Almost 2/3 Of Americans Have Given Up On Political Parties Citing Corruption In Government

Do you LOVE America?


    Disillusioned by the promises of politicians and convinced that the entire political system is irreparably corrupt,  many Americans will be staying out of the voting booth for the 2018 elections. This isn’t new, however, as many refused to vote in 2016 as well.

    Although that number may seem high, in 2016, faced with the prospect of having to choose between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, 46.9% of eligible voters didn’t even vote in the presidential election. Most of those who no longer vote have given up on the “lesser of two evils” fallacy and the irrational belief that somehow the government has our best interests in mind.

    Respondents of the told poll takers at USA Today and Suffolk University in a recent survey:

    “Nearly two-thirds of adult U.S. citizens will stay away from the polls during the coming midterm elections, and they say they have given up on the political parties and a system that they say is beyond reform and repair…

    A majority of those non-voters would like to see a third party or multiple parties.” –Suffolk University

    The Huffington Post noted, “The poll surveyed Americans who aren’t registered to vote or who are registered but say they’re unlikely to cast a ballot. Combined, the two groups include more than 100 million adults, the pollsters note.” And the corruption in government is becoming apparent to those who choose to opt out of voting. About 68 percent of independent voters and party registered voters who say they are unlikely to vote this year agreed with the statement: “I don’t pay much attention to politics because it is so corrupt.” It’s a marked increase over the 54 percent of respondents who agreed to this characterization of politics in the 2012 survey.

    The bad news for both major political parties continues too.  According to Truth in Media, around 63 percent of respondents in these categories agreed or strongly agreed with the statement: “I don’t pay much attention to politics because nothing ever gets done – it’s a bunch of empty promises,” which is also up from the 59 percent who said the same nearly six years ago.

    Only 22 percent of respondents said the Democratic and Republican parties do a good job of representing Americans’ political views, which is down from 32 percent when the question was asked in 2012.

    An increasing number of voters from both sides are beginning to see the corruption and manufactured compassion inherent in most (if not all) politicians.

      1. Major study shows that the US is an oligarchy. Its quite obvious.

        h ttp://

        • FACT: At least 1/3 of all US Congress is being blackmailed by AIPAC and Israehell, to vote for in favor of anything (((THEY))) want including proxy wars across the globe for their benefit. Lindsey Gram is being Blackmailed by Israehell, because he is a Child Molesting Pedophile and they have him on Video Tape. FACT!!

          If you are 1/3 of Congressmen or women being blackmailed, then Resign NOW, or You Voters need to vote these corrupt Shills out of office entirely. We need to put America First and NOT Israehell.



      2. Those patriots that placed their youthful lives at risk by joining the military services will settle the issue of governance should the voters reject their duty to try & discern the wheat from the chaff. Few wish for that result. A return to the chaos of the mid 1800’s would be tragic. The choice is do you want Bernie Sanders type socialism or do you want a constitutional republic? We are somewhere in the middle at this time.

        • Not to be disrespectful cranerigger, but we have not seen a choice reflecting “constitutional republic” in a very long time.

          • We haven’t had a constitutional republic in a very, very, VERY long time. We have a federal republic where all the power is concentrated in one place, Washington DC.

            The professional politicians know this. That is why we hear all this jabbering about something we have never had — a democracy.

            Whenever you hear the word “democracy” think “bullshit.”

            20-percent of the homeless population in the US is made-up of “. . . those patriots that placed their youthful lives at risk by joining the military services . . .” and listening to some crap about democracy.

        • “… should the voters reject their duty to try & discern the wheat from the chaff.”

          Not sure what you are talking about? About supporting a political party, that which our framers called “factions”?

          Americans were never to have “political parties” because they are a weapon that can, and is, being used to destroy our nation. BTW, nor were the political parties given the duty to choose which candidates the People can decide from. That plus the general (federal) government is a representative for the states – yeah,, really. Proof follows in the words of those who were there (or shortly after). We the People of the united States are to judge those who we are to vote for by their constitutional knowledge and constitutional actions (if previously served in government in any manner) because that IS the supreme Law of this land, and the supreme Contract that they serve under.

