    Republicans are better than Democrats for the most part, but they are far from perfect.

    Of any given party, the LIBERTARIANS and people with a libertarian bent (like Ron Paul) by far have the best records. Ron Paul's record is darn near perfect. That's why I admire him so much. Even most libertarians fall short of Ron.

    It is depressing that nearly all of our country's leaders lack the very basics of economics and keep passing ridiculous laws that strangle our economy.

    In truth, both look out for themselves, and the people giving them campaign money.

    This time around, the Democrats are doing what they think is best, with a lot of arrogance. The Republicans are trying to block everything to the point of hyperpartisanship. Basically, both parties suck.

    That's an utterly ridiculous thing to say.

    In case anyone is wondering, here's a story about the fifty richest members of Congress. It's almost completely even (23 Dems, 27 GOP).

    They both suck but who supports the poor people more? Who supports much needed social programs and equal right issues best? That would be the Democrats.

    There is a difference between supporting, and providing.

    The problem is that the libertarian philosophy literally *is* merely the basics of economics. It's the philosophy for people who took Econ 101 when they were freshmen, thought they understood the market system perfectly because they knew how to draw a demand curve, and never took another econ class after that.

    The real world is a bit more complex than that, and can't be so easily boiled down into rules like "Government intervention = Bad." I have a very solid economics background, and let me tell you that a lot of those laws you consider ridiculous actually help the economy, whereas Ronpaultopia would cause a lot of problems.

    Both the parties are very competent at being corrupt.
