I think I feel like many that the two party system is broken. This may be hard for you party hacks to accept but it is the reality. Never in my lifetime have I seen every single issue politicized so nothing is getting done. I'm talking about big issues, Iraq,Terrorism, SS, Medicare, immigration. These will all have a major impact on the future of the country but all we hear is yelling back and forth. In other times, when our country faced a major crisis, a leader would emerge to bring the nation through the crisis. There is no such leader in either party now nor it appears to be one in the future. One side blames Bush and takes great joy at his low poll numbers. However the disapproval poll numbers for the democrats in congress are just as high. This nation is crying out for independent leadership. A couple of suggestions would be some of these people to denounce their parties and run as true independents. Fred Thompson, Joe Lieberman, Evan Bayh. Mike Huckerbee. Don't need a nut like Ross Perot or Pat B. We need some true leaders. I know that indpendents usually don't fair very well. But, I think this time they could pull it off because there a many, many people disillusioned with the two party system that we have now. If they could win or make enough noise to shake the parties to their core, if would be a great thing. We will always have right and left, that's just the way people are. But, does there have to be such a divide? How many people are willing to tell the party that they are registered to, "goodbye, you aren't getting it done, I'm not voting for you any more"?
