I am not a member of a political party because while I tend to vote to one side of the center line most of the time, I don't agree with this particular political party on every issue. I wish we as American citizens had more than two choices, because on some days (and when it comes to this election in particular), I can't fully support either candidate.
In this article for the Huffington Post (written back in January of 2012), Bo Peabody writes about how our powerful two-party system weakens our politicians (those from both parties) and is failing us more than either party. Regardless of your political affiliation or status as a voter, I think the article (which is concisely and smartly written and easy for those who aren't particularly politically-savvy - like me - to understand) is worth a few minutes of your time. Perhaps when you're done reading you'd like to join me for a pizza party?
