"might defect"?!??

Oh, that's rich. As if they would have ANY real choice.

Both major parties are corrupted beyond redemption. We need a new third party that: (1) Represents Main St., not Wall Street. (2) Allows no corporate owned politicians in the tent. (3) Quits attacking other countries.(4) Demands a single payer health care system. (5) Promotes regulated capitalism.
