I hereby propose a third party! REALISTS! Fuck lobbyist fuck wall-street and special interest. Do whats best for the people.
To bad it would probably never happen. There is a such a small group of "us" that actually have common sense in this country. Everyone in D.C. is just either trying to get reelected or just trying to have their party overpower the other. They could give less of a shit about what is actually going on in our country.
This is my outlook on a perfect country: One where we have competent presidents, a flat rate tax so that way everyone is happy, no fucking tax breaks, no need for foreign oil (more or less oil in general), just let other country's deal with their own problems without the need of intervention on our part, etc.
I would also just LOVE if we eliminated the Electoral College. To me that is the most ridiculous thing in our country today. Anyone with a partial brain could tell you it's pointless.
One thing that recently pissed me off was the whole defaulting fiasco. I don't see why we have people in Government who would let us default. The republicans would have not agreed if Obama didn't extend the Bush tax cuts. The thought that they would let us default without hesitation simply boggles my mind.
TL;DR Our country is just a mess and we need a party that has some amount of common sense.
EDIT: Oh yeah one other thing that just doesn't make sense is how much professional sport people make. My mom is a nurse and saves peoples lives, though she doesn't get paid millions
