can people get over the labels of "liberal" and "republican"?

Will Americans ever get over the ideas that a two party system doesn't actually work?

It works perfectly; it separates the the hippies from the KKK. You talk about the names like if changing them will change anything else.

Why paint yourself into a labeled corner? Support the ideas that make sense to you no matter who they come from. Or, better yet, propose ideas and try to garner support for them.

Systems with more than two parties present different problems.

labels aren't necessarily bad... letting labels dictate your beliefs is. I'm liking the libertarian party because a lot of their platforms coincide with what I believe.

I have yet to find any party that claims a lion's share of what I believe to be the right mindset.

Bingo.

Unfortunately, one-sided views garner votes while reality quietly sits somewhere in the middle.

The libertarian party most closely matches my views, but I don't base my vote solely on the candidate's party. Base your vote on logic.

I would delete Republican and replace it with Conservative from your post if you're going to use Liberal for the Democrat side.

I was pretty much a moderate growing up. I like issues on both sides of the political spectrum, but too bad the moderates usually get drowned out by the what I saw as the fringe elements (Liberal-Progressives & Religious-Conservatives) which now have grown to dictate most of the policies being made.

Both Parties sicken me with their B.S and for the last decade or so have voted Libertarian.
