    The US population goes from one Business-party to the other thinking there is a difference. In the end, debates generally argue shades of gray. Americans will never see the problem lies with the SYSTEM. Business, Pentagon, Oil/Gas, Banks and the War-Support Industry are more important than the average citizen. Useless issues like "Gay Marriage" are "bones" that are fed to the people and the masses fall for it as if their lives would change because of them. Meanwhile, we need to control oil in other countries via illegal wars, the working class bails out Wall Street and pays their bonuses, and health care is only passes if insurance companies can rake in massive profits from subsidies from the taxpayer. As long as we don't talk about the systemic functioning between government and business, we will continue to elect those who really make no difference to society.
