Two Party System?

How did we ever limit ourselves to a two party system? With the breadth of opinions and the diversity of the American people, how did we let ourselves be limited to Republican v. Democrat?

Even more fundamental is the question of how we allowed our principles to bend to the imperative to win at all costs. How did political correctness dilute our ability to stand and defend our beliefs?
While I'm disgusted with the current administration, I'm even more disappointed in those that I have admired backing down, abdicating the truth in favor of milquetoast civility. Compromise is one thing, but there's nothing wrong with holding to a principle.

I hope the Democrats will have learned a lesson from the last election. Even more, I hope that the voters will stand behind a candidate that one can believe in, that has a view of the future and a plan to make it happen. A little integrity wouldn't hurt either.
