Ron Paul decides it's "a plague on both your houses"!

Ron Paul has decided that neither McCain or Obama are going to cut the mustard when it comes to changing things. Instead, he endorsed the presidential candidates for all (somewhat reasonable in size) third parties. He asked all his supporters, and Americans in general, to vote for one of these candidates, not for the leaders of either political party.

After he read the statement, Paul went on to talk about the two major political parties and the current political debate in the United States, and the two-party system in general. “I’ve come to the conclusion,” Paul said, “that presidential elections turn out to be a charade more than anything else. The endless discussion that goes on for ever… and all the talk about things that are unimportant… it just goes on and on and you just think about all this talk on television pretending there is this great difference… and really, when you look at it, there is no difference - because they do not address this subjects. We have other candidates … that disagree with the other candidates and… the important thing here is ‘who is the majority?’”

“There is no doubt in my mind,” he went on to say, “that the majority is on our side. We represent the majority of the American people. 60% of the American people are unhappy with their choice.”

I get the impression that McCain and Obama together will be lucky to get 40% of the America people to vote for them. It is a great pity that for many in the US democracy passes them by. Much the same as in the UK. Anybody ask us if we wanted acres abolished?
