    Well if you keep voting in the same party, youre going to get the same result. Both parties put winning elections before their constitutional responsibilities.

    My issue is not with the particular party we elect; its with our tolerance for the visceral. We need to be "hearding the cats" to a common middle ground and not encouraging extremism. Our system really can not tolerate endless conflict and zero result.

    Whats the middle ground between socialism and capitalism? Why would that be acceptable to either side? We dont need to herd cats, we needs to separate the cats and the dogs.

    A functioning government and economy. All current 1st world societies are a hybrids of capitalism and socialism, the formula just varies. A pure approach of either is ultimately unworkable.

    But it isnt functioning, either because socialism is tipping it over with debt and dependency and tyranny, or capitalism is with corruption and wealth distribution and greed(depending on your viewpoint). Hybridization where everyone loses is no better a system than one side winning. All you do is ensure that everyone is upset.

    Why cant we just split up and let everyone run their lives they way they want?
