Yes, it sure seems like that... both seem to attract more than their
fair share of corrupt dimwits who like nothing better than to overtax,
overspend, pass ridiculous laws, line their own pockets and do
political favors for $pecial interest$, etc.

I doubt that either party truly represents what most American citizens
want, particularly those citizens who bother to engage in an activity
known as thinking. Most people, it appears, are usually stuck with
making a choice between two undesirable candidates, and all they can
do is vote for whomever appears to be the lesser of two evils.

Did you ever consider that one can be for huge tax cuts and huge
spending cuts, against the war against Iraq, for big cars if people
want them (if overpopulation wasn't the problem it is, big cars
wouldn't be a problem at all... let the people with huge families be
the ones to cut back on energy usage; besides, selling people new cars
every year or three is more harmful to the environment than keeping
large old cars for many years), for a child tax (to stop
overpopulation), against reckless environmental destruction, against
needless government regulations and bureaucracy, for a ban on most new
land development, for the separation of church and state, for freedom
of speech, for property rights (but opposed to land development),
against political correctness, for more use of alternative energy
sources, etc? The point that I'm trying to make is that political
parties don't represent thinking individuals who can have different
views on different issues, whatever their views are. Non-thinking
'droids just go along with what some political party stands for on all
of the so-called "issues." Hence, the average supporters of both
parties are intellectually equivalent, are they not?

Now, can you stop making stupid remarks? ;-)
