I most definitely agree. Now, I'm not a billionaire, a multi millionaire or even a millionaire. So, 'opening my wallet' to start paying to try to change things is not going to happen.
The entire concept of a political candidate working hard to raise $100 million a month or more to run for office borders on insanity. The system can't sustain things the way they are and it's going to come crashing down around us all. If not in our lifetimes, then in our children's lifetimes.
I don't actually see the G.O.P disappearing, but if control of it is being redirected into a Conservative Constitutional Party, that may very well be the third party that we need because, the G.O.P will still be there afterwards.
I use the terms 'right wing nut jobs' and 'left wing anarchists' loosely in order to illustrate the vastness of the gap between the right and left. While the politicians work on telling the people what they think the people want to hear so that they can get elected, they follow their own agendas.
I don't see Romney/Ryan as a 'great' choice to vote for, but it is better than what's there now. I wonder if we ever will again see a really great choice. A choice that wins the vote with a landslide for the very reason that it is a great choice.
