Burr vs. Hamilton
The two party system has been pushed beyond the limits of reason and common sense. If politicians ever used to differ on the best way to serve the interest of the U.S., they now only differ on what will best serve their own careers.

Foreign affairs have turned into a political tool to advance personal careers. The crusades in the Middle East are an excellent opportunity to disrupt a culture of imperialism and promote the freedom of all people. Instead, the opportunity to free a people from rule by kings or mullahs, who are constantly starting wars and promoting terrorism, is being squandered by self serving politicians with no regard for their fellow man beyond what use their fellow man may be to these politicians.

It seems that politicians aspire to be dictators or kings. It matters not now, why we chose to fight the war in the manner we are fighting it. The U.S. did not start this war. But, our politicians are not all pursing the best outcome for this war for the U.S., many are undermining the interest of the U.S. for their personal benefit.  They have said things like "the war is lost", simply to embarrass the other political party with a U.S. defeat in war and the deaths our soldiers in battle.

A democratic example in the Middle East would bring peace and prosperity to a region currently run by bandits. Men and women could have access to equal protection under the law, and the freedom to practice a religion or not as pleases them. But, because someone would get the credit if this occurred, some politicians who would not benefit, are seeking to undermine our efforts there.  In fact it seems they wish to adopt for the U.S. a Middle Eastern model, whereby the most manipulative and least principled rule by fear, intimidation and force.

At home, judges used to believe that the best way to serve the people was to provide an unbiased interpretation of the law. Now, judges have joined the political process and are judging the laws, rather than applying them. Both liberals and conservatives want this to continue, but in a way that benefits them. The people are left without an impartial judiciary and disputes are being settled by politicians with agendas rather than impartial jurist who will apply existing law even if they disagree with it. How can honest people commerce with each other if the laws are malleable and dependent upon the whim of judges? "Yet, notwithstanding all this, if the laws be continually despised and disregarded, if (our) rights to be secure in (our) persons and property, are held by no better tenure than the caprice of a mob, the alienation of (our) affections from the Government is the natural consequence; and to that, sooner or later, it must come." (A. Lincoln)

All of these issues and more are most eloquently addressed in the US Constitution. Understand it before you dismiss it. Then vote for people who will support and defend it.
