Double-talk, absolute power defines both parties

Will one farce follow the other? That is what I am asking myself. You poor Republicans think you are all about change now. Any possible change went up in an instant as John Boehner overruled millions of Americans at the RNC. I watched as he declared the Republican Party closed to debate.

I have always known they are only for power. I cannot think of anything more un-American than that. All of you neo-cons should feel shame in supporting this ideology.

Making Ryan a vice presidential pick was the best way to shut him up. You think Joe Biden is effective for anything but jokes? Obviously Ryan only wants power and will say anything, just as Democrats will. Romney's picking of the creators of this depression, GWB's advisers, is just too obvious.

At least now I am prepared for the Democratic version of this. How can those puppets outdo the Republicans? The agenda of the neo-cons is to destroy America from within. The Democrats have continued in lock step. They speak from one side of their mouths saying they will make change, while the other side of their mouth loves the contrast and all the political fun of destroying my country. All of it is opportunistic double-talk in the name of absolute power.

Political racism against real patriots must stop. These two political parties, like their conventions, are a farce. Vote them all out before it is too late.

    The DNC scripted a vote to change the party's platform one week after the Republican leadership did the same thing at the RNC.

    A farce indeed... http://youtu.be/HmaE2Aez_XY