          Alexander Hamilton: “We are attempting, by this Constitution, to abolish factions, and to unite all parties for the general welfare.” (Debates in the Convention of the State of New York on the Adoption of the Federal Constitution, Tuesday, June 25, 1788. In: Henry Cabot Lodge, ed., The Works of Alexander Hamilton (Federal Edition), Vol. 2, New York, 1904, p. 57)

          Alexander Hamilton: “Nothing could be more ill-judged than that intolerant spirit which has, at all times, characterized political parties.” (Federalist 1, October 27, 1787)

          John Adams: “There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution.” Plus he said: “Abuse of words has been the great instrument of sophistry and chicanery, of party, faction, and division of society.”

          George Washington, Farewell Address: “Let me… warn you in the most solemn manner against the baneful effects of the spirit of party.”
          plus “And of fatal tendency … to put, in the place of the delegated will of the Nation, the will of a party – often a small but artful and enterprising minority. … They are likely, in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the Power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government; destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.”
          And “The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism.”

          George Washington on factions, Farewell Speech: ‘The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism. The disorders and miseries, which result, gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of Public Liberty
          Without looking forward to an extremity of this kind, (which nevertheless ought not to be entirely out of sight,) the common and continual mischiefs of the spirit of party are sufficient to make it the interest and duty of a wise people to discourage and restrain it.
          It serves always to distract the Public Councils, and enfeeble the Public Administration. It agitates the Community with ill-founded jealousies and false alarms; kindles the animosity of one part against another, foments occasionally riot and insurrection. It opens the door to foreign influence and corruption, which find a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passions. Thus the policy and the will of one country are subjected to the policy and will of another.”

          John C. Calhoun’s 1831 “Fort Hill Address”: “The error is in the assumption that the General Government is a party to the constitutional compact. The States, as has been shown, formed the compact, acting as Sovereign and independent communities. The General Government is but its creature;”

          Thomas Jefferson: “The government created by this compact (the Constitution) was not made the exclusive or final judge of the extent of the powers delegated to itself; since that would have made its discretion, and not the Constitution, the measure of its powers; but that, as in all other cases of compact among powers having no common judge, each party (the people of each state) has an equal right to judge for itself, as well of infractions as of the mode and measure of redress.”

          St John Tucker: “The congress of the United States possesses no power to regulate, or interfere with the domestic concerns, or police of any state: it belongs not to them to establish any rules respecting the rights of property; nor will the constitution permit any prohibition of arms to the people;…”

      3. It doesn’t make a difference who you vote for if all sides produce war and the same freedom losing results. All elections are total frauds. I thought we had a voice and input on policy that held some weight. The light of reality is that our opinions mean nothing. Isn’t peace a requirement to be awarded a Noble Peace Prize?



            • And just repeat ad nauseum until you become a political crony clown loser like the above commenter.

          • It’s spelled “losers” loser.

        • Why would anyone vote for “party” (factions as the framers, forefathers called them).

          If we are to have HONEST elections we must first know the US Constitution and follow it. Remember or learn that “political parties” are not a part of our government, nor were they constitutionally delegated the authority to choose for the people who they must vote for. That is what allows(ed) for control by … let’s just say “others”, of our nation.

          Then we must insist and only vote for those who know the US Constitution – and in state elections, both the US Constitution and your state’s constitution – because that is where their duties are listed, which power(s) they may use. The things that are not delegated to that branch or named office within a branch that they might occupy are FORBIDDEN to them to use.

          Basically, if it is not in writing within one of those documents, or if it IS put into the Bill of Rights, it is NOT a “power” of our governments, but retained (kept) by the people to decide for themselves.

          So let’s start demanding HONEST constitutional elections. We do NOT need a political party to decide who the American people get to choose from.

          Please all, if you value freedom, this country, etc, at the very least read the pocket Constitution as then you will glean some basic idea of what our government truly is, and it is NOT what is going on today.

