No, we'd just have liberal and conservative factions and disputes, and it'd be a fg mess.

Factions may form, but perhaps not to the degree the current money machines known as political parties.

The same people are running both political parties. Maybe it'd be less messy if we didn't have parties, and you just voted for candidates. By the same token that might be the Political Mess From Hell if you had more that two candidates. What would happen in the Electoral College? It wouldn't be a majority vote unless we set up a run-off, which is pretty unthinkable right now. We'd have to wait maybe six weeks longer to get a winner.

Parties provide organization, whereas a free for all would only lead to chaos.

Are multi-party system inherently worse than 2-party systems?

I guess we need to examine how many parties can exist in a meaningful and non-chaotic way.

Let's get through 2006, see what the voters decide, and figure out from there what should be done about parties.

Even if we continue the progression to the one party system
