    There are more than two parties but most of our thinking is two dimensional. For example, how many people here have ever voted for a Green party candidate?

    I don't believe most peoples thinking is two dimensional. IMO the "options" are 2 dimensional. I'm in agreement with you there are more than 2 parties. But do you seriously think the green party can be taken seriously? How does the green party differ from all other 3rd parties who've come before this? Also I'm speaking on presidential elections. Who is the green party candidate for president?

    The video I posted shows how these 2 so called major parties are actually one in the same.

    Thanx

    There is no need for assimilation or integration, for working class people regardless of race or ethnicity, to create a People's Agenda, dealing with living wage issues, and union concerns, and environmental protection, funded by the Masses not the A... well, the one percent or Wall street corporatocracy, and a third party can easily be formed

    I hear you but I look at it this way. Knowing that four more years of Obama may result in further militarization of Africa do I vote my conscience or do I vote for an illusion of hope for a second time around?

    You make it sound so easy. A third party have been "formed" over and over and over again. Somehow it NEVER gets any steam. You don't think that's an accident or coincidental do you? Again I'm speaking on presidential elections

    There's a lot more than just two political parties in America. Unfortunately, the way things are set up is completely broken. Money decides who gets to be heard and who gets to run. Hell, Colbert formed a SuperPAC and will probably try to run for president just to show how broken things are haha.

    Yes there are. I was referring to the fact a 3rd party will never we introduced into the presidential election seriously.

    BINGO! It still takes a little more than money though, because if that was the case bill gates or saudi arabia would be in charge.

    Broken? You don't seriously believe that. It's actually running exactly they way it was intended.

    If they've been on the ticket, they were taken seriously enough. There are numerous political parties that can't even get that far.

    Bill Gates wouldn't be a bad choice. He's given away almost half his personal wealth and saved millions of lives. He has the resources to run, and to possibly land on a ticket, but American's political climate pretty much hates anything that's mildly progressive or socialist.

    Saudi Arabia's brand is already represented in the form of rich conservative Texans. We've had quite a long string of those in politics.

    Broken things can be fixed if we try.

    Make what sound easy? If a house is on fire, even those who dont like each other will help to put it out

    The occupy movements across the nation have many more Black folks involved then the TV camers show.

    The election of Obama by whites , the ascendency of Cain as a conservative, shows there are things folks will temporarily let go of their racial differences for.

    Working class America has never been messed over like this since the time of the robber barrons.
    Factory towns have been turned into wastelands, full of unemployed and angry people, who dont have the loan money (now that bailed out banks are not giving credit to even AAA rated customers) to start small businesses to compete with the big chain stores that monopolize.
