People always wonder why the Dems can't seem to get their shit together in Congress. It's mostly because we only have 2 parties, and anyone that isn't batshit insane at this point isn't part of the GOP, so they end up either as a Dem or independent/3rd party but caucusing with the Dems. So the Dems end up with a wide variety of folks in their party with a wide variety of opinions, priorities and constituencies. They just can't move in lock-step like the GOP does. That means they're far less effective than their numbers would seem to imply too. I'm still on the fence as to whether that's a good or bad thing.

I really hate the two-party system. That, along with gerrymandering, the fixed number of congressional seats, and unlimited corporate money (even from international corporations), are really fucking up our democracy.
