Phi Beta Iota: US citizens still living with the delusion that they live in a democracy need to be reminded that there are 65 political parties in America, and a two-party tyranny. The final nail in the coffin of US “democracy” was the disenfranchisement of the League of Women Voters by a “Commission” consisting of the Republican and Democratic parties. They did this because the League wanted to ask questions not revealed in advance, and wanted to include third, fourth, and fifth party candidates. In our view, no organization that hosts a political event with two or more candidates should be allowed to exclude ANY legitimate candidate, and certainly not the Greens, Reforms, Libertarians, and Independents.
