Two-party system will continue to fail us

Now that the so-called fiscal cliff has passed and our representatives continue to stumble, it is proof enough to this observer that the Democratic-Republican two-party system has failed America.

In my opinion, what failed all of us is the lack of thinking outside the box for real solutions. As one letter writer pointed out succinctly, politics is the art of compromise. This Congress will never reach any agreement suitable to all because of the divide in our nation and the influence of moneyed interests, especially “defense lobby,” or more appropriately, the perpetual war lobby.

I commend Charlie Calisher’s opinion piece of Jan. 3. Republicans have collectively made themselves “terrorists” because the Republican leadership has led us to believe that perpetual war will provide national security. Ron Paul was responsible to say he was trying to save the Republican party from itself. Paul and Libertarians have consistently advocated against perpetual war. They are not tied into “moneyed interests.” The Green Party, too, had a platform against perpetual war and for good stewardship of the land and our resources. It was telling how the Democrats and the Republicans refused to allow Libertarian and Green Party candidates to participate in the recent presidential debates. It’s not in the interest of the one party, excuse me, “two-party,” system to allow any talk of ending perpetual war.

There Must Be Something Wrong With Me

because I continuously hear people here talk about the GOP the RNC and Democrats vs. Republicans like they believe that if you just try hard enough, infiltrate good enough and fight long enough then the true and good side will prevail. I guess what's wrong with me is that I honestly don't think any of that matters. I honestly believe that the whole left/right show is just that, A SHOW. One to keep us divided, keep us playing by "their" rules and acting likes fools while they sit in the same rooms together laughing at how gullible we are for buying their shit. What do you folks here posting all about who to vote for, how to take over etc know that I don't? I personally think it's going to take an entire paradigm shift to change anything.

skippy

I don't agree

I agree that the political system is failing, but it's not an accident. It's by design.

We are taking the GOP.

We are the change we want to see.

My friend

You are doing a blessed work working within the corrupt GOP.

My hat is off to you.
This wine is to you!

We need more of you!!!

P.S just wrote a poem you might want to have a look at:

(((((((((((LL))))))))))))

I hope that by the end of the month, I'm going to have some very exciting and wonderful news.

As bad as the GOP is.. it's much smaller a arena than the vast wide open of Indy/third party.

I really really believe Ron Paul is spot on with his idea of us taking the GOP. I'm seeing it materialize. I have no doubt we ARE the future and it's going to be VERY VERY GOOD.

I'm very excited and hopefull.

I understand why and how you FEEL, but I also KNOW from what I am experiencing.. we will beat them at their own game without having to lie, cheat and steal.

(((((((((((dducks))))))))))

I'm with Ron Paul when I say

It would be nice if we at least had a second party.
