The Republicans and the Democrats are essentially the same. Both support the same system, both use the same tactics. Just like Labour and the Conservatives over here in the UK. The whole 2 party system is just a spectacle to distract people from the fact that whoever you vote for, the capitalist system wins. The rich get richer, the poor get poorer. With the Republicans/Tories it's pretty open. They're evil and everyone knows it. But the Democrats/Labour party do all the same shit, they're just more cautious and less honest about it. It's just a two headed dictatorship. Do you want Bad, or do you want Worse? Throw your piece of paper with a cross into the mix and maybe the guy you like will win so he can go back on all the policies that made you vote for him in the first place. When people stop obsessing over the personal lives of candidates and the so called 'different policies' of each party, and realise that their country's situation stays pretty much the same no matter who's in office, maybe we can get something done. But the electoral system, as it stands today, will never make real changes, because it is not intended to. It's a cliche, but it's true-if voting changed anything, they'd make it illegal.
