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.  The 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.
