or even with more than just two main ones... i mean for ex. this time around a lot of people including me felt that both the candidates sucked ass. anyways, no political parties would mean that people would actually think about what each candidate stands for and not just vote blindly along party lines without having a decent knowledge of the issues. or even if you are going to have parties, make sure that there just aren't two of 'em. i think with more parties, it's likely that more people would be interested in politics because the chance of them finding a party which would defend each person's interest would be greater. it's likely people will have to compromise and vote for the 'lesser of the two evils'. there would also be more debate and that potentially means improvement. both having no or having more parties would promote democracy as people's views will be more accurately represented in the government and that's the basic idea behind indirect democracy.
