Two party system is a complete failure, but for the most people it is 18 months of entertainment and not as much as desire for your candidate to win, but desire for the other candidate to fail.
Agreed on all counts. However, it is important to point out that while he may be a "Jesus freak" (which, being a Christian doesn't make one a "Jesus freak"), he has a spotless record of NOT imposing his religious beliefs on anyone in the form of any bills, orders, etc. He sends basically all matters of religion and social values back to the states where it belongs. People in AK, CA, ME, FL, ND, TX, etc don't hold the same social values and they should be allowed to decide for themselves what the laws are. We're too diverse a nation for a one-size-fits-all social policy. Good ole "if you try to please everyone, you end up pleasing noone."
