They Aren’t “Third Parties” … They Are SECOND Parties, Since the GOP and Dems Act as ONE Party On The Core Issues


The Republican and Democratic candidates have become incredibly similar in their core agendas . Seethisthisthisthis, thisthisthis.    They are virtually indistinguishable on warjobsfreedoms andfavoring fatcats instead of the little guy.

Tony Blizzard hits the nail on the head, writing:

For the next elections quit referring to third parties. Call them – properly so – second parties, explaining that the two top parties are in reality one. Owned by the same money with tweedle dee, tweedle dumb candidates prostituted to that money.

The reason neither of them campaigns on [real] issues is that both back the same agendas of their owners, the money interests. THEY ARE ONE. TREAT THEM SO IN PRINT.

    A hopeful takeaway,

    A well connected Plutocrat, unwilling to disclose his tax returns, whom made fortunes at the expense of working Americans yet had the wherewithal to call them “victims” could not brainwash enough of those “victims” despite astronomical amounts of money poured into propaganda ads.

    Same beast, really? Where’s the anti-science wing of the Dems that believes the earth is 8000 yrs old and that you can put unlimited amounts of CO2in the air and that women’s bodies have a way of dealing with rape . . . where’s the racist wing of the Democratic Party, . . . where the wing of the Democratic party that thinks national disasters ought to left to the states, where’s there a Dem. Grover Norquist?

    It’s true that in the arena of corporate monied interests there is a disgusting similarity but one side isn’t even embarrassed by it. It does not serve our national interests for American to believe another falsehood – the parties are the same.

    @ romerjt –

    Here is the “racist wing of the Democratic Party” http://bitly.com/PDAOfC

    Back in the day, when Dems were ranting over Bush’s “decider” and WMD’s and the Dixie Chicks were calling him a traitor, I was angry over the stereotyping of right wing ideology.

    In the last four years, I have watched the GOP not only live up to that stereotype, but go full tilt bat-shit-crazy extreme.

    I take issue with much of the Dem ideology, the tendency to cater to mediocrity, the Nanny-State of political correctness and government getting into my personal life.

    That said, this takes priority for me -

    “It’s true that in the arena of corporate monied interests there is a disgusting similarity but one side isn’t even embarrassed by it. … ”

    While it’s true both parties participate, only one is attempting to brainwash the public with the idea that Bribery is good, that “corporations are people”, “money is speech”, that swindling millions of their net worth is “success”…and taxing them after the fact is prohibitive to that “success”, that it’s “socialism”.

    Of course because in fact this election reflects the battle between the old solid Democratic southern wing of the Party that left vs the reformed Democrats. The South once the sold Democrat conservative base went Republican so what we are seeing today is not a traditional political contest between Republicans and Democrats rather a fight between two wings of the Democrat Party and on a National level the reform wing is clearly winning.
    The Republican Party may at some point either become a minority bible belt party or seek to re brand itself dropping the social conservatives and attempt to build its base with independents and moderate Democrats. Calif once a solid Republican state is probably a model for what the GOP can expect if it continues along its current political path.

    To continue the observation that overanout made about California. We easily forget our political history, California was, not too long ago, one of the states that Republicans could, if not automatically count on, but expect to to win a number of times.

    California voted Republican nationally 9 out 10 times from 1952-1988. Only Johnson was able to carry the state in 1964. Since then, the Democrats have won every every national election.
    The state routinely split its two senators between the major parties, until 1992. Since then, no Republican has managed to get elected – even despite the fact that Barbara Boxer, the junior Senator, has always been regarded as one of the most vulnerable incumbents of either party.
    California since 1952 has elected 5 Republican Governors, and 4 Democrats. Evenly since 1992, which suggests that Republicans can do reasonably well, if they nominate the right candidate.
    The Republicans started losing control of the State Legislature beginning in the 1960′s, but still were competitive until the mid-1990′s. Now they are in danger of becoming an completely inconsequential party. The same holds true for the state’s Congressional Representatives.

    The irony isn’t that, contrary to some disbelief by the rest of the country, that California has noticeably become more liberal (poll after poll indicated otherwise), but that, especially on the state level, the Republicans became too conservative for the majority of people.

    Writing off the largest state in the Union, with more electoral votes than all of the Great Plains and Rocky Mountain states combined, has to be one of the largest strategic errors that a major party has committed.