          How many of you know this, as Dr. Edwin Vieira, Jr puts so well, because you should KNOW this at the very least:

          “This has nothing to do with personalities or subjective ideas. It’s a matter of what the Constitution provides…
          The government of the United States has never violated anyone’s constitutional rights… The government of the United States will never violate anyone constitutional rights, because it cannot violate anyone’s constitutional rights. The reason for that is: The government of the United States is that set of actions by public officials that are consistent with the Constitution.

          Outside of its constitutional powers, the government of the United States has no legitimacy. It has no authority; and, it really even has no existence. It is what lawyers call a legal fiction.

          … the famous case Norton v. Shelby County… The Court said: “An unconstitutional act is not a law; it confers no rights; it imposes no duties. It is, in legal contemplation, as inoperative as though it had never been passed.”

          And that applies to any (and all) governmental action outside of the Constitution…”
          What are the defining characteristics of a limited government? They are its disabilities; what it does not have legal authority to do. Look at the First Amendment… What does it do? It guarantees freedom of speech, freedom of press, freedom of religion. But how does it do that? I quote: “Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech or of the press” etcetera. “Congress shall make no law;” that’s a statement of an absence of power. That’s a statement of a disability.”

      4. I vote. I actually do. Been a bad habit of mine since I was 18. Do I think the system is screwed, blued and tattooed, rife with corruption; and worse, in my voting lifetime my own vote hasn’t counted for squat in terms of changing a damn thing? Yeah. Yeah, that’s true. But like my 2A right, my belief in the Constitution and all the enumerations of rights and basic premises of this country, voting is something that needs to be done lest it too be lost. Just my 2 cents worth.

        • “But like my 2A right,”

          The US Constitution, Bill of Rights do not give you anything, it makes it clear that these things are “forbiddens” to those who serve within our governments. That the PEOPLE KEPT their natural authority over these things, and did NOT delegate these things for governments to decide. When they do allow the government to deal with those listed rights of the people, they say exactly what must have occurred, and what those who serve within our government must d0.

          Example, 4th Amendment: The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or Affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

          It says that the people have the right for their property, themselves, etc, basically says that the right against unreasonable searches and seizures SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.

          Here is what those who serve within our governments MUST have in order for them to search us… the search must be “reasonable” and lists what is considered a “reasonable search”.
          — With a WARRANT;
          — Based upon PROBABLE CAUSE;
          — Subject to DUE PROCESS REVIEW (oath or affirmation);
          — Particularly describing the PLACE to be search, AND
          — Particularly describing the PERSONS or THINGS to be seized.

          It is an all or nothing here, all 5 listed above MUST be present or it is NOT a Lawful search, it would be being done under “color of law”, pretend law.

          That does not mean an LE will not force you to go through this unlawfully, committing at least two felonies and Perjury while doing so, but because we are now in a “police state”, nothing will happen to that “officer” because all who will not prosecute him.her are either/and domestic enemies of the USA or traitors – knowingly or unknowingly.

          Hope this helps you to understand our constitutional republic better.

          Preamble to the Bill of Rights: Congress OF THE United States begun and held at the City of New York, on Wednesday the Fourth of March, one thousand seven hundred and eighty nine.
          THE Conventions of a number of the States having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best insure the beneficent ends of its institution.”

          • Cal – you and I are not in disagreement one bit. I do ‘exercise’ my 2A right (and all the rest to be honest). It’s rather like breathing…. just something we all have to do to know we are and stay alive. Voting is supposed to be also a ‘right’ as you define it. That every man has a voice in his governance (or lack of it) as a citizen of this nation. So, don’t mistake me, please. Somehow, you saw/read me wrong. That’s okay. The price paid for a quick post I guess. My simple point is that since 1972, I’ve voted my conscience. And unfortunately those I either did or did not vote for had none of their own. We, you and I, agree that a ‘right’ is intrinsic to our being.

          • That lengthy post is only partially true. If you think cops are chomping at the bit to violate civil rights to support scumbag thugs in politics think again. WE do not wish to do their bidding anymore than YOU do. Furthermore, as a *real* detective let me assure you, we investigate said crimes and I have personally written and served search warrants on other police officers who committed crimes. That you claim there are no repercussions for unlawful police actions means you are either deliberately lying to stir the pot, or you don’t have a clue what really goes on in my profession.

