I get pissed off at political pundits who complain about the status quo, calling themselves Libertarians or Independents, but then intimate that voting for such candidates only helps the liberals by siphoning votes away from the conservatives.

It's that type of thinking that perpetuates a sh*tty 2-party system.

Normally I'm against the whole two party "who's side are you on" bullsh*t but I honestly feel the right has just swayed things so out of proportions with this lunacy ladled Trump presidency that we need to get the bar back reading zero for a while and that unfortunately requires quite a bit of leftist band aid boo boo kissing and repair.

What voter suppression? In states that require ID's to vote, they provide free state-issued photo ID's for such purposes.

If the Republicans are for "smaller government" with less authoritarian oversight, I haven't seen proof of that. It seems to me that they want to get in everyone's business, all the time.

Just wait until we have Oprah, Kanye and The Rock running. You think this presidency is a joke?

I'm all for doing away with political parties altogether.

I actually kind of agree with you. Maybe it'll happen one day. I at least hope for some actual discretion and not just blind party loyalty.

Our government and society will never be great until we reform the monetary system.

I know that I harp on this all the time, but no one listens or pays attention, so I'm gonna keep doing it.

Say that a country wants to put $1 BILLION into circulation. Well, they decided to let a privately owned, non-government institution print that $1 BILLION. Does that privately-owned, non-government institution just give the money to the country? NO! They lend it to them, at interest, say 5% [or any arbitrary number].

So, there is now $1 BILLION in circulation, but that country is now in debt, owing $1,050,000,000.

It is IMPOSSIBLE for that country to pay the money back, because that amount of money doesn't exist!

How is this beneficial to a nation?

Prove me wrong.
