Just wondering what those from countries with multiparty rule feel about your system.

I'm pretty much getting sick of the two party system here in the U.S. It just doesn't seem to work anymore.

I almost made this a poll http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

In short, yes.

IMO, more choice is a good thing, mind you Im not 100% backing any political party here in Canada. We currently have a minority government containing the Conservative Party, Liberal Party, New Democratic Party, Bloc Quebecois, and Green Party.

Hows that for buffet style politics eh?

I often wonder the same thing. There really doesn't seem to be much difference between the two parties once they actually get in office. They claim all of these differences while campaigning and then usually just go on with the way it was before once they are there.

I figure that if someone wants to see what the U.S. political machine consists of and how it operates, just watch 'Mr. Smith Goes to Washington'.

Except that nobody comes to the rescue in real life. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif
