From -- Politicist: http://politicist.net/2015/07/06/2016-democratic-presidential-candidates-an-introduction/ New York — A few days ago, I published a post introducing the Republican Party’s presidential contenders. Since then, contenders for the Republican nomination have themselves in a twist, responding to comments made by Donald Trump. On the other hand, members of the Democratic Party are focused on the candidates that have thrown their hat into the ring. Here’s a chance for you to meet the candidates. Again, check back for independent candidates and individual candidate profiles.

There are numerous problems and issues in politics however one seems to weigh in other issue more than others, and that would be Extreme partisanship. Other wise known as radicalism. Today the main two parties that dominate America politics have gone to new extremes of liberal or conservative politics. So much that the politicians often left in the gray, or the politicians that compromise are lobbied against by their own parties for not being extreme enough. No longer do politicians listen to the people, but rather to the sponsors with the big money. Our government is now controlled by the rich and the few. No longer do politicians attempt to do their job which is to represent everyone and compromise. Instead we get one party trying to assert its agenda on all others. We've have gotten to the point where we have had to shut down the government because another party was so afraid of another party getting it's way. If you don't see that as a failure of government or even politics then so help us God. Are political system is on the road to failure. Politicians only care about the votes. You can seriously believe that bringing a snowball is proof that global warming isn't real? Never have I ever seen any evidence not supporting Global Warming so if you do please share after all I would like to hear from a real scientist like all these other politicians keep ranting about. No longer is the future of our society in mind. Politicians think about the now not the future. There has always been the choice between what's easy and what's right. Sadly the decisions are made the easy way not the right way. Reform is needed here. The government needs a multiparty system. Not everyone is represented now due to the dominance of the two major parties. Representation is a basic right in our constitution so why is it being denied? Coalitions need to be made so everyone in our country is represented and so politics as a whole will compromise again. The electoral college needs to be discarded as well because the electoral college system is a broken system. A broken system that worked 200 years ago. It is an outdated system that no longer represents voters in their best interests. A vote should count the same in every state not be transformed into a number that represents different states unfairly. Now some people here might blame Democrats or Republicans however it is both parties fault. I my self may be a democrat, doesn't mean I agree with them always, and I blame them just as much as the Republicans for the way our government is. Both are at fault so why don't both of them mend the problem together. Bipartisanship is set up to fail in our country so why continue it?
What is your favorite political parody? Comedy is important to politics because it seems like comedians can be more honest about politics through comedy. People on Fox News, MSNBC, CNN, ABC, all hold back on some of their stronger opinions because they cannot be blatantly honest and they have a formula they have to follow. Comedy allows people to be free. What is your favorite political parody? This is mine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lSnMSrXzMpA It is of a man who claims to be a tea party member singing about how President Obama doesn't love America.
