Should countries abolish the two party political system ?

The reasoning for my argument is that with a two party system political system, is that politics has become a battle for power or to maintain that power, rather than its initial purpose which is to represent the people, act as a voice for the people and do what is best for the people
I get the fact that people have different ideology but in all honesty all ideas basically result in that group of people having maximum gain, minimum loss.
in the end i just think that government should stop focusing on the balance for power but rather focus on what is best for the people.

  • Nov 4 2012: No, I feel that a two party system allows for the system of democracy to work in a way that a Republican might appeal to others while the democratic side appeals to the rest.
    It is good to have a two party system because that's what has worked for years.
