    It seems that the nation is fed up with both Democrats and Republicans. The only thing they have in common is when it comes to spending, the Republicans on wars, the Democrats on social services. When they don't agree, they lock the system so that the other can't do anything. It isn't about winning, it is making sure the other side doesn't win.

    I am beginning to wonder what would happen if the presidency and one of either the house or the senate was mostly run by and independent incumbency.
  2. What I'm upset with the tea party members is they should have asked every one of there candidates if they would only serve ONE term. If there candidate wouldnt,,then just go ahead and elect the other fool,,term limits start with US.

    I'm confused by this question. What do you define as independent?
