Subject: RE: BS: Donating to Leiberman's campaign
In case you Folks are wondering why I support Lieberman, It is because I think the fact that we have political parties us the biggest flaw in or government.

A person virtually can't get elected without support from the Democratic or Republican party. For that support they have to vote the way the party wants them to or risk loosing that support. They can't follow their own beliefs and instincts or pay attention to the electorate. They carefully calculate what position will get them re elected before they speak vote on anything.

It is gang warfare like the Bloods and Crips and we are the innocent bystanders.

#2 Flaw is Lobbyists. They should be outlawed.
