As long as were a country with 2 reining parties, were never going to get anywhere. It will continue to be Tit 4 Tat. We need something more like a 5 party system, to mix it up a little, so that we can move forward. Members of both parties will just continue to toe the party line, you know it, and I know it. "A HOUSE DIVIDED CANNOT STAND" A five party system would be better for the USA because of all the diverse people and cultures. Either we are, or were not, the melting pot of the world.
