    Dont you find it odd and depressing that there are only 2 serious choices for political parties and candidates from other parties have almost no chance of being elected?

    “On its world, the people are people. The leaders are lizards. The people hate the lizards and the lizards rule the people.”

    “Odd,” said Arthur, “I thought you said it was a democracy.”

    “I did,” said Ford. “It is.”

    “So,” said Arthur, hoping he wasn’t sounding ridiculously obtuse, “why don’t the people get rid of the lizards?”

    “It honestly doesn’t occur to them,” said Ford. “They’ve all got the vote, so they all pretty much assume that the government they’ve voted in more or less approximates to the government they want.”

    “You mean they actually vote for the lizards?”

    “Oh yes,” said Ford with a shrug, “of course.”

    “But,” said Arthur, going for the big one again, “why?”

    “Because if they didn’t vote for a lizard,” said Ford, “the wrong lizard might get in.”

    hence the need for a 3rd major party in the USA

    we have a Green Party here too, but the leader is some dyke that nobody gives a shit about, so they never win any seats come election time. lol

    At least I expect to die in peace, whereas, odds are great that you'll die in some dank Canadian prison convicted for Child Rape. :c
