    He pretty much sums up why we will never have a real 3rd party in this Country. It's all about the $$$$

    And this is why in 10-20 years these contentious arguments will continue, and nothing will get done inside of the beltway.. the status quo works well for the real powers in this country.

    I'm sure you have noticed the lack of comments from Obama and the GOP about finance campaign reform. The Dems & Republicans love the status quo when it comes to raising cash.

    PACS & Super PAC's are ridiculous. Stephen Colbert has a PAC and has applied for a Super PAC. A comedian has a PAC.......Comical.

    The tea party movement isn't dead, but has faced the things the article stated. That said, the point that its all but impossible to really tear down the status quo is valid. But we have to keep charging that windmill. Persistence is the key.

    Oh and Theo is a Cub.
