I'm seeing more and more that the Republicans and Democrats are
just two sides of a rotten coin -- a coin that I don't want -- not
heads or tails.

It's a shame the two party system works to exclude third parties.
Not that Perot is the best choice ever, but from what he has said --
even if he got the most votes, if he didn't get a majority, it would
go to congress to decide -- and who do you think they would elect?

Sorta makes anything other than a 2 party system likely to be
not representative of the will of the people. Poop.
