Republicans and Democrats really aren't all that far away ideologically (well, on social issues they are, but everything else is not too different). The big dividing line is the fact that neither side plays very well with the other.

Ok, maybe I shouldn't have been so vague. Do you at least see where I was coming from now?

Good one man. Maybe someday a third party will be allowed to debate the president without being arrested.

Actually yes. Two parties means you have more of the population represented by the winning party then not. You throw more parties in and then you have 20% of the population as beneficiaries to the rule of party Z. Smaller coalitions = fewer beneficiaries.

The voting system would need to change for any 3rd party to make any real headway.

The way things are, things will inevitably trend towards two.

Unless you have a third party that is somewhere in between, then everyone gets a little of what they want instead of half getting much more and half getting much less.

I'm actually shocked that we aren't all burning in fiery pit right now. According to pretty much everyone I know, the world has basically ended.


I need new friends.

Let's be fair, with the house and senate going to different parties, neither of which have a supermajority (needed to overcome any filibusters) and two fairly moderate candidates, the two would've done about 70-80% the same. Having said that, in that remaining 25%, I like Obama a lot better.

Nothing is going to change in merica. I don't see why so much emphasis is placed on the figure head.

It's about principle more than anything else. Obama represents a thoughtful move forward.

Also, now that he's not running for re-election, and the economy will continue to improve slowly but surely, he should be able to get more done.
