Voters need to wake up!

"The definition of stupidity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." -Albert Einstein

Typical citizen response to NYS politics (364 days of the year): A pox on all their houses! The Democrats and Republicans are all crooks!

Typical citizen response to NYS politics (Election Day): Huzzah for the Democratic (or Republican) candidate!

Typical NYS newspaper daily editorial (364 days of the year): State and local politics, run by Democrats and Republicans, are broken.

Typical NYS newspaper daily editorial (a few days before Election Day): We endorse x, y and z Democrats and a, b and c Republicans.


When will people wake up and starting voting for (or heaven forbid even considering!) smaller party and independent candidates? You know, people who actually aren't part of the mess everyone decries. Continuing to vote for only for Democrats and Republicans is nothing more than re-arranging deck chairs on the Titanic. How can you consistently vote for the same old, same old and expect something radically different?
