In theory yes in reality, when did that happen for the last time?
For example, in many countries in the EU where where far-right parties have recently become one of the bigger parties. Even idiots are stealing votes
from the popular parties and becoming one of the biggest themselves.
If idiots can do it, so can other people too.
In my country we got basicly three big ones, I have seen many different party's rulling (although they Always have a power structure with more
party's, mostly 2 or 3) and it's all the same since I can remember.
If this is the case, you should vote for some other party.
It's more like most know that voting on a party which doesn't got a change is basicly a lost vote so they mostly make a decision with voting on a
big party and then on a party they can agree on some things.
If this is the case, then they apparently do not understand how a democracy works and how important it is to vote and talk about a small party that
you really believe in.
And yes the masses most go the same way or do what's populair. Like kids who likes the car of their dad.
Well, if they think that's the most important way to choose their party, they have all the right and freedom to do so. It may be idiotic but it's
the people's decision.
A internet craze is short lived, and snowed over/forgotten soon when the big media show comes with the new political 'leaders', where you don't
see anything else on TV!
Do people really still watch TV, except for their favorite shows & sports? Oh well.
The masses don't know much about other party's/leaders, they get bombarded by the main candidates.
In a free country, you are free to decide yourself how and what information to gather.
Ok never say never, it can happen but the change is very small and even then it remains to be seen things change.
How about starting with yourself? If you act like the masses, why complain? If you don't complain, then everything's fine already? If you do
complain, do something about it. Change your way. And if you change your way, you will make a difference. How much of a difference is partly up to
you, and partly up to the people who do or do not agree with you. If they don't agree with you, then what they have now is better than what you
