The Democrats certainly have some issues they champion I side with. Having said that I firmly believe that the majority of Americans are just like me with leanings to one side or the other but for the most part are sitting on a fence in the middle which is why we need a third party to represent our interests. The current system is so corrupt it is beyond repair with these two parties in power.
After watching the six hour fiasco that unfolded with the passing of the Energy Bill this past week I've come to the conclusion that both the Democrat and Republican party are now so far gone they are all but useless. For starters we have 1200 page bill rammed through with a 300 page amendment dropped into it at 3AM the day before it's to be voted on. How many Democrats do you think read all 300 pages before it was voted on? I'm only using the Democrats as an example as this would have happened if the Republicans were in power as well. They are both equally bad playing politics when they should be representing our interests. As best I can tell whether your Democrat or Republican most believe this to be very bad legislation. "We the people" don't want it no matter which side of the aisle your on and again if this was a Republican bill it would be the same thing.
The debate itself was a joke. I've been following both the global warming legislation, estimates and studies both pro and con devouring just about anything I can lay my hands on. Both parties during this debate were misrepresenting or outright lying about many of the facts and figures they presented. My only other conclusion could be they have no clue and if that is the case we are really in a world of trouble.
BOTH of these parties are destroying this great nation and it needs to stop. They both pander to the special interests while "We the People" get a crowbar stuck up our ass. I'm *censored* and rightly so as should every other American. If this isn't stopped I really fear for the well being of this country and what it will become.

The reality is, as he was told at a debate by the moderator, "The people don't care about the Constitution. It's over their heads. What SPECIFICALLY are you going to do FOR THEM"

That is what the liberals have been doing for years. Conseratives have figured this out but then if they get in control it will go to far the other way.
