The right wing success story.They have succeeded in achieving minority rule by electing the five man rt wing justices, their gerrymandering, corporations being looked at as persons, voter suppression, and unlimited spending by the wealthy for campaigns.

Well if we were to have more options politically then most likely things like gerrymandering, voter suppression, media bias and the attacking of our citizens for not falling into a party line might just cease or at least become harder to achieve.

I’ve witnessed the corrupt behavior of both parties so I don’t feel sympathy for one side or the other.
And sadly y’all are both so ignorant that you’ve failed to acknowledge that with both major parties combined had less than half of this nations eligible voters actually turn out.

So republicans and democrats have it wrong and their fighting over the scraps

What did you do to correct the situation. It is easy to criticise.Why didn't you start a third or forth party
?If yoiu have the answer why are you keeping it to yourself?Where is the action?

@Marine I don’t belong to any party never have never will I vote for people based upon their individual merits as well as their intentions.

I’ve contributed time, and money to several candidates in the past 30 years. I’ve gone to and openly discussed issues with candidates from all parties running for certain offices and then relayed their answers to public forums.
I have and still reach out and if given the opportunity communicate both issues and solutions.

As far as starting a new party that would be completely ineffective due the fact that there’s nearly a hundred tiny individual parties that would benefit from merging but non of that still matters as long as when there’s political presidential debates we will only be allowed to see one democrat and one republican on the stage.

It will take what we potentially have at this moment and that is for the two parties to splinter and as in the democrats case the formation of either a progressive or socialist Democratic Party would have to form and then merge with other parties like the green, coffee and so on.

And on the republican side I see libertarians splitting the ranks as well as a resurgence of the tea party but rebranded.

And I don’t keep anything to myself I share it everyone that I can but on many different levels.

I am just one person and I’d love to run for office but I won’t for several reasons some very legitimate and others because society has been conditioned to not accept that we need political and social compromise and the media would most treat me like some kook or turn the power off every time I’d make a valid point.

Nonetheless we need to adopt an ideology that this is OUR country meaning the citizens not The politicians, corporations, foreign interests or the media.

That no matter what your race, social, economic, religious belief, sexual orientation or even acceptance of of this country is it belongs to you and we need to own it again.
We need cross table conferences where all of the segments of society can sit down and hopefully at least identify with each a little more at the end as well as compromise on solutions to problems that we all face and afterwards confront our political leaders to adopt these solutions.

There that’s what I got and if it’s not enough then give me some ideas and we’ll see where it can go

@Alshaytan [responding as I read] With this being your opportunity ‘to reach out,’ statements like “sadly y’all are both so ignorant that you’ve failed to acknowledge that with both major parties combined had less than half of this nations eligible voters actually turn out.” ..is a poor example of your capabilities…

I’ve watched several ‘lesser party’ candidates for president on the debate stage, they can get time if their polling shows they’ve some credible numbers, otherwise, the networks aren’t about to allow “nearly a hundred tiny individual parties” to eat up their time, or ours..

In a Parliamentary System, coalitions of smaller parties work, but not in a winner-take-all system like ours. Both parties are painfully aware of what happens when ‘their votes’ are split, they lose. Look how the R’s rallied around the most incompetent contender their party’s ever produced (least in my lifetime), did they split? Nope, they ‘won.’

...further into your desires ..which viable party comes close to, if not embraces them all..? No, that party didn’t give us Bernie, but he had sense enough to know better than to split off and run by himself. Politics is rough.. But Hillary'd earned it, and would have been a very solid and moderately progressive president … with her supreme court justice picks allowing this nation to progress toward your, and Bernie's - and my goals (for the most part).

We need cross table conferences where all of the segments of society can sit down and hopefully at least identify with each a little more at the end as well as compromise on solutions to problems that we all face and afterwards confront our political leaders to adopt these solutions.” - Yes!

The other tuff part of politics is the fact it brings out the most passionate among us. Long ‘working the Democrats booth’ at various town celebrations ..I’d usually wander over to the R’s booth … once saying, ‘though we appear to be on opposite sides.. I think we’ve ultimately more in common than the folks who simply pass us by, we care.’ They’d smile, I’d look over their shit ..then head home ~

Hey, thanks for your clarifications.

@Alshaytan I agree with everything you have said so we aren't far apert afterall. Have a nice day.

It’s a long-term, incremental & ongoing project, and they are in constant campaign mode…

Eventually, the majority has ‘enough,’ votes in a Democrat for president, the Democrat claws us to a safer place ..the nation goes complacent, even begins to believe the constant Republican propaganda … as all problems are blamed on ‘the democratic president,’ runs a nut against them - and gets this.

How far will we fall beyond the rest of humanity before we take this nation back..?

That requires equality to be given and reinforced by education.

No argument here.

Unless the Democrats can take back both house and senate and the presidency we will be govern by this minority for ma very long time.

But even if they do...Fox News will still blast lying scare stories all day etc. Are there really enough dems with the strength to say: nope - not having this shit any more?

@Gooniesnvrdie Easy to criticise where is your answer?What have you done to change the program? i haven't seen you leading any action.
