    Well, they own a lot of GM. That's kinda like being a business, isn't it?

    I think the point is that government needs to be what it hasn't been for over 100 years or more, accountable, and responsible with our money. Think of it like we are the shareholders in 'USA', and government needs to act that way.

    What a stupid question to ask. Governments are not businesses and that is the main reason we don't need a businessman as our president.

    Yeah, what we need to straighten things out is a community organizer with a law degree that doesn't understand that the SCOTUS *can* rule laws unconstitutional. Oh wait... that's not working out so well.

    Yes imagine that, a status quo politicians upholding the status quo. So the solution is a different status quo politician? That's gonna get us out of this mess?

    Most likely not, we are too far 'gone'. But then again, no 3rd party candidate would get us out of this mess either, as the legislature is a bigger problem than the president. Though with all the executive orders and such they are quickly trying to bypass the legislature in terms of damage they do.

    Since there is no real chance for any 3rd party, the best thing is to change them out every single time an election comes. Each and every one of them until we start finding people that actually deserve to be there.

    So since there is "no real chance" for a 3rd party, our best thing to do is carry on like normal and allow the government to grow even more distant from the People?

    I believe it has been said that the true definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

    What exactly is voting for a 3rd party doing to help things? How well has it been working out in terms of turning things around?

    Never letting one of the idiots from the big two serve more than 1 term is a quicker way to put them 'on notice' that the people care and are paying attention. Unfortunately the majority is to tied up in their own lives and doesn't really care.

    Yes, as I said, how's voting for that 3rd party been working out?

    Voting third party is a necessity. To "put them on notice" you have to threaten their ability to continually be elected and to gain power. There's no threat if you merely teeter-totter between the two. They just have to wait to the next election cycle and they'll get into power again. Like what we've been doing. If there's a problem with the system, the solution isn't to carry on with the problems. You must address the problems, and the real problem is true political competition within our system. The Republocrats are under no threat of losing power and as such, they no longer fear the people. You're "put them on notice" does nothing as we already see within the system proper.

    How's voting for that single party been working out?

    And are they shaking in their boots because of *all* the 3rd party people that have been elected?

    Sounds like you are the single party voter... I don't know which of the 3rd parties it is, but obviously you are voting for one party alone. Otherwise your talk would be nothing but hypocrisy. How many legislators or presidents have you and your single party managed to get elected?

    No, you have to aggregate votes to a high enough level to affect the elections. Which is a bit more work than your "hold the line" method

    I don't vote Republocrat, I'm not insane. I know voting for the status quo will only perpetuate the status quo.

    How about yourself? How much change have you affected with your single party voting? More controlled government? Government more responsible to the people? Government with proper spending and taxing? Government not expanding its powers against the individual? No you say? The difference here is that you're ok with the slow boat to hell and I'm fighting like hell to get us off that beaten path.
