Are the Democrats and Republicans even capable of fixing our nation’s fiscal situation? I mean, aren’t they the ones who got us into this mess to begin with?
Voting for the two old parties is like rehiring the plumber who flooded your house.

Many of us vote Democrat or Republican simply because of our family upbringing. Most people who say “I’m a Democrat” or “I’m a Republican” don’t actually belong to those parties; they simply vote that way.

Maybe Mom and Dad were wrong.
