Political parties

Jump to navigation Jump to search

The United States uses a voting method which effectively creates a two-party system, especially at the higher levels of government.

Since the middle of the 20th century, the two dominant parties have been the Republican Party and the Democratic Party. Although neither party represents the American citizenry very well and both are corrupted to a great degree by the influence of money, they are not equally bad.

The primary contender for upsetting the current party duopoly is the Libertarian Party, which often wins small percentages in major elections, followed by the Green Party.
