Well I'm not addressing the corruption issues in my response. But I think that because we have two major parties, it actually has worked pretty well over the long run. In that I mean that we have sort of worked toward the center. Not saying it's what many people would want, but if for political expediency if nothing else, both parties have their strength with the centrists. This allows a modicum of stability in our government unlike some systems that swing more wildly.
