I think it is time to look again at the American Political Structure

The main problem is that it originates from the British political system of the 18th century. There power was held by the King and two unrepresentative parties of the people: the Tories and the Whigs, these however did represent the ruling Oligarcy of Landed Gentlemen. In drawing up the American Constitution far too much attention was concentrated on limiting the powers of the King ( President ) and two little to allowing the people to have representative government. Basically both the Republicn Party ( overtly ) and the Democratic Party ( discreetly ) represent the interests of Big Business the successors of the Landed Gentry. What is needed nowdays is replacement of 'first past the post' ( which by its very nature enshrines two party rule) by proportional representation. Please comment.

***MOD EDIT***
Not an Introduction Thread
*Closing Thread*

The Introduction Forum is for introductions To tell something about you; not to start a thread about a topic.“Intro threads” that are really “topic threads” will be removed.
Welcome to ATS, it’s time to introduce yourself.

This area is solely for introducing yourself (as you can see by browsing through other Introduction threads by new members). We apologize for this inconvenience, but its a necessity for a website as large as ours. I've had to remove your entire post as it goes against our policies.

Strict code's like this are in place to help keep the machine 'running smoothly'. One of these policies is that members need to post their thoughts in the appropriate areas. I'm sure you'll understand the necessity for us having rules like this. It helps keep all the great threads and topics in their perspective areas of interest and not all lumped together, making it difficult to find when wanting to make additional comments.

I'm going to have to close this thread as it does not comply with the above stated rules. After you have managed to get 20 posts under your belt, start your own thread in one of the appropriate areas.

Thread closed, you can contact me by a private message for more information if needed after you have read the links provided above and in the final post below. Or you can also contact staff by alerting them here Complaints and Suggestions
