Status of American Politics: May 2003 Archives

by David Remer May 23, 2003 --

One need only read the party platforms of the numerous political parties registered for the 2000 presidential election to realize that American politics is very factionalized. The very growth of political parties over the last couple of decades indicates that the two major parties, The Democrats and The Republicans, have left a great number of citizens feeling unrepresented. This fact is heightened by the shamefully low level of eligible voters actually turning out to vote. The 1996 and 2000 year elections showed the lowest voter turnout since 1924, some 70 years ago.
