"Dissatisfaction with America’s dysfunctional political system has produced calls for alternatives to the Democratic-Republican duopoly. But a third major party cannot exist under the rules of America’s electoral system. A single-issue party might inject a new issue into American politics, but the challenges facing the country are too complex for simple answers. What America needs is not a new party but a new movement of reform, a movement that, even if it is largely identified with one national party, includes members of the other." (08/09/11)
