The political system of America has always been its weak point, not its strong point. The people are its strong point.
But the people will be leaving America for better places. Nobody wants a sinking ship. At most in 20 years, America's share will be down to 10% with 5% of the world's people but also the most uneven distribution of wealth of any large nation. America will be in big big trouble because its political system is for quarrelling, not for solving problems.
As for political parties, they are other minor parties besides the CCP . here is a short note....

they don't fight in public, if that is what you are looking for.
Now, we have 60 years of experience of how to get things done. They dont do slip shot work anymore. Every recommendation , every policy is well studied. The system works because the people are patriotic. That is the final test. It is not a system of laymen...It is a system of experts. How to put it? It is like China Inc......People has no problem with national level policies and announcements of changes. People's problems are always at the local level.
"Justice is the first virtue of social institutions, as truth is of systems of thought." - John Rawls
"Those who will not reason, are bigots, those who cannot, are fools, and those who dare not, are slaves. " - Lord Byron
"Knowledge makes men gentle, and reason inclines toward humanity; only prejudices cause these to be renounced." - Montesquieu
the point is.....America is a yang culture. A yang culture needs a world with unlimited resources for it to conquer. A yang culture begins to die when resources become scarce. The American political system is for quarreling not for problem solving. , not for harmonious living, not for co-operation and cannot make proper decisions even if its life depended on....that is why it is unable to solve any major issue in any logical manner nowadays...ceratinly not in a democractic manner...by democratic, I mean benefiting the majority of the people and in accordance with the will of the public..
