The Republicans loved the two-party system. Voters consist of only two factions: Liberals and Conservatives and they know that.
As a conservative the Republicans don’t believe they have to “earn” your vote.....they expect it. For as long as there are only two parties that matter, they don’t have to do anything to earn it. The result...nothing changes and the same old tired Republicans (or whoever they groom for the positions elected) goes on year after year after year with no fear that conservatives will vote for any other party.
However, something has started to happen. Conservatives faced with no choice of a Republican candidate simply did not lower their standards and vote Republican...they didn’t vote for all. Many Democrats did the same.
Our national leadership has become “a right of passage” for those of wealth, power and money on both sides and it will only get worse with time.
Not true? Well explain how the Republican party is considering grooming Jeb Bush to continue the Bush dynasty just like the Democrats supported the Kennedy dynasty.
That leaves a third party with 0% and no votes at all!
If the third party looks to be successful, it will simply attract enough factions from the other two parties that it becomes the big player with 50% + 1 vote. The remaining parties will then coalesce to beat this new upstart.
The very design of our federal system, combined with our ancient traditions, allows only 2 parties ~
It's the math, not the law!
