Both parties need to be eradicated. Throw out the lunatics, End the corruption and greed and start over

Not unless the Democratic Party is also eradicated. And the Libertarian Party, and the Green Party. And the Socialist Party – no, I already mentioned the Democrats, didn't I?

All parties should be eradicated.

I am not a fan of the two-party system, or really even any of the parties in existence to my knowledge, but I understand that these parties will happen even if we eliminate the current ones.

No. I’d like like to see an emergence of other parties play a bigger role.

I’m not surprised me and you agree. We generally do, “great minds” 🤣

See my comment below just below.

Definitely! This mess we have now is not working.

I think all political parties should be eliminated.

I️ disagree. Parties are an essential way people can collectively think to make goals and form groups on common policy.

It’s also a great way to find the best candidates within people who think alike.

The party system isn’t the issue. It’s the two party system. It’s a constant us vs them mentality. When one party makes a stance the other goes against I️t to get the other half of the votes.

Then people like me who are generally always in the middle of stuff get hated by everyone because we don’t fit in any party.

I see the party system as teams fighting to win vs representatives of the people. That’s why I have always been an independent and focused on candidates not party.

Fair enough. I️ definitely understand that line of thinking.

I️ won’t even argue that you’re wrong. Personally I’d rather just see more parties emerge than dissolving them completely. I️ think politicians will make their cliques anyways, so I️ think it’s best their is more options out there. But they that’s just me🤷‍♂️

I’ve voted third party before. I wish the two parties allowed more parties in the debates and that they didn’t have to fight so hard to get on the ballot.

Jill Stein was handcuffed to a chair for hours just for attending a debate.

The two party system is rigged with dark money. We need Citizens United overturned. You shouldn’t be able to buy politicians.

I️ definitely agree with that. I’ve only voted for one of the two major party candidates once and that was a write in.

I️ don’t like the system so I️ refuse to vote within the two because they don’t represent me.

I support that. I will never vote by party. I don’t believe they are seeking to represent your average working Americans. They represent the highest bidder and their career and desire for wealth.

It has been, except in name. They used to be a respectable, small government, strong foreign policy, big military party.
Now, they are just pro-corporation with principles that only lead to keeping their majority.
Also, I’ve never been a democrat because I’ve always thought they were too whiny. The republicans used to be strong & take-no-shit. Now, they’ve outpaced the whininess.

Only if l they eradicate themselves.
I wouldn’t stop them if they did.

No, then they will be like democrats. A ship without a captain.

Praetorianus Fair enough.

Answer is no to both polls.
We need a balance and two or more alternative choices or would become a totalitarian state.

06/11/18 7:01 pm

Yeah, but the alternatives don’t need to be democrats or republicans.

Praetorianus Fair enough.
06/11/18 7:05 pm

True, but I think in most democratic countries you have two "big" parties, one left, one right.
They may need junior partners to form a coalition but it's still two big ones somewhat like ours.

06/11/18 7:07 pm

I agree. I just wouldn’t miss these two specific parties.
