    America does not have open and honest elections.
    Every legal citizen has a right to run for public office. But the Democrats and Republicans have created draconian ballot access rules to keep out competition from third parties. Some states have fairly easy ballot access, but in others it is nearly impossible for a third party or an independent.

    Most of the time, neither the R or D upholds Constitutional principles. I can name only two parties that are worth voting for--Libertarian and Constitution.

Why would the Republicans ever prop up another viable conservative if you keep voting for liberals; you'll bash libs all day and then turn around and vote for one just because he has an "R" next to his name. A Republican liberal rat is still just as much of a liberal rat as a Democrat liberal. Both parties are taking us to Hell in hand basket; one is just taking us there a little bit slower.
    When the Republicans screw up, send them a message, "My vote could have been yours, but I voted (Libertarian or Constitution) because you have NOT upheld basic American freedom."

    Being for traditional marriage doesn't make you a hate monger (usually it is liberals who runs around calling the opposition hate mongers or bigots just because they oppose homosexual marriage)



    Easy. Watch this:

    Liberals suck the wrong end of the alimentary canal.

    Liberals are traitors.

    Liberals like being slaves.

    I can do this all day, really.

    That doesn't mean we would not have been better served if we'd managed to dump The Messiah.
    What would have McCain done that would have been better than Obama? McCain has a history of confirming liberal judges(Ruth Bader Gesburg), McCain has a history of trying to sell this country out to illegal immigration, McCain has jumped on the pussyfist terrorist sympathizing band wagon that simulated water drowning is torture, McCain is not as pro-2nd amendment as he leads people to believe and a couple of other liberal things.



    Because I have the mentality that knows how to use words to elicit irrational emotional responses from irrational emotional liberals as well as irrational emotion third party voters who think a single vote makes a difference anywhere.
    One vote may not make a difference but a whole bunch of angry voters does make a difference.


    See? I wasn't the only one to notice that The Messiah was a socialist.
    You seem to think McCain wasn't with this support for the bailouts.

    Got any proof that The Messiah isn't a Kenyan national? Then you're the only one.
    A certified copy of a birth certificate is more proof than any claims made by nuts. Do you have any real proof he is a Kenyan? Is there a born in Kenya birth certificate?

    You did? Amazing. How's that working out for you so far?
    McCain isn't in office. Perhaps republicans will quit trying to be democrats or democrat light after losing enough elections.

    Seems to me that what you're saying is that if I, myself, didn't vote for Bush, we'd be in the promised land already, without The Messiah, even.
    I was on that same democrats evil republicans good band wagon that you are on now when Bush ran for office twice. There is no shame in admitting that. Hopefully you'll jump off that band wagon to.



    I see you never bothered to study the impact third parties have had on the United States.
    I see you never bothered to look up party histories.The republican party was founded in 1854 and replaced the whig party as opposition to the democrat party.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I think McCain would not have nominated racist judges.

    Oh. You forgot that, huh?

    At barest minimum it makes one a busy-body, from which all the evils of government can find their roots.

    Everyone votes for judges in the Senate.

    Nominating them is different. Chances are 100% that The Messiah is going to saddle us with the worst sort of activist liberal/socialist trash judges he can find. Chances are less that McCain would have.

    Yeah, you and your friends sure turned things around, didn't they?

    You seem to think you know what I think.

    At the most, you can see what I write, which offers nothing more than a silhouette of my thoughts.

    You've never seen a certified copy of The Kenyan's birth certificate.

    That's nice. I can't recall saying "Republicans good". In fact, I can't ever recall saying "Republicans are good", even.

    I'm a Libertarian. Been one for a long time now.

    Wow. Who'd have thought of looking up history? What a concept. Did you notice that the new GOP had a large following supporting them? Which third party today has a large following? Answer: not a one.

    Look up Teddy Roosevelt. His interference as a third party candidate enabled the worst president ever to assume his throne.
