There is no real third party in America. There's this one party that has two sides to it - the Democratic and Republican side. It's one party that has two heads.
Both the Democratic and Republican parties are bought and paid for by corporate America and cater to the needs of the highest bidder as opposed to the people they claim to represent. I cannot be bought.
