re: Do you think the current 2 party system is working well? - shel311
[quote]If this election isn't proof that its not working then I don't know what is[/quote]Agreed. But here's the scary part, if this year's election doesn't show some promise for people being done with both major parties, I mean, when will it happen? If Trump/Hillary isn't moving the needle fo...

[quote]The two party system is strangling the country and we should be working to change it, not continue perpetuating the problem. [/quote]I guess all the posters I wanted to answer are staying away from this thread, so it's just all of us in here in agreement...and on the losing end. :lol:...

[quote]This country's political system does not work with more than 2 parties. [/quote]1. Do you think it's working just fine now with 2 parties? 2. If no, so your answer is, "eh, nothing we can do, let's just keep voting D and R? Honest question, that's the insinuation I took from your pos...

[quote] So unless we fundamentally change our electoral system, which is unlikely, talking about a legitimate 3rd party is pointless[/quote]I hear ya. And while I'm certainly indirectly endorsing a 3rd party, my argument is really just moreso geared towards not voting D or R in an effort to make ...

[quote]The Founding Fathers tried to warn us about the threat from a two party system. James Adams Said "There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, Each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my h...

[quote]and the elimination of favoritism by lobbying efforts[/quote]That's certainly one of the biggest issues. And again, I'm not saying my way 100% works, but it certainly goes a long way in changing the system, whereas blindly voting one of the party lines not only doesn't help, it just makes ...

[quote]It's okay. I don't see how multiple parties will make any improvement[/quote]It's less about a 3rd party candidate winning(purely hypothetical obviously) and fixing everything and more about if the Democrats/Republicans realize they've done such a horrible job that a 3rd party candidate can w...

[quote]No since the 2 parties are diametrically opposed on most issues.[/quote]Right. Are you voting for one of them? I guess my OP is more posed to those who know the system is broke AND are still voting for Trump or Hillary. And honestly, it's not about either of those names specifically....

Do you think the current 2 party system is working well? - shel311
I'd assume the answer to that is overwhelmingly no, so for those that do say no, then why would you vote for a democrat or republican, knowing that won't fix the root of the issue? Honest question, as it's something I just don't understand. If you know the system is broken, we should be coming t...

[quote]There's no way I will vote for Hillary or Trump[/quote]I can't believe people actually vote for 1 of them then turn and complain about having to vote for the lesser of 2 evils. It pains to see how America can be this dumb. If you think our 2 party system where big business and money con...
