    Because freedom from government means corporate governance.

    News outlets' highest priority is readership/listenership/viewership numbers.  People whine that the MSM are biased.  Well, they're biased in terms of maximizing their audience.  They cover the news in the way they believe most people want to see.  Most people seem to want to see the election as a horse race.  Who's ahead now?  How far?  What happened today to shape the numbers?

    Third parties are futile.  We've always had a two-party system, and the two parties have jiggered the system to make it almost impossible for a third party to get a toehold.  We only get a new party when an old party dies, and the last time that happened was in the 1850s.
