What is the difference between the Republican and Democratic parties? It's minimal at best.

Both parties speak of promises they cannot deliver, their desire for unconstitutional powers, and control of all production and wealth. Neither Party shows a deference to the Constitution or the Rule of Law. America currently has an arbitrary legal system with the accused having no idea of the rules of punishments (anarchy?). Both Parties allow criminal Representatives to remian in office. I know of Charles Rangel for one - tax evasionb for 17 years for some properties for one. Both parties allow individuals guilty of treason to run rampant throughout Washington - does anyone remember Sandy Berger? Washington needs to get past Sandy Berger berfore discussing the joke and smoke-screen od Valerie Plame. America is run by nothing more than a well-dressed group that would be better identified by the title of mafia with its dons and captains, etc.

Someone please tell us where they two Parties differ. They both want power and control -- they are just working from close, but different mathods for the same goal.
