Hey what if democrats and republicans actually worked together. and Democrts just played the "good cop" act and the key is just to elect a republican into office once in a while to push the economic agenda towards shoving money upwards to rich people?

 

If not, I have NO idea why people vote republican anymore. They don't help the middle or lower class at all.

ohh now he remembers. lol

"U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Tuesday he now recalls a meeting in March 2016 that has come under scrutiny as part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into whether President Donald Trump's election campaign colluded with Russia.

In testimony before the U.S. House Judiciary Committee, Sessions acknowledged he attended a meeting with George Papadopoulos, a former campaign adviser who pleaded guilty last month to lying to the FBI.

According to court documents, Papadopoulos told the meeting he could help use his Russian connections to broker a meeting between then-candidate Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Sessions had previously testified to Congress he was unaware of communications between the campaign and Russian officials."

the perfect balance. I would too. I hope they don't run against each other and the same thing happens when Hilary and Bernie split the Democratc loyalty enough for a republican to win.

 

 

How about they run against each other, split the ticket during the primary, then one takes the other one as a VP in the general election.  Then you got the passion of both on the same ticket.

This would solve everything... they actually need to do it like the old days, the Winner is president, the loser becomes vice president.

The problem, which may or may not be both parties' fault is that Bill Clinton introduced the "neoliberal" centrist Democrat, and gradually kept on moving over to the right.

 

And he did because it helped him win states in middle-America, and that's how he became president. Now you could say that Reagan laid the groundwork for Clinton's strategy.

 

So the Republican party, in their view, cannot hold ideas that are close to the Democrats, so they started moving more and more to the right. But they kept on portraying Democrats as these super-socialist loving commies that are so liberal.

 

So now these parties have warped their way out of alignment, and their reputations don't even match up properly. Everything is out of whack.

Hill should have done that but bernabie was truly anti establishment and not wanted to lead the country by the powers that be.

Why can't America have more than 2 viable parties? Seems really silly to me. 

Because people are so brainwashed in this country, to either be democrat or republican, that there is no room for a third party to come along and balance the other two out.

In Canada we have 5 parties that all elect members to government.  The prominent two being the Liberals and Conservatives but the other 3, The NDP Bloq and Greens all elect members to Parliament.

Would be nice if we could have that many parties. But, again it goes back to people being brainwashed to be democrat or republican.

Isn't there a large group of so called "independent voters"?

Because that's the nature of a first past the post voting system.

Even though someone considers themselves independent, they only really have the two main parties to choose from.  Sure we have the Green Party and the Libertarian party, however, no one truly pays much attention to them.

I'm guessing a lot of people vote based on their temperament rather than being objectively informed.
