Insanity: Voting Democratic or Republican Over and Over Again, and Expecting Different Results

From a letter to the editor of the Post-Crescent:

I've had enough. Both letters to the editor on Sept. 18 contain valid points and prove that neither political party can be trusted. There are alternatives to Democrats and Republicans, but they receive very little if any coverage by major media outlets.

One example is Rob Taylor of the Constitution Party. Mr. Taylor is running for the U.S. Senate. Rob is on the November ballot, yet has not been invited to join the debates between Ron Johnson and Russ Feigngold. Why not?
Is it because the other parties don't want you to know there's another choice? Do the major print and broadcast media choose not to cover candidates like Rob because they know there won't be any large advertisement dollars from his campaign?
The other problem is those who believe only well-known names can win. Are you betting on a horse race, or voting to elect someone who will represent you and do what is right for Wisconsin?
Albert Einstein defined insanity as "doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting different results." I have come to believe that the Democratic and Republican parties are just different sides of the same coin. And until we change how we think and vote, we will have the same results.
I urge you to do your own research, form your own opinion. Go to and be better informed come November.
Both major parties have trampled the Constitution and lied to us. That's why I'm voting for Rob Taylor on Nov. 2, because any other vote just continues the corruption.
