Republican or Democrat is the choice between going to Hell by train or airplane.
 
Not much of a choice, IMO.

Where it needs to be improved, is in paper trail. E-voting is fine, but voters need to be able to see on paper the vote they just casted... and this trail needs to be usable in case of a contest. This is critical.

We had here, in a Montreal, a municipal election that went wrong with e-voting technology... close election with a few technical glitches. There was no way to audit the results. This is unacceptable.

So while I don't share distrust, I do join you in to need for improvement in auditability.

In my state's elections, they had such a paper trail shown to me, which is a good thing in itself. But as other people have stated here, I see no essential difference between Republicans and Democrats.

I'm not.  I'm glad the Republicans lost the House, and I hope they lose the Senate too.  Whether social conservatives like it or not, this election was essentially a referendum on Bush and the Iraq war.  The Republicans deserved to be punished, and unfortunately in our system the only way for the Republicans to lose is for the Democrats to win.  As far as I'm concerned, both parties are "pro-death," just in different ways.   It's not like the Republicans are ever going to do anything about abortion anyway.

That's the sad truth. There are a few here and there who make a show of it, but nothing ever happens, and there are more "pro-choice republicans" all the time.

Missouri passing the initiative for cloning (read as farming) humans to then harvest stem cells and then murder them needs seperate consideration from any desire to see Republicans spanked.
 
While the SD loss was disappointing, it was a case where they failed to gain back ground that was already lost.
 
This amendment in MO is losing new ground. Big, ugly, frightening ground. Honestly I find it difficult to even contemplate the righteous anger our Lord must feel over this.
 
So, I'm with Jovan, on that count alone I am deeply troubled.

I thought you had also the Greens. And what about the "Paleoconservatives" I read about on Wikipedia (I know that that encyclopedia is far from accurate, but is the only source I have where I am at the moment)Huh? Aren't they parties?

Well, we have the opposite problem: more than 15 parties, ranging from Fascists such as Fiamma Tricolore (Tri-coloured Flame) to Communists such as Comunisti Italiani (Italian Comunists-not too hard to translate LOL), with everything in between: liberal Christians, Northern secessionists, liberals, Socialists...... you name it! You can see that we have plenty (maybe too much) of choiche!!!!

As fot the mid-term elections, I didn't support anybody to be honest, but if you pointeda gun at me, I'd have voted for Republicans- they are the less ugly than those two,and they'll bring you to the grave slower than the democrats. But in reality, as someone wisely said before, they are two sides of the same coin. You have to stick that way, my trans-Atlantic friends. [Image: awww.gif]

Paleoconservatism is a movement, not a party.  There is no paleoconservative party, though the Constitution Party comes closest.

The Green Party reached its peak with Ralph Nader in 2000 and has not been a significant force since.

No "third party" in the US has any chance of mounting a serious challenge to the Democrats and Republicans.
