Members of our 2 party system make laws and and regulations related to elections.  They have in the past and will likely continue to cooperate to insure that a 3rd party will not have a reasonable chance to become viable.

Most Americans however or either ignorant of or complacent about this.  So, for the time being, we are stuck with what we have.  OTOH perhaps the phenomena of social networking can have some meaningful effect on this, at some point.

As a fabrication of our own consciousness, our assignations of meaning are no less “real”, but since humans and the fabrications of our consciousness are routinely fraught with error, it makes sense, to me, to, sometimes, question such fabrications.

Love the French and am part french myself, but they strike out on Constitutions. They’ve had at least 14 more than we have so don’t have a great track record of constitutional stability.

We live in a changing world. Flexibility of thinking instead of idol worshipping poor laws is a good thing.

Perhaps they, like us, have or need a notwithstanding clause to break their own law when required.