            • GreenMarine50 sorry to tell you if you weren’t aware, but you already support those “scumbag thugs” simply by being a police officer and enforcing their POLICY (not LAW) and collecting revenue for the corporation.

        • Heartless, we don’t have the privilege of voting now, even though they put on the show to make us think we’re involved and have some sort of choice. We go to the polls and cast our vote. What is a poll? A collection of pubic opinion – nothing more. It’s theater for the masses. It’s been acknowledged and admitted for YEARS that the electronic voting booths can and have been hacked to change the outcome. It’s been admitted by government officials they use dead peoples names, minors, and illegals to change the outcome. Honestly to me it’s a mystery as to why they even do this seeing as if they’re rigging it in the first place, then why go to the trouble of changing info the public will never have access to and can never prove anyways? They pick the leaders and it’s painfully obvious. I know you’re holding onto the belief that by voting, you’re standing your ground and preserving your rights by participating. Tragically, you never had that right to begin with – at least not in the eyes of the corrupt criminals that are in power now. All you’re doing is prolonging an illusion and playing a game the elite want you to be distracted by. It’s like a magicians trick; look over here at my right hand while I make the important moves with my left hand.

      5. Once upon a time, we voted for the candidate we liked the most. Then,as the 2 parties making up the system grew worse, we began to vote for the one we disliked the least. Finally, in desperation, we began to vote against the one we hated the most.
        Those of us who saw the way things were, gave up and stopped voting for the corrupt criminals of either party.
        I won’t go near a voting booth. The only vote they cannot miscount is the one that was never cast.

      6. My fellow Americans Read Your American mission statement The Declaration of Independence. THE SOULUTIONS and I men our Souls of the Founders are in WeThe People have written DISSOLVE THE POOLITICAL BANDS WHICH CONNECT ONE PEOPLE . Our Fedcoat Goverment has been corrupted by a Unmoral minority’s. We the People have traveled to this Fork in the Road ,go Left take the path known as the Fools Errand or The Hard Road known as The Truth which is Life Liberty THE PURSUIT OF HAPPENESS is the path of Hard Knocks ,Rough Going , Never anything Easy , Falling DOWN and picking yourself back up , getting Down On Your KNEES And Asking For THE PROTECTION OF DIVINE PROVIDENCE Known as GOD TO GUIDE US TO THE PROMISED LAND .

      7. I have ZERO faith in any form of Gov’t anymore in the United States period, The End.

      8. I think we should get rid of political parties anyway, and just go on the qualities of the individuals running for office.

      9. Patriots must infiltrate the Republican Party and nominate Tea Party Patriots in the PRIMARIES. This is the way to take back America, one elected official at a time, without having to fire a shot.

        The naysayers who told you here that VOTING doesn’t matter lied to you and the election of Donald Trump is concrete evidence that voting is the ONLY thing that matters.

        Globalists are on the run in both parties. Chase them all the way to Hell !!! 🙂

        • Kidd, hate to tell you, but the Tea Party has been co-opted some time ago by neo-con Republicans and is now absolutely worthless.

          • Ketch, DK: Tea party groups have their share of morons, many are ignorant of deep state agendas, etc. Tea P groups here dissolved as people dropped out some time back. I attended one meeting and the few I talked to didn’t relate to the “top dogs” (names like Soros, etc) and how they finance, etc leftist agendas, and other things like central bank control. People now need to be focused on prepping, getting their house and “everything else” in order. Deep state is working on getting rid of Trump, via false flag, etc. Many who have kept up w/NWO agenda for decades feel we have crossed the line (ship left the port, etc).

        • Tea Party is the past. Conservative candidates, the past. Patriots or puppets right now.

        • DK

          “Patriots must infiltrate the Republican Party and nominate Tea Party Patriots in the PRIMARIES. This is the way to take back America, one elected official at a time, without having to fire a shot.”

          I have been saying this for some time, I agree 100%. The Democrats need to get working people not freakazoid supporters to run in the primaries to bring them back to their roots.

