    Politicians Suck

    Last election I got upset about Barack Obama, and I'm willing to admit I overdramatized, and that he's not as bad as I thought he would.  He's still a politician, and I think all the successful ones leave a stink behind them wherever they go.  That includes Sarah Palin, the...

    Party System

    I truly believe the party system is the major problem we have in elections.  Both candidates speak of change, but since everyone votes along party lines in the senate and congress most of the time....what can actually change?  Unless we can convince our politicians that...

    Lynch Mobs Make Me Nervous

    Are people at home actually getting charged up from watching McCain's recent rallies? Whenever he mentions Obama, people in the crowd shout out things like 'terrorist!', 'socialist!', 'Muslim!', and so forth. These blind followers of McCain seem so fanatical to me that torches...

    Divided

    I don't talk about politics, but I'm going to say something loud - and on the internet - that I wish I could tell everyone. I wish I could speak the words, grab the word bubble, and smash it over everyone's head. 1. Vote. Everyone. You have to vote. If you don't, and you dare to...

    Why

    I don't hate American politics in itself - I hate the way the intransigence and lack of willingness to work together that we see in America has infected Australian politics

    Republicans Vs Democrats Tenants

    I hate American politics. Pat Buchanan once said in an article he wrote "Why should China follow us?" He's right. We've become a country where winning as part of a team is so important than winning as a whole. We forgot why we started playing our political game to begin with...

    Political Party'S Government Shutdown

    I just want to clear something up for all the people who are "republicans" and "democrats". I am a "liberal" but not exactly what the labeling on the word is. The two party system that we have currently flawed. It's basically just the two going back and forth over bullshit. The...
