Take a look at the the diagram below…
No great surprise right? But here’s the hitch… Americans are sick and tired of these two parties. Consider that we’re roughly one third Democrat, one third Republican, and one third Independent, and that the current shift away from the two major parties and into sanity independence is trending strongly upward, according to Pew Research:
Quite simply, people are disgusted with the two-party, good-old-boy, nudge-nudge-wink-wink political machine. Our values are no longer reflected by our elected officials; and their greedy selfish hubris is killing us.
Mark these words… The elections of 2010 and 2012 will witness a sea change in this country. We’re sick and tired of czars and bills that no one reads. (Oh by the way, now there’s talk of a “Health Insurance Czar” that would mold our health care system just in case the ruminations rattling around DC don’t actualize.)
No… There is a storm brewing, and it’s reflected in those charts above.
Enough is enough.
