Democratic And Republican Parties Are Part Of The Problem

Excerpt from Independent Political Report: Independents: the Major Parties are Part of the Problem not the Solution

Independent candidates for Congress across the country are making the case that the Democratic and Republican parties are part of the problem, not the solution.

Republicans are talking tough on federal spending and the national debt right now, but where we they just a few years ago when they had control of Congress and the White House?

“Both parties, Republicans and Democrats, have left these issues unaddressed,” said Jeff Vanke, an independent on the ballot for Congress in the Sixth District who will challenge incumbent Republican Congressman Bob Goodlatte in November.

In the current proclamations of both the G.O.P. and the Democrats, I find no coherent philosophy; other than whatever one is for, the other is most surely against. This relationship is as irrational and destructive as the famous feud between the Hatfield and McCoy families. For many, it seems the feud has become more important than doing the people’s business, sometimes more important than the objective truth.
