    In order to change anything, you need to think outside the box.
    I'm tired of the two party system we have for President,etc....
    I ponder will a third,fourth, even a fifth party would help or harm the political system we currently have?

    I think it will, the current system has it so locked up that a 3rd or 4th party really get anywhere. I remember back in 92 when Alan Keys was running for office, the president of the TV station said that the only two people that would be allowed to debate are the two with the most votes. Well since he was the low man, he was escorted out by the cops because he refused to leave the station.
