I think it’s obvious that either the American politcal system and ones like it were a mistake from the beginning, and the so-called American experiment has failed to evolve towards democracy. I am referring to how America has had two parties for 200 years, and all that has changed is that the parties have changed names and drifted on their issues. A structural change to go from elitism to an enlightened popular democracy of an Athenian nature has not occured.
How can America scrap the two part institution and turn into a multi-party system? Many Americans vote for their party, they are retarded beyond words. You don’t know how retarded they are until you look carefully at the voting patterns, and politicians have every right to be condescending towards American voters. The morons who vote straight party line like they’re cheering for their favorite sports team, amd who brag about voting even though they don’t even know anything about the minor candidates they selected except for their party, are an obstacle to democracy.
I think a multi-party parliamentary system would force voters to study the differences in the parties and realize they need to stop being ignorant of the issues. They wouldn’t just vote straight democrat/republican anymore, you have to look at the goddamn part of the political spectrum, and learn all the damn lingo. Congress wouldn’t be so polarized, and it would be easier for all of the Americans with IQS of 80 to realize that not all conservatives or liberals are their enemies. Yes, they would actually be able to sidestep the most corrupted parties while still finding fresh parties their hat represent their views.
Gone would be the illusion of choice via two choices and a write in canidate. There wouldn’t be a false dilemma for nearly every vote. You can have 3 choices, 4- 5 even ! And shut up about these parties forming left and right coalitions same old why change anything? It’s not the same because having more parties makes voters stop being so goddamned tribal in their thought process- when the tea party and socialists have their own parties, the vasy differences along the political system are more transparent even to the biggest idiots. The obstructionists can become more apparent to the idiots.
You traditionalists who prefer presidential oligarchies are blindly blocking structural reform. You are why write in candidates won’t become viable. Do you want to live in a non-sustainable empire or do want a peaceful democracy? You have to ask yourself that question every time you decide to favor the current institutions which support the familsr oligarchy, over taking control of more affairs for yourself.
Sadly, there are few proven democratic systems, however, parliamentary systems are much more likely to give 3 or more viable parties. Until u know of a better system I think the average American would be better off with us switching to it.
