46. So what choices do you have?
The Repukes make things worse than the Dems.

And because of our "winner take all" system third parties replacing one of the major ones is a complete fantasy. It costs lots of money to run a national party and support candidates across our nation. Why do you think no other third party has become a major force in our political system? And if they did, they would soon be corrupted by Big Money too.

If you want to change our "winner take all" system to a parliamentary one, so that third parties can participant in our government, then you have to change our Constitution and that is extremely difficult.
