    What should the parties do to serve the interests of most Americans?

    Stop helping the upper class with tax cuts and giving them power that belongs to the people.

    The average person who watches CNN does. And despite what the Fascists say, CNN is a centrist station with a fence-sitter audience.

    The "people" pay little or no federal income taxes; they are paid by the upper class. How does making the upper class pay more taxes give any power to the people? The power of the people is in elections--they just need to get out and vote.

    Jackson's Prat, prat by name and prat by nature.
    .

    80,000 Americans died and 900,000 were hospitalised just two years ago from flu including the most virulent Type A version of H3N2, so why didn't you arseholes call for the total destruction of the world's economic system then? I hope you have plenty of time to ponder over that when you all lose your houses, jobs and relationships!

    He was even on Fox a bunch of times.

    I actually do like West for his consistency. I just think he needs to stop purity spiraling.
