Lets face it, Dems and Repubs are sold out to whatever monied interests bids the highest to gain favorable legislation, What end value difference do you see between them ?

    Seems to me that no matter which Party gets in office, the monied interests get their wishes because our politicians are so tied to those interests that they are powerless under this system to really change anything.

    Its not a conspiracy, its just the result of combined corporate power and greed from all angles thats created this dispicably crooked system and its crumbling. The status quo is represented as being a representative system, but in reality money runs it all while the Corporate Media plays to those major monied interests and we the public carp about the minor things effecting very little directional change. The best example is the current political sherade of choosing candidates for the next election, who really thinks that these candidates aren't primarily playing to their funding groups. It doesn't have to be this way,

    So is there enough difference between these two parties to keep this status quo system, or is it high time to push for a third party to shake this up for a major correction ? Any suggestions on how best to correct it, so that things are again a true voter representative government ?

    Or am I all wet and everything is cool as is ?

    i'm surprised there isn't like two pages of debate going on your thread. Maybe it's because your not attacking one specific group like dems or repubs. I'd be all for a third party as long as they'd be representing the middle and lower class. like someone who came from a middle class family, went to a community college, and didn't take huge donations from corporate america or if said person did, just used what he/she needed and then donated the rest somewhere else. so he or she wouldn't feel obligated to help said company.

    Well it is 'screwed' up, but we aren't totally fucked yet !!!

    A election financing system needs to be made law that outlaws direct giving which would put an end to votes being paid for.

    The democrats and the republicans are both corrupt and out only for their own self aggrandizement. They don't give a damn about the American people. Both political parties should be evicted from elected office. I see very little difference between either party.

    Simple; When you have met a politician, know that you have met a crook.

    If we the voters could force a change in Election funding, we could separate the giver from the receiver and then we might actually get more honest politicians.
