Partisanship...Does it truly matter?

Democrats this, Republicans that, who really cares? Are we so segregated that we must label our views as one or the other. I beg to differ. I don't think that we, as Americans, really care. Sure we have our bias toward one thing or the other, but are our parties truly all encompassing? They are one in the same.

They both lie to US. They both cover each others mistakes, since, in turn, they affect the guy in the office next door. Their major contributors are both K Street and corporate guilt. They are both evil. Two heads of the same bird. Every election can be broken down to this one all compromising question. Who is lying to me better than the rest? That is who gets the vote. The best Liar. That's completely sad and can only lead to voter apathy. That it has. Our current politicians stand for the same. That is the status quo. Congressional privilege and power. They might have had brighter and more enlightened ideas, but Washington has overcame them. Both parties are helping carry the same basket and we, the American citizens,are in it.

Lobbyists and politicians alike, I hope you sleep well at night knowing you are participating in a scheme of global graft and corruption. Selling out your common citizens for the benefits of a company that could care less about your family or mine. I remember a time when the new trend was "voting your conscious". Where is it now. That nation knows. We are not FOX followers or CNN junkies, we are the public. Voices unheard. Dreams Placated. Unrepresented by our elected officials, We demand and need a change.

Republican, Democrat, Independent, or other...we are all the same. The "base" does not speak for us. For our ideas and concerns would lead toward progress. Yet, progress is brought to a creep. Not by us, but by them. Less than 1000 people thwart our future and waste our hard earned money. They are all to blame. Once again, we are left with one choice. Who is lying to me better than the rest?

Same Players. Different Scandal.
