2 Party System = No Choice, Especially When Only 1 Is Represented

One party rule. It's been decades since one party has ruled in Georgia, but it's happening again. Sure, the one party that's coming into nearly complete control of the state is the Republican Party, but many of those representatives, state senators and for that matter state wide elected officials used to be Democrats. Six Democrats changed party affiliation in the last few weeks. When the Who said "meet the new boss, same as the old boss" they couldn't have been more right about politics.
For the first time since the Reconstruction of the South, Georgia has every statewide office poised to be filled by the recently elected Republicans. I don't see how this can be a good thing, just look at DC. With a Democratic majority in both houses and the presidency, our Federal Government has nearly completely destroyed our economy and put us so far in debt that our children's grandchildren will be born with a debt owed to foriegn powers.
Look at one party rule through another prism for a moment, The USSR, Venezuela, Pre WWII Italy, or maybe most notably the National Socialist German Workers Party of 1920's through the 1940's. It's obvious that one party running everything is detrimental to the well being of a society.
With that in mind, I urge people to pay particular attention, especially in "non-partisan" races, to what party affiliations that candidates might have. If all of the candidates in a race are all in the same party, it doesn't matter who you vote for, you will get the same result and fall victim to Einstein's theory of insanity.
