I'm not the biggest fan of only two choices, which can be very polarizing and very centrist at the same time, but I have to say, a parliamentary system with endless arguments over coalition rule, coalitions falling apart, etc isn't much better in terms of cycles and productivity. Nothing's perfect. I support (not with money, but I'm happy to see) all third party candidates running in elections, even the ones I see as wackos, because I think variety is good for the electorate.

I'm not really affiliated with any party right now, but Its not hard to see that the Republicans turned our country into a terrible direction, so I'm glad the Dems won
I'm Just a Bill

not if you're a multi-billionaire who can finance his own campaign, dollar for dollar with either the dems or the republicans, without need to take a single penny from special interest groups...

What issues are you referring to?
The 1964 Civil Rights Act and some other landmark legislation was passed under the two party system. That seems like a big change to me.

I was listening to Stephanie Miller on the radio when the press conference came on and she said Bush's cabinet behind him looked like "a satanic MT.Rushmore"

She is so funny! Love her
