Ummm, the two parties work together

The entire 2012 presidential campaign was scripted years ago.

Both Obama and Romney will do the same things in office. They'll just talk raise funds from different groups.

Like arms dealers setting up a war and selling to both sides, the ruling class sets up wave after wave of political battles to tick off people enough to make donations, buy political books, etc.

Also, the illusion of voting makes us think we have a say in the running of our nation. That prevents us from getting mad enough to actually threaten the ruling class's power. It keeps us more productive...keeping tax revenues constant and optimized.
