    any Americans for a multi-party democracy here?
    Anyone want more than two choices for the rest of their lives?

    I think I am aware it is possible to have more than two parties...

    what I should ask is "Who among us gives a shit - and what can we do about it"?

    Uh. We have more than two parties. Encourage people to vote for candidates that are in less popular parties.

    While the smoke and mirrors game says we have a choice, we actually don't. It all comes down to who spends the most and has the best PR, and how gullible the voters are willing to be at any given time.

    Well, is it funny that you have only two parties to choose from?
    Is it funny you could say the same thing 30 years ago?
    When is the last time the President was neither Republican nor Democrat?

    There are third party candidates. I grant you that it is easier for such candidates to get their names out if they have much money to spend. Yet, for people who are interested in learning what is out there besides the Democrat party and Republican party, all that they really have to do is search the internet. I think that it is up to the average American citizen to educate himself about the possibilities. See below:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_third_party_presidential_candidates,_2008

    Green Party candidates are Jesse Johnson, Cynthia McKinney, Kent Mesplay, and Kat Swift.

    Constitution Party candidates are Don J. Grundmann, Bryan Malatesta, Max Riekse, and Diane Beall Templin.

    Libertarian Party candidates are James Burns, Daniel Imperato, Bob Jackson, Mike Jingozian, Steve Kubby, Robert Milnes, George Phillies, Wayne Allyn Root, and Christine Smith.

    Prohibition Party candidate is Gene Amondson.

    Socialist Party candidate is Brian Moore.
