Please don't take this the wrong way, but it's good to hear that the problem of only having two bad alternatives is not just a US problem.

This is what is known as Duverger's Law in political science. In a winner take all plurality, two centrist parties always emerge.

This, in my opinion, is a very bad thing. It limits how we think. Anything that does not fit into the spectrum of beliefs held between these parties is cast out as extremist. Something needs to be done to change this if you ask me. Screw it, I'm voting for Ron Paul!
