“I think it is overly simplistic to assume that third party candidates are going to make any difference. It's easy to say, "oh yeah, we need to vote for third party candidates," and while it might be a good idea, and can't hurt, and third party candidates should be afforded more of a voice, they aren't some sort of magic bullet that are going to solve all of our woes. By the way, I voted for Ralph Nader. Were you old enough to vote then?”

NoCorporatePersonhood on Aug 17, 2013 at 04:39:35

“In my life I have voted for Perot and Nader twice.  I skipped the rest. Shame on me but I got discouraged.

I disagree with you though.  The stranglehold the two party system has on us is the biggest problem we face and for now insurmountable.   I think it will take someone either rich or famous who can get past the media blackouts to have any chance.”

“Exactly, we keep sending the Egyptian government money, all while people can't get jobs here, or the ones who have jobs can't afford to buy a home for their families and we are sending money all over god's green earth, and the gov won't do sh$ t for it's own people.

“Oh, good point. I didn't think about that, but I think that too is inevitable. I guess nothing will get done on either side for two more years, and then we can all get excited for the next election, and we can whip ourselves up into a frenzy, and then after the election, regardless of who wins, see four more years go by without absolutely nothing changing or improving. Wow, I have just overwhelmed myself with optimism.”

“Actually, he doesn't whine about it, but he should. He should take a much tougher stance against the republican obstructionism. It would make no difference what he dose or how he does it, the republican party will turn their backs. Their only interest is trying to ruin his reputation.”

WillSantos on Jul 9, 2013 at 14:37:13

“What nonsense. Every president in US history has faced an opposition party. Obama simply lacks the negotiating skills necessary to work with those who hold other opinions. He shoved Obamacare down the throats of all Americans using an underhanded reconciliation tactic and did so without a single republican vote. Once you act so rigidly partisan, you lose the right to whine about opposition. His rigid ideological actions gave rise to the momentum of the tea party. He is the tea party's daddy.”

“Umm, that is only partially true. This was not his first choice, and only resulted when congress failed to act, and the so-called super committee failed to reach a budget deal. The real cause of the sequestration was republican obstructionism and their refusal to compromise. They even went back on their own "grand bargain." I think twice. I'm not saying everything on wikipedia is totally accurate, but here is a quick summary:

On August 2, 2011, President Obama signed the Budget Control Act of 2011 as part of an agreement with Congress to resolve the debt-ceiling crisis. The Act provided for a Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction (the "super committee") to produce legislation by late November that would decrease the deficit by $1.2 trillion over ten years. When the super committee failed to act,[8] another part of the BCA went into effect. This directed automatic across-the-board cuts (known as "sequestrations") split evenly between defense and domestic spending, beginning on January 2, 2013.

It is seriously weak to blame Obama without mentioning the republican contribution to the problem. The fact of the matter is, congress is worthless, and the republican party would rather shaft American than work with Obama. There whole mission has been to malign Obama and everything he proposes or does. Everybody knows this to be the case.”

WillSantos on Jul 9, 2013 at 14:11:35

“Obama and Congress are worthless. Obama should lead instead of constantly whining about opposition.”

Now the tyrannical government is spying on every American.”

“This is not about national security - it's about industrial espionage! We have
run down our educational system to the point that we hardly produce any American
scientist, engineers etc. Now we have to steel information from the Germans -
or what do think it means when we steal about 500 million communications
a month from Germans, mostly in the southern region where most of Germany's
industry is located and naturally Frankfurt, the seat of the European Central Bank.”

“So, let me get this straight. Every American who wants to commit some sort of felony should just be able to seek asylum somewhere else and claim refugee status? As far as I am concerned, he committed treason, and has no right to escape the consequences.”

“That depends on the felony. Since when was calling out your own government for being corrupt a felony?
Last I checked, this wasn't Syria, Lybia, Egypt or even nazi Germany.
Unless things have changed since then and the people are to dense to see otherwise.”

“If a Russian intelligence worker had exposed Russia's spying on the entire world including it's own citizens the US would grant that person political asylum in an instant.
The US government would issue statement after statement denouncing Russian spying on the world.
All those calling Snowden a criminal would call that other person a courageous and selfless freedom fighter.
And everyone knows this is true, everyone in the world.”
