Freedom of Assembly and Association, huh? I think it has done more harm to the United States than any other element. Why do I think this? It's because the Republicans and Democrats have a shared monopoly on the political system. It's because far too many lazy people blindly vote for someone just because he's a part of one party or the other. How many people vote for someone not knowing anything about him except that he belongs to a particular party? That's retarded.
It typically requires an enormous amount of money to win major political seats. It's no secret that these two parties have the most money and so it's next to impossible for anyone else to compete against them.
So much for a fair playing field. Who the hell designs a contest that isn't fair and balanced? What if the most intelligent and mentally fit person refuses to be a part of the Republican or Democrat party? Does he stand a chance? No. No, he doesn't. So America loses out.
I hope that the Internet will bring an end to this sickening system one day. The Internet is the only hope for America, but it could be too late before it can rescue us. This two-party system needs to be cracked.
