They all stink, so I'm voting independent

I don't feel alone in saying President Bush, Congress and both political parties are the worst this country has ever seen and I doubt it will get any better with those running for the presidency.

I'm now voting independent because our nation is falling apart and we need a different type of leadership. Few things are made in the United States anymore. Our companies are outsourcing, shutting down or allowed to leave to set up in other countries like Mexico, leaving thousands out of work. The economy is bad, we're in debt spending billions on the war in two countries and illegal immigrants cross the borders freely, taking construction jobs and other work while receiving benefits they should not get. This government refuses to listen to the voters anymore, but caters to special interest groups, corporations and the affluent. The difference in the two parties is little and none and we can expect the same from them.
