The points made in the clip might be a bit sharpened but has anything changed really, and/or will they ever? And if some change is made, how long will it last?

Some may argue that on some of the issues in, the clip, its more of a Republocratic or Demopublican grey-scale, and the two parties are just pooling in the middle making rhetoric for show.
Others may argue that the system is so gridlocked and divided that just minuscule changes in either direction can ever be achieved.

On some issues, since cash is king, change will never come, and issues never be resolved.
A land, forever, separately united.

The name of the topic was taken from the title of the video-clip "I'm Voting Republican", not a personal stance-taking. :D
Good for you, for voting. Many seems to not bother at all.

Its better to vote blank than to not bother at all. A blank vote is a message, not voting as all is like not caring.

Maybe if the Republicans would be more socially liberal, I'd consider a vote for one or two of the one's I agree with.

Get almost the same regardless, so, might as well go with the lesser of the evils whoever you think that may be.

'Yet' implies that I have every intention of doing so. My view is that there is no politician in the entire world that is worth my forfeiting sleep to get up before work to vote. I will vote when I get off work.

MY GOD .... Hasina has gone Super-Saiyan!

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

This is what 9 Senators, who were stepping down from office, had to say in a round-talk meeting about the dysfunctional senate back in 1995!!

That pales to what's going on today.
Today it is a -" **** you, I wont even talk to you"-atmosphere.

No wonder nothing happens...at all....ever.

I'm not voting,Why,Cause one canidate is worse than the other,Not one of the people who are running for office is worth squat.Everyone can say that I don't care.well I guess I don't,I dont care about any of those fools who lie,cheat,and steal our rights .And the list of canidates looks like a list of criminals which to me they are. Not going to vote another wakko in the office just to hear and see someone lie to the people,Wish there was a way to run this country with out some fool in the office and with out having to look at another country for help.We can do it by ourselves,Where are the Linclons and Washingtons who so loved the country,It's not like that anymore,the faithfull are going to be heart broken.If our forfathers could see us now they would hang their heads in shame.JMO
