Gosh, I'll admit, that's a tough question. I guess my main concerns about the two party system are that (1) change is very slow, and (2) there is no representation for voices that are outside the mainstream. Since both parties have to compete for a majority of the vote, there's always pressure exerted towards the center, and all other viewpoints are marginalized. It's actually a subject I'd like to learn more about. I wish BHTV would do more with political philosophy or political theory.
