No, just the people in those two parties.

Is it the two party system that is failing or a president who defiantly defies a two party system?

I guess I don't know what the rules are for debate with the networks. Problem is there's not enough support. you had Nader and Perot at one time.

I always thought there were other parties but they are losers!

Because they are silenced on the national debate stage. It's easy to portray an opponent as a loser when they are denied to speak.

We are basically a one party state. Both parties suck and could basically be considered two wings of the same party.

We're far from a one party state

I said it is almost LIKE a one party state. No matter what, most elections are won by either the Democrips or rebloodlicans

Letting the other American political parties enter national debates. Let the best ideas win, rather than voting the lesser of the crap candidates. ;)

As of yet, no one has proposed an alternate system that would prevent a small minority from taking control the way the extremists did in Egypt. When 1/6th of the population agrees on "nucking futs" and they're the largest plurality, we all lose.

Have runoff elections until someone gets a majority

They're essentially the same party and the system puts every other party at a serious disadvantage

It's been failing this country for years.
