Priceless.

If the GOP is dying, which party will replace it?

Greens or libertarian?

Independents.

And the controlled two-party system will be circumvented how exactly, to allow independents in?

[-] 1 points by jrhirsch (4714) from Sun City, CA 1 year ago

By the people taking back their power by dropping out from the party. Democracy doesn't depend on parties, it depends on the power remaining in the individuals control.

Well said. Not sure how to post images, but this one fits the story for mine.

Love that cartoon. I think you can only post pictures in an original post, not in the replies. I have seen Jart post some pics in replies though. Not sure how to do it.

Even though Independents are about 40% of the voters, I still can't figure out how only 1.5% voted outside of the duopoly. Either the vote has been rigged for decades or we Americans really are a bunch of frightened sheep, blindly following the party wolves into the red and blue corrals.

I was watching a video the other day where the theme was, that from a young age, right through school, the two-party concept is repeatedly drummed into the minds of all Americans. As is the "vote wasted" idea, if you do vote independant. Group conditioning.

You have a link to the video?

Let's not forget to include military industrial complex welfare.

Looks like Mississippi, Virginia, Missouri, Arizona, Alaska and Alabama had better not secede.

Sore losers, these white power racists. Let them try.

Maybe someone ought to explain this fact to the population of those states.

[-] 1 points by MattLHolck (16833) from San Diego, CA 1 year ago

I imagine most of the states have lower populations

Let 'em go! The red states are moochers. Who needs 'em?

I tried to post this as a comment on the secession thread but the image wouldn't display, except when I was editing.

this chart does show federal money given to private enterprises by state

CA receives a lot of military dollars
