  • You’ll probably get your way every four to eight years


  • Unfairly limits the options available to lobbyists
  • Perpetuates false notion that the U.S. government isn’t controlled by a single top-secret, monolithic political organization composed of the world’s most powerful elites

  • Voter turnout generally higher in single-party dictatorships
