    All the talk of bullying, and no one mentions the 2 biggest bullies of all, the Democrat and Republican parties. No matter who you are, you have been subjected to government bullies. The Dems are bullied by the Rep and Rep are bullied by the Dems, if you are neither party, you are bullied by both the Dems and Rep.

    Why do we have the 2 big bully system in America? Without it, there is a chance the majority would unite into a two-thirds majority and take control of the government instead of the money system controlling our government. Yes we need to take bullying seriously, government bullying first. Once these bullies are gone, most reasons for the rest of the bullies out there disappears.

    The two party system has become unworkable, in my humble opinion. If one compares our system to the British-Canadian (Parliamentary) system,for example, the differences are very striking

    i believe the more parties the better and I think perhaps the British/Commonwealth did get it right after all. We could Lear much from them?

    The multiple party system does work in Europe, but maybe not here, why? In Europe the government fears the people, here the people fear the government, why? After a politician is elected in Europe, their majority is watching what that politician is doing and they are also watching what our leaders do and other modern day countries leaders do, here, once we cast our vote we feel we have done our job until next election, in Europe because their majority is watching, they will unite for a protest in the street when their leaders go against what the European majority wants, putting their government in fear of a united majority until their government gives the people what they want. Because our majority believes we are number one, we have become very very lazy as a majority when it comes to what our government is "really" doing. The European majority are not lazy when it comes to their government and the worlds governments, they are very informed unlike us. You can ask them our leaders name and most modern day countries name and the European majority will know. Our majority, we are lucky when ten in a row get our presidents name right, much less any of those ten knowing a single leaders name out side of America.

    When you have been convinced that your country and government are number one, you end up with a lazy majority that does not have a clue to the rest of the worlds reality. Sad we are as a majority, but I believe there is light at the end of the tunnel. With all the world term oil and extreme weather patterns caused by our governments policies, our majority is starting to grow some eyes, slowly, but eyes that are using the internet to find the truth about our system, when enough of us learn the truth, then our government will be fearing us too, even with our 2 bully system, a united majority is still the power, at least for now here, but once the system gets away with changing our constitution like many of our politicians talk about doing, even our beloved President spoke these words, then we could lose our power that we still don't use but the European majority uses everyday. "Give the majority bread and show and you will be in control" is what our system has survived on for far tooo looooong. I don't know about you, but the show has gotten old and the bread is stale.

    I agree; however the major problem is not the way people elect the government; no it is the "money" honey!! As long as the system is solely based on pure "buying" your way in, then even if you have 10 parties it will not work. So the only way it will work is first start term limits, second get the money out of it (provide via government money about only 100K per to be elected person; no private money or industrial money which leads to bribes) three completely disclose of the persons who run, their backgrounds and knowledge, fourth no lobbying of any kind. fifth no religion involved in the process.
    I guess this will never happen; the "buying in" process is loved way too much here.

    The buying in, and the majority just sits back while the government changes all the laws that once protected the majority from a corrupt government. Man, our majority really are evolved non eyes, "dumb Americans for sure". But you really can't blame our majority, blame the politicians that allowed Fox News(America's Hitler Media) lies to be plastered all over "our" air waives. When is someone going to sue these liars? When are we going to use our constitution to fire the politicians that go against us and our constitution? Soon I hope, for all our sake.
