    How interesting that you highlight a distinction from crying wolf and calling others racist. I'll try to remember that you keep the two separate in your mind.

    So I asked this question because I have noticed that Republicans seem unwilling to even consider the other side. Democrats are just as bad. Some are absolutely terrible in fact, but in general this board is dominated by republicans presently, and when you get right down to it, republicans don't have an actual opinion. For example, they complain about healthcare... but that's it. They don't have a plan for it. Same for welfare... and if you ask them their plan for welfare... it's never to abolish welfare, which would be fiscally conservative. Few actually want that... which makes sense because nothing ever happens when republicans are in charge.

    Blatantly missing the point good job.
    Socialism is completely insane and communism is impossible.

    When the government chooses winners and losers you can bet your bottom dollar that the winner will be the government and everyone else will lose.

    Rants about the Democrats supposedly importing millions of EVIL "hispanics" to gain one party rule...and then wants one party rule himself.

    You aren't much different than what you perceive liberals to be, Brew.

    I would like a center-right party and a center-left party.

    Once we had this in the US, no longer.
    It has become obvious that the left can win elections, but they cannot govern.

    The difference being I'd like to achieve one party rule by winning on ideas and what's best for Western civilization, not by sabotaging the nation's demographics by importing the least skilled, least educated, most impoverished, and most dependent immigrants in the Western hemisphere.

    Just looking at presidencies, we swing back and forth pretty regularly. It's a good thing.
    This site tends to bring out the very worst in people.

    Same question to the Democrats. But obviously the Democrats are in power.

    Actually here in Georgia from the civil war until 2002 the Democrats were in charge. Sure there were a couple of presidential elections where Georgia went Republican, but until 2002 the Democrats controlled our state legislature from the civil War until that time. The same for our governorship, we didn't elect a Republican until 2002. Being the Republican Party didn't come into being until 1856, they had to wait 146 until the GOP finally came into power here.

    Our elections up until then, the only one that really counted was the Democratic Primaries. The general election was basically just a formality. I think pretty much everyone gets caught up in the presidential elections and don't pay much if any attention to who controls the state.
    This Reform Party member is extremely happy to see according to Gallup that independents now make up 44% of the electorate as of 8 Jan 2017. The two major parties continue to shrink as they leave more and more of middle America without a political home as one party moves farther left and the other right. The two major parties made up more than 80% of the electorate back in the 1940ís and 50ís. Today they are down to 53%.
