Why Not?

I watch the German election process, and I think.....

Why Not?

Why can we not have several parties in the United States?

Of course, the predominate structure gives rise to power and influence to the "major parties"....The GOP & the DEMs.....

I remember when my favorite John Anderson, of Rockford, IL ran on the "independent ticket".....And lost by a large margin.

Why cannot this country mount an obvious and needed campaign to provide us a choice?

Germany mounts at least 4 parties....Perhaps only two are major, but they need a collaboration of at least two parties to effect a control.

We NEED the multi-party system to make the democracy work!
