Is the two-party system failing America?
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.
UP WITH THE LIBERTARIAN REVOLUTION
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
How many parties does India have?
What's a good alternative?
Letting the other American political parties enter national debates. Let the best ideas win, rather than voting the lesser of the crap candidates. ;)
How do you prevent the problems with first past the post systems?
How can 25% not think so??
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
Yes, and it has been for some time now
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.
