t'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?

This is a quote from Kruschev.
above is quoted out of context from earlier messages...

I really don't see how you can say that the two parties are the same.
This is an example of the deadly cynicism that has infected the "progressives"
in this society.

The drop out mentality has gotten us where? Out.

And left it to whomever to address the ongoing development of the society.

Down with cynicism. Up with People. Use the tools at hand. The Demo party
is a better tool for what I want to see happen, given the realities of
American culture today. I will lean into it, and lend my weight to tilt it
in the direction I believe it should go.

Certainly, we can't expect the system to ALREADY be what we want it to be!
What has ever changed overnight?

Play for Peace!
