    The government changed the name of the holiday in light of our shift to Socialism.

    Feeling sorry for yourself? Want government to take care of you? Obama will settle the score!


    He'll get back at all those awful people who make more money than you & just generally make your life impossible.

    Our two party political system is rapidly becoming a cancer that's destroying all that's made our country great and ignoring our freedom, financial well being, property rights and trampling numerous other guarantees by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. There's no question in my mind they have vastly overstepped anything envisioned by our Founding Fathers in the mad grab for money and power.

    So, Husky, are you advocating 10 parties or just 1?

    Good point. Most European countries have many more than 2 parties, and are far left of us. And the countries like China that only have 1...well, you know what sort of place you're dealing with there.


    Usually whenever I hear this plaintive cry about the 2-party system, it's from someone who goes on to postulate the following: 1) Power has corrupted the existing 2 parties, so therefore... 2) We need a 3rd party - which is somehow supposed to play on the same football field against the other 2, subject to the same corrupting pressures as the other 2 - and yet this party will somehow remain magically incorruptible.


    Yeah, the logic escapes me, too, laudable as their optimism is.

    A third party is not the answer, disregarding personal goals is. Realistically, it's not going to happen.
