      Loved this article. The system is terribly broken and something has to change. I was listening to NPR in my car and they were discussing gerrymandering. I had never heard of this term before and I found it both fascinating and distressing. Seems like all elections are rigged!

      “The two-party system has evolved into an existential threat to American principles and institutions.”

      YES! DOWN WITH THE TWO PARTY SYSTEM. ITS DESTROYING US!

        Such a great Independence Day read! Couldn’t agree more with Amash. Would love to see a trend of politicians and voters eschewing the two party duopoly we’re currently stuck with. The time seems ripe with Trump leading the Republican Party and the current lineup of Democratic presidential nominees.
