Multi-party democracy in USA Politics
At the very least, an actual "Independent Party" a "Christian Right Party" and a "Progressive Party". I'm so tired of having to split hairs with Democrats, having to defend actual Republicans, and hearing people bash the Religious Social Conservatives. Everyone should be able to have their voice heard. If you want to build a coalition, that's cool, but watching the Greens and the Reform party get kicked around every political season sucks. The two party system we currently use is being abused, and so is the populace that purports to be represented by it. We constantly compromise ourselves and our beliefs to shoehorn our political will into this watered down "democrat" and "republican" system. I say bah, and bring on the real elections. It's not a new idea, but it's a good one. Bonus: lots of parties means lots more parties! Who doesn't like a party?
