    Why hasn't anybody asked the affirmation who gets to decide what is "anti-american" and what standards do they use to determine what is un-american?

    I believe there is some truth to Hollywood's fueling of anti-Americanism abroad, with all the anti-govt. conspiracy movies that are out there.

    The only thing I see wrong with your logic is that you seem not to have taken percentage into coedosnratiin. Independent voters are in the minority, and while they can influence a political race if the voting is close enough, it's an impossibility that 100% of them will choose one party over the other. Thus, your logic that 1 (Republicans)+1 (Independents) = 2. Majority , for example, takes a nosedive as soon as you exceed the number of independent voters there are. After that, you can't use them in the equation. It then becomes a question of, will R+I be greater than D+I when the voting has finished, and if so, did the addition of I to both R and D change the outcome of the election as opposed to what the outcome would have been if I had not been present.
