I feel like 1 party could cause more issues than just this..

at least it wouldn't **** with the whole world for there own opinions.

I have a better idea! Add two more parties.

just 2?
add 5 or 6. give people really a choice instead of this crap you got going on for to long now.. 2 parties are never going to be able to cover the idealistics of 300million people.
and that way 1 party (the republicans) wont be able to shut down the government on it's own. if they did then the leading party can make things happen with the help of the other 5 parties left...
it's better in all ways. but as usual is the usa to stubborn to make a change. you see this back in nearly everything.

This is called anarchism.

aka: sounds good, is bad. (it never works)

Oooook...Why don't you just stop right now with all that crazy talk, Emp

Yeah, it'd never work unless it was outlawed. There's too much money in it and the people that benefit get to make the laws.

There's already a bunch (5 major and about 30 minor). Doesn't matter.

Overall I'm not sure how relevant those other parties are. Even out of the other three of the five major parties besides Democrats and Republicans, how many people would know the names of those parties or even that they exist? The only other one someone might get is the Libertarians.

When we really come down to it we are essentially operating on a two party system. We would either need to give the other parties more equal footing to the Dems/Reps or do away with the parties.
I personally like the idea of having no parties, but that might be hard to implement in the current environment. We would be more likely to prop up at least one more party. Though the way things are going the Republican party might end up dying with another party filling the gap.

yea like any of those parties are getting votes when literally every american concentrates on just 2..
and the votes they do get are entirely useless and could just aswell have not been voted. no matter how you wanna turn it. on paper it might be more but in reality there are just 2. blame it on the media, blame it on the costs. it doesn't matter. if those reasons were really holding it back then why isn't it holding back parties in other countries?

Maybe because Americans are too conservative/blind/content/stupid to create or vote for a new party?

Our Democratic-Republic would still be intact, just not our Democrats and Republicans.

Bah, Democratic Republic is a euphemism for communist dictatorship.
