We have a deformed political structure in the United States.
Every other country in the world has a respectably-sized communist and/or socialist party. Oh, they don't name them that anymore, but they are there.
We here in the US have witch-hunted these parties and philosophies off of the map. By doing so we have thrown our country open to the depredations of the oligarchs and the fascisti.
We had better start looking at a balance here folks. We are in the pickle we are in because we gutted the Left side of the political spectrum here in United States and let the political Right run without an organized opposition party to hound its every move.
Now, some of you will start screaming "look at Barack Obama"......Give me a break. He is as middle of the road and business leaning as his forerunner Bill Clinton, who in every other country in the world would have been forced into the conservative party.
So, think about it. Think about the whole government that you want. With checks and balances of political theory and a complete spectrum of thought.
If you just plug in the left side of the equation you will get the nanny state with all the sharp corners rounded off. If you just vote in the conservatives, you will have an economic free for all with you pockets being picked by unfettered business.
Of course, we could just hire George Bush and his buddies and get both.
