A two party system is a good thing

I hear people smash the two party system and how we need to have multi-party system. Out two party system works when they keep can"check and balance each other". We Congress or any State legislature is close to 50%-50% the parties "usually" (not necessarily true in then current Congress) learn to work together on the most important issues. The issues that do not pass usually are not vital issues.

It does not matter which party is in power, if there is a large majority then corruption is not far behind. Two examples of this is the Democratic controlled South during the 40's through the 60's, and republican Arizona during the 70's and 80's.

A strong third party candidate is important from time to keep the two major parties focused on the needs of the people. I know the major parties would ever thought of term limits or balancing the budget had it not been for Ross Perot.
