The United States of America is under the impression that its two major parties are at the opposite ends of the political spectrum. That could not be further from the truth, as we in the Green Party have been saying for quite some time now. Since I am just some dude on the internet without any real authoritative value, please take the time to read this article. It shows how “different” our two parties are from one another on anything that matters.
There are so many articles like this one that show this “vast difference” that it is amazing that we don’t, as a people, rise up and ask for a change. Those in power have us so evenly divided on “hugely important” issues that we are virtually powerless as a people.

Celebrating our “Warrior President” – Glenn Greenwald – Salon.com.
Glenn Greenwald is one of the most important journalists of our time. Regardless of what “side” of the fence you are on, he delivers articles with intense insight and thorough documentation. His comment sections are invariably amongst the biggest in journalism, if not the biggest.
The article linked above speaks to the incredible contradiction in today’s political landscape: President Obama is both a Nobel Peace Prize Winner and “one of the most militarily aggressive American leaders in decades.”
As a side note, it sure is interesting how “aggressive” the New York Times is as such a supposedly “liberal rag.” They routinely are cheerleaders for war. Recall their participation in the lead up to the Iraq War.
