Today, American voters will go to the polls to elect the entirety of the House of Representatives and a third of the Senate. In essentially all of these races, the choice for most voters is less about Candidate A vs. Candidate B and more about the Republican candidate vs. the Democratic candidate. Because these are the only two parties with a chance of winning a presidential election, they are the only ones with any power in most other elections as well. A presidential system like America’s “greatest democracy on Earth” (a questionable claim at best) is essentially forced to be a two-party system. The problem is, this system has failed the American people. The solution? America should make the difficult change to a more balanced, fair and cooperative system of government — namely, a parliamentary system based off proportional representation.
