That's why Bernie Sanders is under the Democratic party.

I'm not disagreeing that we need to revise our voting system, but you're wrong that it prevents a third party from winning. Read up on the history of the Republican party.

Technically first past the post doesn't prevent us from having a successful libertarian party, it just means that it would end up displacing one of the existing parties.

Easier said than done. One of the things the two major parties agree on is keeping out third parties.

The Replicrats have the power to prevent the rise of a third party. The reason that they have not often used this power is because they have not needed to (the Libertarians, Greens, even Perot could be contained without being too heavy-handed about it). But if a real third party challenge begins to arise, our rulers will crush it, even if it involves killing Americans, and a lot of them (think Civil-War-casuatlies, i.e. tens of thousands dead).

The only appeal of Trump is that he isn't taking money from the establishment.

Because he has plenty of money from being part of the establishment on the more profitable side of things. Dont get it twisted.

So vote libertarian. It's not like your vote matters anyway.

Part of the problem here is Congress, part the bureaucracy, part the executive branch. I think much of the difficulty has to fall at the doorstep of Congress, though, since they make the laws and have such an important part in the budgetary process. As for the bureaucracy, changing the rules by which mid-level employees are hired and fired would be a huge benefit, as well as insuring that all judges had no more than a 6 year tenure (or 5 or 7), so that they could not "own" a lifetime position. They are essentially bureaucrats, like other Federal employees. Lots of other things, as well.

Set up a gallows on the front lawn of the Whitehouse and every government building for the sole purpose of hanging ANY politician who chooses their own personal interests over that of the population, you will get a better government. Accountability works wonders.