      10. If you don’t want to vote then at least revolt against the power. I can never understand how 320-million Americans are afraid to stand up against the 1,000 running the country. An angry mob could take this country back in a week.

        We have to eradicate the professional politicians, or at the very least put them on the short leash of term limits. These old demented fools like Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Maxine Waters have to go. They are an embarrassment before the whole world. We need both term limits and age limits.

        We have to eradicate the rogue billionaires like Soros, the Koch and the Podesta Brothers, Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, and the like. They are taking over the government. The MSM is run by just six (6) corporations. This immigration crisis, this caravan and the boat people were all a George Soros paid for thing. Poland is kicking Soros out of their country. The Russians and the Chinese know this. If any of their unelected billionaires get out of hand and start behaving like they own the place, the government steps in and confiscates assets, tries rogue billionaires for sedition and treason, and sometimes executes them. We should do the same.

        Same thing with MSM, the banksters, corporate oligarchs, and the rich elites.

        • the blame: your comment is tops! practical info, yet Oath Keepers, League of the South, vets groups, and other groups fail to act on your advice, the reason I never join anything. (all they do is lip service, eat and retreat)

          • LA. I am a confederate. Have always been a confederate. Not much danger of me voting any time soon.

          • So-called “patriots” are just morons, that’s it. They have no idea how the US is run nor how it got its power in the world. The Tea Party and other bigoted political movements are just gangs of racists who get whipped up into a frenzy by various forces before they are disbanded and folded into the next mob of morons.

            America marches to money. If you have money, you buy the politician and get the policy you want.

      11. One in three is okay if they think the right way and vote. They would have to work to get the right candidates to run. Too many Americans only take an interest when there is a crisis. Actually, one-third is far more than I thought it would be.

      12. 3%. That’s all it takes.

      13. We blame corporations and politicians, when the real problem is the people we live with. Nobody twists their arms to elect the tyrants they elect. I’m speaking to the people that vote. The problem with our system is that is revolves around the small percentage of voters that can be swayed by the MSM or some pea brained celebrity. That is what all the money is spent on, the relatively small percentage of voters that don’t have the ability to makeup their minds or have a weak value system(such as Blacks that as a block, vote Democrat no matter what)
        That is why everybody in power ignores the voters. They know they can easily sway a relatively small segment of the population and get elected time, after time, after time.
        Our system could work, but we need to get rid of our village idiots.
        I’m thinking an EMP attack on our cities may not be all that bad for America. Full Disclosure; I don’t live in or near a large city.

      14. What’s the point in voting when the outcome, even when the loser feigns outrage, is always predetermined years, even decades in advance? When no true dichotomy exists between the two parties and they in fact collude behind closed doors and NEVER act in the best interest of the people the best thing is to get rid of them all, but since that won’t ever happen the next best thing is living as if they don’t exist. Circle your wagons around those you care about, build a good homestead for the family and ignore the intentionally designed social division.

      15. Watch both parties get primaried this fall. People are tired of things not getting done by either party and its time to start seperating the wheat from the chaff. Heads need to roll and business needs to be attended to.

      16. US is a Capitalist nation—which by its very nature then is for profit and exclusionary.

      17. Notice how Muslims are now taking over all the immigration ministries in Western countries? The UK is the latest. Canada has a Somali Muslim in charge of its borders. No surprise there that Canada’s borders remain porous to African migrants.

        This is a good example of money buying influence. Islamic finance is huge and they are buying places in the West to ship their surplus populations to reduce conflict and stabilise their countries. Saudi Arabia is a very unstable place for example. All Middle Eastern countries are an environmental catastrophe. They do not have the means to support their current populations, let alone what they will be in 10 years. Same goes for most of Africa. African countries are so poorly run, despite their resources, they are all running out of water and food to feed their exploding populations. It is a massive disaster.

        Dumb Europeans think that taking in a million here or there will solve the problem and relieve the pressure but it will do nothing. Half a billion people will be unleashed on the West in the next 5 years alone. They know this will be very stressful for existing Western populations and this is why they are giving them opioids and pot to chill them out. The violence in inner cities will be horrendous as gangs fight in the streets with knives and machettes. This is already the case in Paris and London.
