I found this while perusing the interweb

http://www.americanpolitics.com/030499dictionary.html

A good description of our "two party" system.

Good find.  Agree with much of it.

We so badly need out of our two party system.  A number of the founding fathers cautioned against the beast of a two party system.  Very relevant today.

^^ This has been true for far too long. But how do we change? We've gone from electing statesman to electing self-preservationists who's only goal after winning election is to win the next election.

gotta get the money out of it.  It's all lobbyists for various corporations and other entities.  Until that changes we are stuck.

Agree and Agree!

It has gone down this path for so long it will be extremely difficult to change it.  Dang Newton's First Law!

I would like to see major campaign finance reform.  End the money and the total BS/lie filled commercials.  Set some type of hard limit on funding and spending.  think of the good that could be done with all the money that is spent on elections.    

Require more nationally televised debates, with REAL moderators who take control of what is happening.  

I'm no fan of Trumps, however, one possible positive that may come from his term is that maybe there will be some type of uprising and change, as well as moderates from both parties working together.  It's a long shot but sans hope we have nothing.

The crap going on in the middle east is happening because they were allowed to brainwash their people over hundreds and hundreds of years.. They had to believe or die..

The United States created Democracy for a reason.. Never to be controlled by a single person, King, Queen or a God..

Freedom for the German, Russian, Irish, Scottish, English, Mexican, African, Spanish, Italian, Greek and many more is what we are about, we are all Americans...

Gay, Lesbian or whatever... Americans don't try to exterminate those that are different in a gas chamber.. We protect them..
