Be happy with a two party system. At least something gets done sometimes.
Out here in the Netherlands ( European member state) the word Poldermodel, is used to describe continuous discussion and debate until all parties are
satisfied in the end.
Or in other words. Our political system has probably 7 parties and maybe a dozen small useless wannabe parties... ( an elderly party, an animal rights
party, sitting chairman that cut their ropes to the party they were supposed to be a political voice for in the first or second,( mostly second)
government chamber,with distinct political ideologies, that try to get a majority in government by democratic elections.
You don't get a majority by votes with so many options for voters to vote for.
So the next step is working together with other parties to achieve a majority. It gives small parties which are important to get that extra chair and
form a majority... way to much power compared to the votes they got. If they are a divisive number on the chart, they will demand things they want to
The other option is working with another big party getting ego's rubbing with to many contradicting ideas.
This leads to striking down every interesting thing any single party had for voters to vote for them as a party, and only the normal things actually
go on without much change, and with endless debate.
So you either get a majority of people bow down to the wishes of a few, or you get a majority of people getting disappointed about every possible
good point they voted for to get erased for another 4 years, So bigger parties are able to work together without rubbing each others nerves, leaving
them more or less crippled boring political leadership, in a country where nobody gets satisfied.
When a system is set for results that do not satisfy anyone, what the hell can that lead to in the end ?
Not even mentioning the power and influence Europe actually has, takes and claims which is handed to it or offered without much drama at all. Making
our whole political system basically a waste of money, of time and most of all a ridiculous scene from a slap stick movie, where people try to create
the appearance for the country or probably more for themselves, that they mean anything, and that they've got something to say.
I can't even count the number of down grades for our way of life that have taken place, with so little to ask at first or even still every time....
People don't mind or care or understand what they have given away, get taken from or even been made to believe a lie for them to get something stolen
from... While the people that did it not only admit they done, but say they would do it again too...
Damnit... Politics suck.
But it beats getting born in a conflict zone or among another 500.000.000 people in poverty.
