Not necessarily, the three party system in Canada split up the lefties into the Liberal party and the NDP, giving the conservatives the win. Wink


That's Canada, that ain't here.  Wink

Two party systems cannot be broken out of in a functioning democracy.

It's called the problem of "First Past the Post"

I strongly urge you to watch with an open mind about what's being said.

After that watch this video on how to run a superior election

If this system were in place, Ross perot would never have spoiled the 1992 election yet voters could confidently back Perot. INtrigued? You should be. Watch the damn videos.

Let's see, there's the Republican Party, The Democratic Party, the Conservative Party, The Peace and Freedom Party, The Socialist Party, The Green Party, The Communist Party, and a few other parties. We have more than a two party system.


Yes, technically, you're right.  But, we live in a culture that argues that voting for anything beyond Democrat or Republican is "throwing away your vote."

Most people don't even have knowledge of anything beyond the two parties.  So, claiming that those parties exist on paper is true, but they do not exist in practice. 

I remember walking through the Atlanta airport after the 2008 Presidential Election.  There was a small group of airport workers discussing their 'win' and I heard one girl say, "Who were those other Presidents on the ballot? I never even heard of any of them."  These are the people who are voting.  They only know two parties.

We could have a fifteen party system, but if people still only know republican and democrat, it's still a two party system.
