Is a two party political system - Republican and Democratic working in the US?
The Democratic and Republican are the two known dominant parties in the US and every citizen who is going to vote will either choose either one of the party. Seldom does an independent candidate ever make it and win.

I don't really recognize them as being all that different. They are like two competing sports teams--each represents essentially the same thing, each has minor differences, but still wants to win.
It works well to maintain the status quo and exclude genuine reform. You could say that's working for the US, but not for America.
No, all it does is create party specific idealogical barriers to real beneficial reform. The parties are more focused on disagreement than agreement and undeer the two party system policitcs has become representation of the few for the few.
