Whoa. Never met anyone that liked Mitt that much. Pretty much anyone that I know that is voting for Mitt is justifying it as "I hate Obama and he has to be better than Obama"

Ditto. Every nation has immigration laws and quotas for a reason.

Also, this part isn't sitting well with me:

"At the same time, the supply of Americans who have traditionally filled many of those jobs — those without a high school diploma — continues to shrink. Their numbers have declined by 4.6 million in the past decade, as the typical American worker becomes older and better educated."

Is that true? I keep reading and hearing how 60% of black students and like 40% of white ones in NYC aren't graduating from high school. Something to that tune. Washington DC, similar. Graduation rates across the US are way down. Our education system is catastrophic and I think it will hit us within next decade. By that, I mean, so many uneducated, unskilled, people around at once.

I have no problem with immigrants coming to this country to work, one we have an aging demographic in this country, and there's nothing worse for an economy than a workforce stuck supporting the elderly.

I agree, but it has to be regimented. You can't just open up the borders.

So is it safe to say that most of you are unhappy with the two-party system?

I just don't see how any other way would possibly work - just imagine if all these little factions and caucuses became their own political parties. You would see the various coalitions team up to get the thing they all support passed.

Each issue essentially has two sides - for or against. The common sense positions usually lie in the middle, but ultimately you are still for or against something.

If you get rid of a two-party system, you would (theoretically) get rid of the "vote for the lesser of two evils" problem that we seem to be running into every four years.

That's a way too simplistic way to look at things, imo.

One thing I definitely do believe is that there will be a large shift in the parties over the next 20+ years.

Gen X, Gen Y, and the Millennials seem to be very libertarian. Those generations seem to be more annoyed by social issues than passionate about them.

Yes, it seems that many self-appointed libertarians feel that way.
