129. This fight isnt between the D's and the R's as many posters here pretend.

It would certainly make life easier. And that's what we want, right? No thinking required, if there is a D behind the name then they can do no wrong. This fight is between the 1% and the 99% and many D's support the 1%.

The system is corrupted and not just the R part. Occupy recognizes this. Approx 75% of Occupy'ers claim to be independents. I bet they arent disgruntled Republicans. Whether it's president Obama's fault or not, there hasnt been any improvement in the corruption in Washington the DC in the last three years.

Some say the ship of state would sink faster if the R's were in control. Others think it doesnt matter if you cant swim.

I dont advocate voting third party, but I understand it. It's a protest vote against a rotten system. It's kind like Occupy.
