Seriously the opposite of greed and ignorance is liberalism, and liberals occupy the democratic party. But they should occupy the entire government.
Absolutely. The two party system, like that poster said, is destroying America. His point was people see themselves as a party member and take offense at anything proposed by the other party, instead of carefully thinking it through. The world is not black and white and it never will be, we need a system that operates accordingly. The sooner we can add more legitimate parties or simply not recognize someone as a democrat/rep even though they share our ideals, the better. It is a system for control. That is why republicans think the democrats are the ones that ruined the economy - they have believed talking points of the very people that put us into this mess and try to attack the opposing party.
Divide and conquer works. Effectively.
