There are comments, both on the internet and in conversations, that it is time to have more than two political parties. Much of this is due to congress’s unfavorable standing with the public as well as all the bipartisanship being shown lately. But, as stated in the article that is linked below, if we look beyond the immediate machinations of our politicians, we will find that the root of this problem began in 1913 with the adoption of the 17th amendment. When you read through this article, I think you will find that no matter how many political parties we have, the same problem will exist. That problem could be summarized in the saying “power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” I am amazed at times that we, the people, seem to act in the moment instead of trying to find the source of whatever problem we may have. Read the article and understand that the present political problems we have, were created by us, the people. Remember, a constitutional amendment cannot be put in place without the approval of the majority of the citizens.
