It would do the US a world of good to have a strong third (or more) political party. More nuance needs to be added to the political discussion. Shades of grey. A choice between this one or that one barely qualifies as democracy IMO.

The way the laws are written state level it is nearly impossible for a third party to get on the ballot. The laws to get on the ballot are greatly in favor of the two party system. I'm not going to get into all 50 states but research what is on the books for your home state. It isn't pretty.
