This article lost me quickly. It rapidly turned into a discussion of the shifting fortunes of the Republican and Democratic parties, as if we could eliminate the mandates through a simple choice between the two approved parties.
The reality is that they were both more than faintly authoritarian. As long as those two parties have such a firm lock on our elections that a third party candidate has no real chance, we're going to go on being stuck with the uniparty. The system needs real change, not boosterism for either of the mainstream parties.
We need a system that gives us, as voters, the ability to be rid of both parties, not just on a theoretical level, but on a practical one as well.
