Two Party Duopoly, Political System
Please, visit this Facebook page.
A latest Gallop poll shows that majority of Americans is now fed up with two party political system. Contrary to common belief, the making and maintenance of two party system is not an accident. It is a part of big and organized money game. The reason for this is same as with any other monopoly. It is much easier to control and manipulate political parties and voters, with least possible number of political parties.
Hence, it is easier for big money to keep hold on our political system. If you give a little deeper and careful look to the system, you can easily understand what I am saying. Take, for example, the elections process. Since, the two big political parties are so big, rich, with corporate money, of course, and powerful, they can easily manipulate the elections process, any way they want without any consequences. Even, in 2012 elections process the same old stories are being repeated.
Big parties are still successful, in keeping the non-mainstream candidates of their party, out of the loop. Have you heard of pro-life activist Randall Terry of West Virginia, blogger Darcy Richardson of Florida, Perennial candidate and 2010 Democratic U.S. Senate nominee Jim Rogers of Oklahoma and attorney and perennial candidate John Wolfe, Jr. of Tennessee. They are all, former or current, Democratic Party candidates running against president Obama in 2012 Democratic primaries. Do you even know that democratic primaries are going on, right now, as well.

What do you think? You thought you have no choice, except Obama and Romney? Right? You actually have a much broader choice. Only reason you don’t know about these candidates is because big, mainstream media did not chose them for you. My question is, how long we will keep falling for what big media chooses for us, instead of voting, based on our own choice, knowledge, preference and conscience?
We are already seeing the huge hazards that two party political system poses on us, our country and nation. Major politicians from both parties, only care about their own, their party and big money, special interests. While country and it’s finances are going down the drain, they are running round the year campaigns and constantly busy in political bickering. This is because, like any other aspect of our lives, when competition is limited, the people at the top, feel no threat to their status quo and they can do whatever they want, regardless of what their voters want, what they promised and what they said in their campaigns. Beside other major flaws, our political system gives us one major deception, which is the leadership concept. We are still being told that strong leaders do what is good for the country and nation, without any regard to the public opinion. Caring for public opinion is termed as populism, by big media and mainstream politicians, which is supposed to be a bad thing. Meanwhile, nobody tells us, if not public opinion, then, who decides, what is good for us, and our country and nation?
