How About a Democratic controled house, Republican Senate, and 1 of each dem or rep president and a dem or rep vice president. AS history shows from the Clinton years when the Dems have control all heck breaks loose taxes shoot way up and they become corupt. When the Gop has control all heck breaks loose and the Dems cry we want 100% freedom. So if we put it as stated above we get abortion with common sence restriction like you need parental consent until 18 unless life threatning,You can only use welfare to get on your feet in hard times NOT TO LIVE OFF.(Minimum wage stays put) O.K. I know alot don't like that 1 but think if min wage goes up you think stores ex wont raise prices they will not take a lose.if they raise their prices raising the min wage wont matter as we just pay more. Then we have the illegals they would have to come here legally or go home. bet we would even get healthcare taken care of if they had to work together rather than 1 party having control. Both parties already Proved they can't be trusted with total control. thats why we ousted the dems 12 years ago due to corruption now we have the same problem with the GOP. SO we could have freedoms with common sence NO WAIT WE CAN'T HAVE THAT THEN THERE WOULD BE NOTHING TO COMPLAIN ABOUT.

I bet it would get accomplished better than it does now. If we just continue to go party to party NOTHING will get done ,But higher taxes with Dems and to many restrictions if Gop. There needs to be a meeting place in the middle. If they are forced to work together than they will. Or we just vote there but out of office.

How about going to a run-off system so that we can break the tyranny of two-party control?

Call it the Madison Initiative (after the Founding Father who quailed at the concept of political parties).

Um think you are a bit repeditive LMAO. DO you really think it would work? I must say 3 or more parties sounds like a bigger mess to me. Look at the parot years anytime a 3rd wing kicks in ppl on all sides cry foul. But great concept.

Yeah! that would be not a bad thing! Maybe we would see the rise of this thing called "states rights".

US government: Fight the wars, secure our boarders, follow the constitution, don't recreate or rewrite it. Represent the united STATES of America.

States: make your laws collect the taxes be responsible for what happens in your state. Follow the US constitution and abide by its laws.
