Two Parties No More
There are many ways the two party system in the USA fails its citizens and the world. With the Republicans on the ropes, many people are daring to dream they will be out of power for a long time. My fervent hope is that they actually implode and are no more. Its not that a one party system would be better even if it were the Democrats - it would undeniably be worse. Rather, it could give rise to new political parties and establish new lines of demarcation between the parties. Today's issues of what separates a Democrat representative from a Republican representative is just to fuzzy and not aligned with differences of opinion in the electorate.
