Each election I feel more and more that I'm not voting for the best person for the job, but rather the lesser of 2 evils. Neither party seems to give a crap about us little guys. Both seem more interested in keeping their power then making life better for those people who pay their salaries. This recent financial debacle makes this more clear then ever to me. Both the Senate and the House no longer seem to care what happens to us but rather look like a play yard of 2 year olds squabbling. What happened to our pride in our nation? Remember when the League of Women Voters ran the debates? They were real debates not the beauty contests we have now. I also am dismayed by recent Supreme Court Rulings that no longer protect our rights. The entire system seems to me to be out of whack. It's been happening for a long time and it seems that each election is worse then the last. What do you think and why?Answer Question

Ok, but revamped to what? I think we need to take a couple of steps backwards, towards the Constitution, instead of just "vamping" in any direction because we think we need to fix something. We did that with PBO's "hope and change" and no more doing things the Washington way. What brought us to this point was the Constitution. It will carry us forth if we have the ovaries (or cajones) to rely on it for guidance.

Our government is fine. The people we have elected to do the government's business are not fine
I totally disagree. It's not the people it's the system in place. The system is what controls who is placed on the ballot. It's the system that allow corporations and lobbyists to control the funding be funneled to each candidate. it's the system that perpetrates back door dealings and pandering to special interest groups. If a candidate ignored the system, the candidate would not be elected. Period.
