Is the U.S. Bi-Polar?
Here I go breaking rule #9 of my 10 rules of blogging. But I couldn’t resist the temptation when I heard today Lou Dobbs making an interesting comment. He said:
“Both parties are on opposite sides of the same bird. And we know who’s getting the bird.”
So it got me thinking about something that I’ve always wondered. And that is — would not the U.S. be better off with a 3 major party political system like Canada has? Wouldn’t that give a voice to middle-of-the-road voters instead of two extremist parties wagging their tail at opposite ends of the pole? Or would that make too much sense (or perhaps none at all).
I was just wondering. What do you think?
