In the United States, how can we change/influence politics to allow more people to be represented and have a say in the legislative process?
In the United States there are currently many people who do not have a way for their voices to be heard by the people making the laws for the country. People who live in the US are usually pretty moderate when asked about the issues but we are forced to pick between one extreme or the other. The power to vote is basically a farce when we can only choose between two parties that will not look out for our best interests once in office anyway(with the exception of a few good legislators.) What can we do to change the system and to make our legislators more accurately represent our interests while getting people more involved in the legislative process? Is it possible to craft a better democracy without complete overhaul or revolution?
