Seems like the Congress parties are demotivated in general.
Well, as I said, the parties are not monoliths. There is a very general level of ideological connection within them - this varying over time and circumstance. The Democrats in the 1930s, 40s and 50s were a nationally dominant party - and wildly divided between the New York based progressives and the segregationists of the aptly named "solid South. That division being wider than the norm and resolved, ironically, only when the GOP nominated Senator Goldwater - thus setting in motion, with a lot of twists and turns, a process by which the south became Republican by the 1970s.It is not that the parties are "de-motivated." Rather the parties are going through a period of fragmentation - not unlike in the late 19th and early 20th centuries - caused in part by the populist turn of the culture. So action by both parties is slowed - this further aggravated by the normal internal divides and structural differences induced by the Constitutional and Federal systems. (For example, Senators appeal to a different and wider electorate than do Representatives.)
Just because it “could” happen, doesn’t mean it “should” or “would” happen...
@Girther10 Tf are you talking about? I said many things in that post
No you barely scratched the surface. All of that is understood at the start. But you haven’t made a case for how another party would be any better, in fact, what you said would only add more division and make it harder to choose one..
@Girther10 The point of my reply was what you said was ambiguous, now I know what you were addressing. Another party means no bi-partisan politics, sure multiple parties could theoretically team up, however they typically don't. You always see the same trends in our government, if the Democrats support one movement in Congress 100% of them vote for it and 100% of Republicans vote against it. Meaning that literally things only pass (major issues at least) in favor of whoever holds a majority. Take Trump for example. He was a acquitted because the Senate has a Republican majority. If they didn't, he'd be convicted. The government shouldn't operate on a who has more power basis. More parties mean the voters have more people that they can identify with. I'm center right, I just barely identify with the Republicans more than the Democrats but pretty much NO candidate I really identify with will ever win the Republican nomination because you pretty much always get a deep state puppet from the Democrats, and an extremist from the Republicans. I don't want to vote for the people that some uneducated boomers put forward, but unfortunately that's all I can choose and so many people have this dilemma. And no it doesn't add to the divide it mitigates it because when everyone's views are being represented, having a divide makes zero sense. The parties would be forced to appeal to the entire nation instead of just barking their biased talking points and hoping that people who are gonna vote one way regardless just outnumber the other side. You don't seem to realize that other countries already have this type of set up of multiple major parties. How can you make any progress when it's just morons fighting all the time? That's not how the US's government is supposed to work. We have one of if not THE most intelligent and well thought out plans for government to ever exist and the dumbasses we elect make a mockery of it because a two party system makes it so easy for them to do so
Also you didn't make an argument about how it would make it worse so don't give me that bullshit
“Uneducated boomers” - you just lost any shred so integrity with those two words. Nice job...

Let's hope the favorable parties are influencial enough. Here (I mean India), has the multi party system and most of it seems to be creating unnecessary mess. Many parties doesn't get enough votes but they manage to spoil the results of the elections by deteriorating the number of votes for other major parties. Coalitions, dirty politics; tables are always turning.
Maybe, in your system, more proportional representation would solve those issues.
Where are they hiding? I never heard about them. Just the Republicans and the Democrats.
get your face away from the TV media and do some searching on it. you'll find them.
