makes sense. Yeah, the two party system sucks. Hell, politicians suck. I wish they would come up with a system that bypasses the politicians ability to dictate what becomes policy and what doesn't. Like have them write the bills but the public votes yes or no to enact it. Have dedicated polling places, open year round, throughout the country and let us do the voting, not them.

But then what you have is a Democracy, and in terms of sheer numbers it's only going to be a few years before conservatives lose all chances of a majority vote. Because the only thing the leftists have to do then is influence a giant number of uninformed voters to win the popular vote.

you can't force lazy and ignorant people to vote. I think the conservatives would show up, democrats not so much.
