There are 50 other parties to choose from besides Democrat and republican, yet they hardly get close to a double digit number come election time. The
cycle of the two party system is inevitability, there will always be a combined effort by two sides to push forth and agreed agenda. The issue isnt
the two party system", its whether those policies are right.
If the media refuses to give legitimacy to any of the third parties...then expanding on the 2 party system will never happen. The only way to do it
is to have HUGE funding if you are not one of the major parties....and since they are polar opposites of one another for the most part
(Dems/Reps)...there is no reason for someone who is donating money to a campaign to give money to a lesser known candidate if t hey feel they have NO
CHANCE OF WINNING.
It's all about tv time...if you don't have it in this day and age...then you have no chance...none...and you know that SG.
The system is broken...whether you want to believe it or not....and the media takes a huge part in the blame....as well as all of us who continue to
vote for the "lesser of two evils."
The majority of these "anti-two party" conservatives on here outright supported bush and his policies, voted him in twice and turned a blind eye all
those years. They know it, they understand the cycle and they know that they will end up supporting another GOP candidate, advocating his position as
president. So continue to denounce this "two party system" because to me your the same old bushie pulling off the same old stunt you did years
prior. Take off the costumes. Atleast then we can have a nice and honest debate here.
Stifling isn't it? What shall we do?
Republicans - Tax cuts, huge deficits, war, inflation, larger government.
Democrats - tax cuts/increases, huge deficits, war, inflation, larger government.
The Republican party is trash...i really hope it disappears...but it won't...why?
Because people are going to look back in 4 or 8 years...see that Dems overlooked the deficit as things continued to get worse...and they will switch
THEY ALWAYS DO. That is the cycle. THAT is what you should be worried about.
The people that put Presidents in office are for the most part....people who don't pay attention to politics....because if they did...our entire
history of Presidents would be different.
Now...as for Conservatives saying claiming the system is broken...of course they would think so if they can't find anyone in government that
represents their ideals.
And yes...there are still Bush supporters out there that stand up for the guy...I know a few and they WON'T budge on it...but the reason they won't
budge is because they won't look at any other information.
They like him because he goes to church and claims to be a family man with Christian values.
Unfortunately that's all it takes to be President for some people.
Or the promise of handouts.
