    Sorry, my intent was not to take this popular thread off topic, but I probably could have worded it better.

    A I see it, we are trillions in debt because both parties of our two party system are put us there (for instance). Name your issue, it generally comes back to that fact. It is in their best interest to keep the public spending time arguing who is worse, rather than focusing on the ineptness of the federal gov't and demanding better service. We had the best chance in my lifetime to tell both parties we are tired of the status quo, unfortunately most people still voted dem or repub. If say 15% of the public had voted for someone other than the two parties I guarantee there would have been some deep changes in WA DC. The DNC and RNC would be united against anything that looked like a third party.

    So why does it matter which party is the worst or most hypocritical? Both suck....

    Proving which one is better or worse isn't the point of the thread. Those who preach they have moral clarity are particularly hilarious when they fail or are blatant hypocrites and it is so evident in conservatives and their party. I haven't even been trying and this thread is full of them.

    Ah, I see. So you are saying it is part of the republican platform that the party and their members have a "moral clarity" the general public or liberals do not have?

    And when you say "conservatives and their party" surely you must not be referring to the Republican Party. That group of nuts that is leading that party is not what I consider conservative (but I'm guessing we define conservative differently). I would suggest welfare reform under Bill Clinton was a more conservative type of policy than anything GW Bush was supporting for instance.

    I do agree it's worth investing a comment when some morality preaching holier than thou type person gets caught doing something the opposite of what they preach. And even though I am not agreeing with Republicans current stance in gov't, I don't see the entire party being hypocritical with regards to morals. People are hypocrites, I have even caught myself before (and some liberals too I'll wager .
