Respectful Political Debate Encouraged But Hardly Likely

Post by WZ7U »

This is the first of hopefully many Political Debate threads here in the Zoo.

Politics is one of those topics people can get very emotionally attached to and very upset with when confronted with opinion that opposes their viewpoint. So, in light of this reality let me state for the record that in my opinion, both the R & D parties gave no viable candidates in the final offerings presented in the general election of 2016. Both parties final candidates had no business being in the running for POTUS and regardless who got in this time I wouldn't be happy about it. I say this because had Hillary Clinton got in I would be busting her balls as hard or harder than I do Comrade tRump. Having said this, may I present my position on the next presidential election.

I'm registered as an Independent. I try to vote for the lesser of 2 evils..
Everybody knows (Generally speaking) that both parties are crooked as shit.
They just differ in their openness and how far they are willing to go to achieve their agendas....

This is true Bubba. I also am registered Independent. I voted that way in the last General election as well as in the state elections. We have a governor race here in OR where the two big name parties have more of the same in spades. I'm voting for the Independent (Patrick Starnes) Party candidate because he is for removing special interest money from the legislative process which should free up the process here to move forward with meaningful reform.

To the folks that say I am throwing away my vote, kindly go [redacted] yourself. A vote for real reform is not a wasted vote; a vote for status quo is a wasted vote. I feel the partisanship exhibited the last couple decades, ramped up after 9-11, is what is ruining this country. Plus, I won't go into how I think outside influences larger than government have a hand in whats going on. Thats fodder for another thread.

I'm also an independent who believes that politicians should be banned from holding any elected office.

This is the political section, how does 'rational' enter into it?

There's nothing worse than an echo chamber filled with moderates :LOL:

What were the odds of getting three guys together that agreed about politics? Sort of anti-climactic in my reckoning.
