in my opinion, america's two party political system is broken. it's a the false left-right paradigm.both parties have long since been bought and paid for by people who do not have america's best interest in mind.
this in turn keeps the american people busy arguing, in most cases, about trivial matters, never realizing what is really going on around them and how bad they (and the country) are getting screwed.
really, think about it. in america, the land of "freedom", "opportunity", and "choice" we only get two choices on who and how this country is run. hmmm, sounds pretty good until you realize that that's one more choice than dictatorships usually have.
