The Two Party System Sucks

So one of the few legislators I have a positive opinion of is leaving the Senate. Senator Evan Bayh is retiring after only 12 years. A centrist Democrat who has had his fill of the partisan stupidity that rules in Congress these days. While I can sympathize with his reason, I can only feel sad because one more reasonable voice is leaving.

Funny, but I used to consider myself a centrist Republican. Then when Ronnie ruined the Republican Party, I became a centrist Democrat. The spineless wimps from the Left proved they did not, could not, would not stand up and govern. So now I am just a centrist Independent who will dance on both Party's graves if the chance ever comes up.

I have given up thinking that the leaders of either the Democrats or the Republicans are interested in actually leading this country. They have both decided that their own political interests are more important than mine or the other citizens of this country. Both of them can go to Hell for all I care.

Later........................

Maybe it's time for a third party. How about the BoZone party? You could do no worse.

It will be moot for me within I year if things go well. I'll be a expat.

Don't let the door, etc. Too bad I can't say that about 99.7% of Congress. But for most Murkans, if there are more than two choices of anything, they get all sweaty and begin to convulse because all the unused synapses in the brain start firing, then it's a short circuit then all they are capable of is watching reality TV.

I'm feeling similarly these days. I know the Democrats are still better than the Republicans but why is it we can't get anything done? This country really does need a viable third party.
