Are political parties just cults.?
I find optical,parties just too radical and close minded these days. Isn't that really the problem these days anyway . No body associated with a party is allowed to.free think and at least maybe not agree but at lest come to a agreement anyway. Seems to many these Fay's just want there own way and are unwilling to compromise

Optical parties? What are those? 8^)
Seriously, political parties USED to be a bunch of people gathered together through some common political principles. The Democrats and Republicans seemed to represent two different political philosophies, both relatively practical and justifiable and respectable. But what I think has happened is that the parties have deteriorated to just two competing centers of power, two nationwide street gangs.
My feeling is that money did this. Elections have gotten so expensive! Both parties desperately need truckloads of cash and they both get the money from the same sources, the same sponsors. So they represent them, not us. Neither party wants to help the middle class. Neither wants to fix the problems we have because the top 1% doesn't have these problems. The middle class is shrinking and endangered, and most people are poorer over time while the rich and corporations do better year by year, decade by decade.
