Why do we need 435 Representative and 100 Senators as Washington Congress members, each with staff and office costs? Congressmen serve only one purpose: they serve to block one other side. Couldn’t we save a lot of money with 53 Congress members blocking one another??
Yes, we need two competitive parties (and less corruption). Single-party rule and partisanship invites abuse.
We just don’t need so much of it.
Q: What do the Congressional Republicans of 2014-5 and the Ku Klux Klan (or Apartheid) have in common?
A: No Jews, No Blacks.
(No Muslims, No Hindus, and No Atheists, either. And these are not even their biggest electoral challenges, which are Hispanics.)
The Republican party is not (I hope) racist, but this is not a good situation if they want to win elections.
