    Is the two party political system in the United States still viable, or is it too corrupted?

    The 2 party system has been corrupted since we allowed the Federal Reserve to print our money and borrow it back to us plus interest. The only way for our country to regain its greatness is to stop voting for 2 party system canidates and elect people who respect the Constitution and the liberty and freedoms our Founding Fathers created for us. If you hated the way the last Republican President and Congress shredded the Constitution, Obama and this Democratic Congress is making that look like child's play.

    It is so corrupted.  It's time individuals run on their values and beliefs without a tag or an organization attached to them.  Too many people vote party rather than person and too often even if a person isn't corrupt going in they are soon pressured into being corrupt by lobbiest and old school politicans.

    It is viable because it IS corrupted.  And that is because people are sheeple.  A republic (not a democracy) depends on an intelligent and informed electorate.  Most voters are neither.  So get used to the corruption.  The best that can happen is that it all falls down.  Which it looks like is in process.

    There is no such thing as a "two party political system." This "system (for lack of a better term) is comprised of a monolithic body of corporate elites - evrything else is just smoke and mirrors.

    Lobbyists and the large corporations/corporate elite run congress.....the members of congress are just their puppets. They are slaves to those who give them $ as political contributions.....go look at open secrets website and see what kind of $ we're talking about and what corporations/lobbies/pac's do the contributing. We need campaign finance reform NOW!!
