I hope so! The two party state is failing - the old left/right divides no longer apply in most cases. What we need in this country is something akin to the 5-Star movement (Italy) that straddles the traditional party political lines. Generally, it's time for a change - I think many of us can see the status quo really only works for the few (the rest of us just work!). A truly sustainable economic model is what we need, versus the current crop's [email protected] like focus on GDP growth, at the expense of commonsense, the environment, people's sanity and wellbeing, etc...
