    I have been wondering this for a long time. How come we are limited to just two parties? I know there are more than that in this country, but how come we only ever hear about the two? This is really getting annoying. Some countries have quite a few to choose from. I personally think we need more choices. I know that some people like Ron Paul, but realistically how much of a chance does he have? You never hear about him on the radio or t.v. The only time I have seen him on t.v. was when he was on Leno. :censored: :censored: :mad: :mad: :noidea: :noidea: :doh: :doh:

    But we do!

    The Communist Party.
    The International Workers of the World (IWW)
    The Socialist Party
    The Green Party
    The Anarchist Party

    And they all are voting for Barry H. Obama.

    The Libertarian Party and the Nazis are voting for Ron Paul.

    My good man here is you a quick and conscience lesson in 101 politics
    the powers that be do not want any more competition
    by powers I mean the ones who hold the purse strings ie $$$$
    he with tha most toys wins
    Ol honest Abe and his crowd started a new party in tha 1858 and it was one that want big or central government( liberal/solcalist/communist) and were willing sacrifice as many as necessary of its people to have it
    so we have it in it almost full bloom. and not the original states rights government that our forefathers designed.
