Since 1852 the two major political parties in the United States have been the Republican Party and the Democratic Party. The only difference between the two is the party that is not in office has ways of stealing your money that the party in office hasn’t thought of yet. At least that is how I look at it.
The Republicans bash the Democrats and the Democrats bash the Republicans. This gubernatorial year is no different. According to some of the political ads, we have witches, Marxist, crooks, and liars running for office.
I have often wondered why we are tied to just two choices during each election year. What kind of “Freedom of Choice” is that? Then I found out that we have more than two choices.
We have two parties with federal representation, three minor parties, twenty five micro parties and regional state political parties.
But, thanks to the Electoral College a Third Party Candidate will never become president considering that the majority of the House and Senate are Democratic and Republican. So, obtaining the required 270 Electoral College votes needed to win would be impossible. The Electoral College was not set up to consider Third Party Candidates.
So, unless some radical changes are made in our political arena, we will remain stuck with voting either Democratic, Republican or stay home. I can’t see what difference it will make how you vote. One last parting thought. Where do you think all of that money comes from to support the candidates? In other words, you scratch my back and I will scratch yours Corporate America.
