This graph shows the place on the political spectrum of all of the candidates for president. Notice how Obama and Romney are basically the same. America has been tricked into a one-party system.
When I was a kid during the Cold War I used to ask adults, “Why are the Russians bad?” and the reply would always include how they don’t have fair elections and people only have one candidate on the ballot. Look how far we’ve come.
I propose that you go to the source site for this image, politicalcompass.org, and find out where your beliefs really lie (the test there isn’t perfect or complete, but it’s a start), and see which candidate really represents you. You have more options beyond Thing 1 and Thing 2. I personally might be voting for Jill Stein.
Let’s take this opportunity to break apart the one-party system and build an America run by people rather than corporations.
