Woah, that is a big picture of my face. But thank you so much for my reply! It means a lot to me that people are reading and responding intelligently to my articles.
I totally agree with that Bismark quote. Obviously I know that we are too far into the two-party system to change it, but I just thought the questions had to be raised. I probably will end up going the route you go, but I saw my piece as more of an invitation to start questioning how our two-party system works and how it can change.
Thank you so much again, and go ‘cats!
Thank you for commenting, Julia, and for the kind words. Your piece succeeds in raising interesting questions about our two party system. I argue, though, that our system is great, not because of tradition (we’re too far in), but because it is the best way to support a conglomeration of competing interests and beliefs.
I’m glad you’re choosing to join one of the two parties, and I’m very happy that you lean nearer the Republican Party. There are a lot of exciting things happening on the right. It’s good to have you along.
Thank you, charismaticword, for liking “The Liberal Creed (a bit of satire),” and Corvus (Corvi) Black for liking “A Letter to Ms. Julia Cohen.”
