the same two political parties? from many others? they are both flip sides of the same coin. candidates are selected first, both sponsored by the same corporations...then the media news owned by the very same corporations does their job on telling the masses who to elect...like mindless blind sheep. its worked for nearly a century. it is ingenious if you asked me.
there is more to it...you would have to do extensive research.
what I know took me 5 years of obsessive interest.g. luck.
Certainly, we only have two choices. We do not want twenty or a thousand. We try to pick the most qualified people for the job and eventually, the list of ten or twenty becomes a list of two and they end up on the ballot.
As soon as you decide to run, your life is over. Your family suffers and your friends are put out because you are investigated. If you kicked a dog one time when you were four, your evil animal abuse will be headlines all across the liberal media, local TV and the net.
Smart people know this and they choose not to run because every little problem in your life is magnified a thousand times and "they" will tear you apart. Smart people who could run and could do a great job setting things right will not run because politics is no longer about the best man or woman for the job.
