  • I agree with the one party system.

    We are Americans and we should be united. Candidates that run for office would have to run on issues that they think would be good for America and it's citizens. Then the voters would have to start paying attention to what the candidates are saying and then make a decision on who to vote for. It would require the citizens to do their homework before they vote.

  • It is Flawed

    We are faced with a choice of two extreme sides. Niether one is willing to compromise, and there's no real third option. What we are left with grid lock that results in flawed solutions due to the lack of compromise. With out any middle ground we over look serious issues.

  • The Rise Of Extremism

    Because of the fact that our government works in two absolutes, we have seen our chances of reasonable politicians able to compromise between each party become scarce. This is due to the fact that the elections are more about the party rather than the person. Also, parties are the reason that swing states are some of the only places politicians campaign in during the election.

  • Three party system

    Republicans and Democrats argue too much on issues that are not very important. Both parties are getting too radical and a third party is needed to let the silent majority have a say in the government. A third party would also stop the deadlock in Washington so things could actually get done.

  • The government is screwed up!

    There have been many Presidents trying to form companies and reforms over the years, but because Congress and the President couldn’t agree, nothing got passed and many issues in the country are left as issues. Reforms like the Climate-change agreement, Social Security reform, and the immigration reform. While many consider the system to be better than the political systems in most other countries, it still has its flaws that don’t make the system perfect. No matter how much people vote the candidates only think about their own power and how they can exploit you. The candidates just go and argue like toddlers fighting over the last cookie. Nothing will ever get done

  • The government is really screwed up

  • Creates a toxic environment

    Becomes a pissing match of who is less shitty and we get party whiplash and vote for the other party because the "last president was the worst" vote for someone who speaks to you not corporate america the front runners are the most popular candidates not always the best which is good that we don't have direct democracy

  • We're limiting our options as Americans.

    Do good ideas only come from Republicans or Democrats? Limiting ourselves to two opposite parties often leaves conflict. Some times ideas, policies, etc., are at a stalemate because one party doesn't want to concede to the other. Only have two parties precludes our ability to hope for a third, possibly more efficient party. Is the third party is not, then voters would still pick red or blue, so nothing's lost. If anything, we're just increasing our opportunity for a better United States.

  • America's two-party system is not flawed because this system provides constitutional and democratic stability.

    I disagree that the America's two-party system is flawed. A two-party system means there are only two parties in the elections for the people to vote. This system gives more accurate results in comparison to the other multi-party systems. The Soviet Union failed a one-party system. Moreover, it also provides more political and democratic stability to the country.

  • No, I do not believe that America's two party system is flawed, it is working in the exact manner for which it was created.

    The two party system gives Americans the ability to have checks and balances in place. Granted the system may not appear to have been working properly recently, but a closer look will prove otherwise. Were it not for two parties and their constituents having different values and priorities, it is entirely possible that America would not have fared as well as it has. Recent economical climates shows that the American system is working.

  • I believe that there should be a no-party system.

    What I believe is that there shouldn't be any political parties, why, because all political parties in turn wind up doing is causing a bias that says "I'm voting for (Republican/Democrat?" And if you ask why it's usually them telling you that they would never vote for the opposing party, therefor leaving us with a political system based on the childish idea of boy/girl cooties, which in other words they basically go off and say "eww (Republican/Democrat) cooties." The reason I believe that a no-party system would be so much better is because you would have such sheep brains people would be forced to think about what their voting for, rather than them deciding between red and blue.

  • I do not feel that America's two-party system is flawed.

    I do not believe that it is the system that is flawed. I believe it is the people in the system themselves that are flawed. Politics in general has become a popularity contest instead of a government. When government first came about it America it was supposed to be for the people by the people. The problem now is that the government no longer works for the people, it is now the people that work for the government. More like a dictatorship then a democratic republic.

  • Tyranny of the Majority more important than anything else

    It may seem like the system is gridlock, or fails to work, or does nothing that is quantifiable in major quantities. However, for those reasons, it succeeds. The only reason the two party system idea came about is to represent the two major ideas of political thought. Those that believe we should change and be open minded (liberals). And those who believe change can be too risky, and there is only objective truth, not relativity (conservatives). Some of you may find problems with those definitions, but they are close to accurate. The two party system represents these two, major, distinct views of political thought. A one party system would champion only one idea, that of the majority. The result would be that the minority would be repressed and denied the ability to initiate changes they want to make. Or even worse, to have to conform their view to the majority. Russia's one party system failed because it did not see other points of view and examine itself, thereby leading to decadence, corruption, and the downfall of the system. Those who advocate a one party system are usually in the majority, and would be happy with the changes made by the one party. Because the majority must be hindered in achieving domination of the country, two parties are needed for America. That is why I say no, the system is not flawed. In fact, the gridlock and lack of change show (except on major, super important policy initiatives that are backed by pressing need) that the system works perfectly.

  • Federalist Paper Number Ten

    Parties give everyone a chance to express issues that they find important. James Madison wrote Fed paper #10 on this, he believes in factions. Our rights to express ourselves are given in the first amendment and if we were stuck with a single party, it wouldn't be fair to other American's.

  • It's keeping us together

    We are the country perfectly balanced with two parties. One cannot have more power without the other refusing. It creates a balance that no other country has been able to perform. The connection between Congress and the President is strong enough in which both parties must compromise, and not one party could get its way.

  • Gridlock Can Be Good

    While I agree that oftentimes, there seems to be an excessive amount of gridlock between the two parties, this can be a good thing at times. Many of the Founding Fathers who were Federalists explained in The Federalist Papers why they designed the Constitution the way they did. They designed the Constitution with political parties in mind, knowing that greed and human factors would come into play. Therefore, by having the two party system, our rights as citizens are protected. If it were a single party, any law would be able to be passed and to be passed quickly. Any body who has this kind of power could easily infringe upon our rights. Think about if we had a third party or even more multiple parties. People already complain that there is enough gridlock and confusion in government with the current two parties. Just imagine the confusion and standstill that would go on in government if that were to happen. Therefore, the two party system accurately represents that majority American ideals and protects our liberties as citizens at the same time. I'm not saying it is perfect, but with mans errant nature, no government will be perfect. I believe the two party system does the best job and that is why I am in favor.

  • Not a fan of minority rule

    The benefit of a two party system is that the parties must strive to appeal to a little over half of the voting body. When you fracture the voting base, then you only need to appeal to a greatly reduced percentage in order to get enough votes. Secondly, the US isn't prohibitive of other parties. New parties can form at any time. It is up to the politicians to appeal to their base.
