Political partiesĀ 

My take away from the 2016 election cycle is that the two party system should be discarded. For years now, we’ve been forced to compromise our values and beliefs just so “the other party” wouldn’t win. However, the breadth of ideologies in this country could easily allow for four, five, or even more political parties. On the left, you could reasonably expect to see people align on either a left leaning populist party or a socialist party. Conversely on the right, you could belong to either a right leaning populist party or a constitutional Conservative party. Libertarians and environmentalists could become more realistic forces in a multiparty system. Everyone should be able to choose a party that more closely aligns with their beliefs so that their values are represented.
