The two party system is a tyrannical dynasty in the United States of America. As a passionate young individual with exposure to people throughout the country, I have a theory. I speak to so few people who are genuinely pleased with any presidential offering from any major political party. The harsh reality of America the past couple of generations is that there is no real competition. The parties have divulged so far from their original beliefs, and I believe that it is time to allow parties with different ideals a true chance to compete. My theory is that nearly all Americans believe that a party realignment & inclusion of new "third" party candidates would benefit our political system. 

We face a dilemma every year-- if we vote for a candidate who is not representing the Democratic or Republican parties, our vote is essentially wasted. It does not matter who we think the best candidate is, in order to be heard we only have two choices. Why must it be like this? In 2021 and beyond the access to material to understand the plans of various candidates is limitless. So many young people who do not have a lifetime of loyalty to a given party could find a group of people who align with them. 

Finally, we really are at war right now. There are misinformation campaigns by both sides. Rather than encouraging people to think freely we assign positive or negative traits based upon ones political affiliation. I believe this "war" we are in is a direct result of a two party system. 

Listen, personally I do not care about political affiliation as long as you have a good heart. I do not write this to insinuate that democrats or republicans are inherently bad, I just believe that too many people identify better with libertarian, green and other smaller parties to have as little representation for these people as we do. 

My petition is to the Commission on Presidential Debates, and I would like them to include at least 1 candidate in future presidential debates that is not representing a major party. I believe that the national stage and normalization of expressing beliefs outside of democrat and conservative would serve extremely beneficial in repairing the deep wounds and divide that our country faces today. 

Best to all of you have a great day!
