I’m not sure what the big deal is. I know everyone says they want to make a difference, but come on. If you’ve been paying attention at all lately, it seems like there are only two options: liberal or conservative. They’re always fighting with each other and doing stupid stuff that makes me mad. They’re always the same, too! I want something new. Mental health workers label behavior as disordered when it is deviant, distressful, and dysfunctional
1. Hold on. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves here.
The difference between the two parties is extremely important. There are many things that one party believes that the other doesn’t, and I can guarantee you that, depending on which party you favor, your entire outlook on issues like abortion and gun rights will be affected. We can even separate issues themselves into a liberal vs. conservative viewpoint! For example: public education is an incredibly important issue, and both parties have many different opinions about it.
2. I’m on board with your nostalgia.
I like the fact that two parties exist, and they’re both fighting over some issues. I like it when they disagree earlier at the town hall meetings (I may have watched one or two of these live), and I like it when they get together to discuss their problems in great detail. I think politics is important because it brings us together, and I’m happy to watch as it does so.
3. I’m not saying we need a third choice, but
I’m not saying we need a third choice, but I would like to see something different.
4. The Tea Party makes up their own party!
I find it so ridiculous and funny that they claim that they’re Republicans and Democrats when they don’t really even have those in their party name. They’re the Tea Party, which is itself a political party. It’s just that there aren’t really any Democrats or Republicans who vote for them, so they have to do it themselves. They are pretty funny, though. I love the signs they hold with their goofy messages, even though most of them could offend someone.
5. Why not?
Why can’t we have more parties? Can you imagine if we had 12 parties instead of just two? Wouldn’t that be amazing? They could all promise to create change and make America great again, and then we’d choose the one that made us really happy! We could even divide up into groups of three or four to compare their promises and see which one makes the most sense!
6. Whoa there. Slow down a bit, buddy.
I think it’s great that you want people to vote for the candidates they really believe in, but there’s nothing wrong with just having a two-party system in the first place. The two-party system creates a balance. They check each other and make sure that everything is okay. This system has worked for centuries, and I don’t think we really need to change what we have going on right now.
7. Okay, so when someone new comes along, then?
Who knows? There are always new people entering the political world and running for presidency every four years. This year is no exception! We can only wait until November and see who wins the big election.
8. I guess that makes sense.
It’s important to understand that a lot of these candidates may not even make it through their primaries, so it would be silly to worry about them winning the whole thing until after they’ve even won the nomination! You know what they say… the race isn’t over until it’s over.
9. You’re right.
It’s always nice to have some new ideas to think about, and it’s great that we can even discuss the possibility of a third party. I would never want the country to be shut down because the two parties weren’t getting along with each other, but I like how we can still see some change.
10. You are so right!
I mean, there have been many candidates who haven’t been elected but have still made an impact by raising money and getting votes. I hope that all these new people entering into the political world will make a difference, even if they don’t win their race. The least we can do is talk about it, just make sure we keep the current candidates moving forward.
11. I agree with you 100% percent percent
Good work! Let’s keep this discussion going and hope that there’s a new third party soon!
12. Well, thanks for weighing in. It means a lot!
I know that there are some important issues that need to be discussed here, but I think there’s too much time we’re spending on this instead of on the important issues that people actually understand: jobs, education, and the economy.
I know that there are many opinions about politics, and I feel that everyone has a right to their own. I think that change is inevitable, but as long as the two parties can continue to work together and discuss all the issues in a civil manner, there should be no need for a third party to approach these problems.
