Political Realities

There are several political realities that I want to set down, for whatever good it might do.

  1.  The general, overall, structure of voting in this country dictates that we will always have a two party system, unless that structure is changed.
  2. ┬áThe two parties, although they may have certain weaknesses in common, are not “just the same” or “equally bad.”
  3. Election results are almost always close – a victory of 53 — 47 is a landslide victory.
  4. Therefore, your vote really does count, because turnout is often/usually the key factor.
