Yep, watch that video / series. Good stuff.
I wouldnt say hes freaking out, more like hes telling the truth loudly. Its a great rant, its spot on, thats the truth it isnt sugar coated so you can swallow it better. Its cold hard honest truth, a large number of America is thinking it, he put it into words with passion, and we need a hell of a lot more of it. We're tired of watching our country circle the drain with a deadlocked congress that just today spent all of their time arguing over an EPA regulation THAT DOES NOT EXIST I wish I was making that up. Nothing gets done in that city, unless its a congresstional pay raise vote. Our president needs to stand up to this stuff, he needs to throw it all down stop worrying about the next 4 years and start working towards the next 40 years.
I am with the guy who said revolution is about the only option left in the USA. For reform to work, that would involve a way to force the ones in power to perform such a reform and the only way that is going to happen is either by brute force of the people (via revolution), Bill Gates or someone just as rich (probably more so but without public knowledge of it) starts to fund our politicians and forces them to do that (not likely), the people in power spontaneously a conscience (even less likely), or some miracle.
I hope I am wrong and would love to see true reform, but I honestly don't see it happening without the ones in power fearing for their lives or dead to do it cause they will not give up their power any other way.

The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.

If there was a decent, moderate third option it might get a lot of votes, but it simply won't happen. It's like gang warfare, both sides are determined to kick the hell out of each other, to disagree with each other, to simply do the opposite to the other guy. It's childish and pitiful, but you know what? The rest of the world is just as bad. I really wish we could have governments that put stuff to one side and just worked together, but party politics will always prevail. Why? Because the voters keep voting for them. It's pathetic.
Did you like the above post? How about sending me a dollar? I'd have adverts here but apparently that'd break ToS.
You do realize that any 3rd party that comes in instantly gets wrecked and if anything hurts the closer competitor. I.e. if the 20% of the people who vote for the 3rd party would have voted republican, and republicans get 35% of votes, the democrats still win with the remaining 45% of the votes. First past the post voting system is flawed for this reason EXACTLY. Go watch the video and for that matter, all of that guys videos, he explains it really well.
Its a funny video but he's right about everything

Having seats proportionate to votes would empower independents, and would actually mean that your vote counts, even if your a Republican in a primarily Democratic State, or vice versa.
Also, the guy is 100% right. Obama needs to come out and say, "Congress is fucked up. Help me fix it." Because honestly, he has absolutely no other power he can use to enforce change. People are always up in arms "Obama this and Obama that" - The man doesn't even get a fucking vote in congress.
Too bad he's more partisan than the majority of this nation.. Let's play his other 100 clips of him sucking up to liberals and bashing the right. He'll spew about how he's so mad at both sides, but in reality he spends 90% of the time bashing only one side while the other side is doing the same thing. He's an extremely bias Nancy-Pelosi liberal that won't be on air very long like most MSNBC crew..
he has given me new hopes in politics....and anyone else notices after the video one of the related videos is a nude girl occupieng wallstreet?rofl
but i couldnt help myself from laughing hysterically when he said "sorry for going a bit out of control" and it panned to the rest of the panel and the one bald guy just looked zombied
