more state rights? That way the special; interests in Washington would have less power and that power would be transferred to the hands of the locals, resulting in greater direct democracy.

    We need only to look at Europe to see that multiple political parties do not guarantee success.

    Ideally, sure.

    No, it also takes informed voters holding elected officials responsible, but we need to at least start with not being locked into picking the lesser of two evils.

    Very true. Obama has shown an olympic class boarding house reach in claiming the success of others for himself, and a willingness to throw anyone and everyone under the bus in order to avoid blame for his personal failures.

    That's certainly a worthy goal but right now people have to make a choice which will effect the direction of the nation for many years to come, perhaps permanently. It will take a very long while to get to where you want to go and there doesn't appear to be any sign that Barack Obama wants less government, quite the opposite in fact, whereas Mitt Romney has stated he wants less government through attrition.

    It would seem that on every level the choice, for now at least, is quite clear.
