No matter who wins, the voters lose

And the loss is self-inflicted.

Already conversations are underway about presidential race for year 2016. More often than not, voters who complain and write off the political process will not engage with other voters in the effort required to draft a candidate to run for office.

Instead, most voters will wait around over the next four years, looking in from the outside as party leaders, loaded campaign contributors and political operatives decide what candidates will be "viable"--worthy of their support, primarily; then there is that secondary consideration--will voters support them?

For once can't we, the people, do the foot work for a presidential candidate that makes the exploratory committee and party machinery obsolete? Voters have the numbers to make this a reality; lacking only the coordination and political will.

How goes the cliche? If you don't vote you have no right to complain. And complaining never drew any voter closer to the decision making process that nominates and ultimately elects a candidate president.

No Love for the Republicans on this site and every single news source in America. Yes, they need a better Candidate and I think that in 2016 Rand Paul, senator from Kentucky, the son of Ron Paul will run and win the Presidency. Secondly, the fact that every news reporter and agency is a flaming liberal is not helping what we once called a Democracy. An objective press is somewhat important in keeping us free from tyranny.
