America's "Two-Party System" Has Jumped The Shark

The simple fact is the Two-Party System simply cannot cope with the complex, issue-based reality of America and the world in the 21st Century. It’s old programming that worked when the world was over-simplified by the Cold War into Democracy versus Communism, Freedom versus Totalitarianism, and the Self-Appointed Good versus the Evil Empire.

Trump Slams "Voter Suppression", Cites "Oversampling" As Evidence Of Rigged Polls

"When they leave the polls alone, I'm leading. But you see these polls, they are polling Democrats," Trump said, adding that "It's called voter suppression, because people will say, 'Aw, gee, Trump's out.'
