Political Parties, Part 1

I've been wanting to do a post like this for some time now. Every now and then I think about the two party system we have in the US and why I detest it. First of all the differences between the two parties are, at best, overstated. Second, our electoral system is rigged (unintentionally, I believe) so that no one can compete with them. Third, we have terrible ballot access laws that are (intentionally) rigged to make it easier for the two major parties to run candidates. I'll post some more on political parties tomorrow, this quasi-rant isn't over yet.
