Voters registered as independents suffer the most. The choice for indies is between two candidates they had no part in selecting, that were selected by the most extremist voters in parties they don't belong to.
Seems to me there isn't much difference between the Republicans and the Democrats once they get into office. They only take a real different stand when they are the party out of power. They get elected, and it is like, "the show must go on", meaning the escalation of government control.
