Anyone want to talk about political parties in the U.S.A.?

If you don’t want this thread to get locked you need to specify the topic.

Sure.

Political parties need to be dropped. Now. America is being torn apart by the mindless sheep who follow one side or the other, literally dividing the country and creating counterproductive and wasteful policies. No one votes based on a candidate’s merit, they just pick whoever is in their party. For those who do not identify with either candidate, we’re forced to pick the best of the worst because any vote going to a non Democratic/Republican candidate is the exact same as throwing it down the toilet.

That has really nothing to do with parties (and ignores all of the things that political parties actually do). Your ire is with winner-take-all elections that cause a two-party structure to emerge, not the actual existence of parties. The binary division doesn’t exist in proportional elections, yet those proportional elections are full of political parties.

For those who do not identify with either candidate, we’re forced to pick the best of the worst because any vote going to a non Democratic/Republican candidate is the exact same as throwing it down the toilet.

Your vote will never matter in a Presidential election – you mine as well vote your conscious because the plot of Swing Vote will never apply to you. Ever.

Let me specify. Are you a Democrat or Republican, if you are either, and why?

I dislike the Republican Party because it is full of insane religious conservative anti-science assholes. I dislike the Democratic Party because they are, economically, on the left.

I don’t identify with eiither party, overly liberal people are incredibly annoying eco-terrorists and overly conservative people are religious nuts who deny evolution, extremism is never good. The people of America need to be responsible and vote for an independent party to end the bipartisan era, every election the vote is between two assholes and you must decide who is less of an asshole. If enough people vote an independent into contention then we will be given more of a choice. If the question is “Red or Blue”, then the answer is blue. Most republicans should not be given an ounce of power even though their opponents are awful choices as well. Obama’s legacy as an awful president was solidified when Snowden blew the whistle on the NSA, but I maintain that he would be a better president than Mcain or Romney.

I personally am a Republican the Democrats spend too much money for unimportant things in my humble opinion. Truly, I dislike that presidents can be re-elected since they often will campaign too much during their presidency. Don’t complain too much, since we don’t have an autocratic government that oppresses the population like China does.

How the Democrats spend so much and are able to be labeled “eco-terrorists” as opposed to more “stingy” Republicans mystifies me.

Political parties are stupid.

If you cant think for yourself and instead blindly follow one of two ideologies that matter, you arent a true human and should be purged.

discuss

You said discuss. What I believe is that for humanity to accomplish everything people must make compromises and unite, and those compromising unions are political parties. Of course people think for themselves, but in order for their voice to matter they must not be a stickler for every single detail.
Finally, I disagree with the use of insults in arguments. I believe that God made every human equal and these “not true humans” are as much of a human as you are.
How about that?

Hey urine420, can I make a new forum and we discuss this matter over there? I’d love to further discuss the matter, but not on my pretty secular “Political Parties” forum. Please respond.

Nah I’m cool. Maybe you should avoid bringing G-d into topics where you’d rather he/she/it was not discussed tho.

Fair point. If you want I could make the forum, but it doesn’t seem to be that way. Just asking, why did u do G-d instead of God?

I also love how this thread is totally off-topic and mostly between us two.

Ok. Who is Debs, though?

American Socialist around the turn of the century through WWI.

On topic: Debs was the president that the us needed, shame y’all never got him

Clearly a dark point in American history.

Oh. A socialist you say?

Who would be for it? Issendirf is a libertarian? I’m confused.
