    Sorry you put it like this no "violence, racism, vulgarity, profanity, all caps, or discourteous behavior" This is the would we live in so I may be the only one to post here. Or you could let people post the truth. and that well include most all of what you wont tolerate. thanks and have a good day

  2. This administration may very well be the most transparent liars in history.

  3. Um, Roger, what exactly interferes with your ability to post "the truth" (as you see it)?

    What world you choose to "live in" is a choice, not an obligation. If you don't like the one you're occupying, set about changing locations. You aren't a victim.

    How you express your views is also a choice. If you cannot express them without resorting to thuggish language, it's likely your chief limitation is the quality of your thoughts. Or — more likely — someone else's thoughts echoing down a rain-barrel.

  4. So, it used to be on the Change.gov website? But they changed it! So, we got change. What I wanna know is, where's the HOPE?

    The only way this country has a chance of surviving as a civilized republic is if the so-called two party system is abandoned by the voters, and only independent or third party candidates are elected to office. Right now, if two bums are nominated by the party bosses for every election we can only have a bum in the White House and nothing but bums in Congress.

  6. chvietvet is right. We need to change the domination of the two parties. One suggestion is to look at Australia's preferential voting system which eliminates the "don't throw your vote away" mentality in theat every single vote counts in the final tally. It also makes primary elections unnecessary isnce several candidates from one party or ideology can run in the election and the voter's preference is always taken into account. This saves the cost of the primaries as well as preventing the party leaders from inerfering with the publics choice of candidate. That's why Australia has several parties in every election and why many independents are elected resulting in coalition governments.
