Republicrats Duopoly

Everyone deserves the opportunity to influence the governmental decisions that affect them. But the defining characteristics of modern politics in the United States are a corrupt campaign finance system that enables corporate and wealthy elites to purchase political outcomes; and an abundance of anti-democratic electoral, ballot access and debate rules designed to minimize participation and choice.

The failure to fulfill the promise of democracy leaves millions of people in our country too discouraged to vote, and others who chose to vote seemingly trapped among false and limited choices. A system that promotes full and fair representation would draw millions of people in the United States into civic life and could revive democracy in this country. 

The presence of viable alternatives keeps Americans involved in our democratic process. These third parties did more than simply force the two major parties to adopt various policies. Third parties have always provided an “emotional bridge” for voters who are weary of supporting one major party but are not yet ready to vote for the other. George Wallace’s 1968 third-party Presidential campaign drew support from traditional southern Democrats who weren’t emotionally prepared to vote as Republicans. Fix Our Broken System

The two party system of government is a disaster in America for the people, but a boon for multinational corporaions and the 1% elite in American society. This system divides th people against each other. The division has become so sharp that no matter how bad one’s Party becomes it almost always seems better the other one. The military-indusrial complex now aided by Citizen United has gained control of both Parties. (MEK comments)
