Heads or tails? They win, you lose.

 

People need to get used to it. The Democrats and Republicans are two sides of the same coin. Now, I don’t mean this in the “They are all run by the Illuminati who handpicks every world leader” conspiracy theorist type of way (although I am considering this position and weighing the facts, evidence, and/or lack thereof, as well as the conjecture to such a theory). But ultimately both parties are beholden to special interests and corporate money. Big Corps will hedge their bets by donating to as many candidates from both sides of the aisle as possible, so that no matter what they have people whose pocket they are in no matter how the chips may fall.

So all of you “Get corporate money out of politics” people out there, just remember: Barack Obama takes corporate donations also. That’s a fact. And that’s why people spout the “Obama is not different than Romney”/ “Democrats are no different than Republicans” argument. Not to mention that in addition to the corporate money issue, they also tend to land on the same side of many very important social and fiscal issues as well.
