Chris your are really missing the point. It's not really about Republicans or Democrats winning its about "We the People" winning. Until we can get over the we versus them mentallity in this country and realize we are all in the same boat, we will continue to struggle going forward. In the past we've generally suffered together, today the middle class and poor have suffered signifant loss of income over the past 30 years, while the wealthy have prospered. The Republican party has failed to come up with a solution to this problem except to give more tax breaks to the wealthy. If they continue with this approach, look forward to continued disenfranchisement with the voters.
