Is a two-party system the most effective form of government for the United States and, if not, what should we replace it with?
Our democracy seems to be held captive by corporate America and its legislative subsidiaries, the Democratic and Republican parties. For whatever reason, the people seem to embrace this system. Personally, I think the American people as a whole would be better off if we were represented in Congress by true representatives of the people, that is, a House and Senate made up of independent average working-class American citizens -- passionate, ethical, open-minded, and hard-working members from our local communities with no strong ties to big business or moneyed special interests.
