Are we finally getting sick of Bipartisanship: caveat - politics
I voted in my first election in 1987. I studied the politics of each candidate up to the Minnesota state level. After that, I 'threw my vote away' on the third party candidate most likely (or least unlikely) to get into federal politics. Why? I figured that for a candidate to get that far in national politics, they had to be completely out of touch with their constituents, salivating for power over relevancy.
The next year, I was able to experience a full-on election in Denmark where they had something like a dozen parties in play in the election.
I openly admit that I am unqualified to say this is right, because I pay most of my attention to local and global issues (where the real action is . . . bypassing the political stock market that is national politics. Seriously, my own deal).
That's why I pose this as a question.
I was earnestly shocked to see Freshjive issue this shirt. I'm a fan of Shepard Fairey, and Freshjive and my friends who were completely sold on Obama in the past election.
I post this only because I'm curious. What the hell happened? I'm admittedly oblivious.
This seems like a really drastic statement.
Post. Educate me. Please. I just want to understand.
(caveat #2: I'll still vote the same as I always have, so don't try to sway me.)
