    Just accept it and hope for the best.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    I think that's the one I meant. If you've liked that one for a while.

    Where you pick first choice, second choice, etc.. then the top two run.

    so you stand with the Republican 2012 budget which strips corporate welfare out of the tax code?

    and liberals love their corporate welfare as well. all about those Green Energy Subsidies.

    Yeah, age probably fits too. However, it depends on some factors I think.

    I want to get rid of all corporate subsidies and corporate tax cuts.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

In the end its the same stufff, two sides fighting against each others, not as polarised and extreme as in the US, but moving in that direction. I think all party systems will always eventually turn into two sides fighting each others to the detreiment of the population. This is why I want a party free system.

    Why must the people vote for parties and people instead of priorities, ideas and policies?

    Yet the pension system pays both to those who needs it and those who do not need it.

    I really have no problem with our current style of democracy.What I do have a problem is the fact that the the leftist liberal extremist in the Democratic party and the christian conservative wingnuts of the Republican party seem to be the only voices allowed to speak in this county(hell,it almost seems like this forum is the same way),and that true independents,moderates,Situationalists llike myself are drowned out.

    But then again,that's just my opinion.
    Its not your opinion. Its the truth!

    A truth perfectly synthesised!
