Political history of the United States
The two party political system in the United States means that one or the other party runs the government and the country on the basis of the election results. In addition, in some countries or regions of the country, one of the parties may be the main period. United States, currently Republican, was firmly Democratic in 1960. Utahans were once Democrats. Political winds always bring change.
Voters change sides too. Hispanics voted for George Bush in 2000, then for Obama in 2008. President Lincoln freed the slaves and blacks voted Republican, while Democrats support the Civil Rights laws to end racial discrimination in 1960. Republicans never regained the Black vote.
Remember, the Reform Party of Ross Perrot? Well, it was more of a movement than a party. Some Republicans argue that Bush lost to Bill Clinton H from third party factor Perrault. What goes around, comes around. Ralph Nader and the Green Party, it may be worth Al Gore the presidency in 2000. As important as these two events were voting, party leaders and "Third Right or Left" feet are more political note in the history books and in the minds of people. Now it's the Tea Party's turn.
The U.S. political system is unique in the 'The more things change the more they remain the same.' Political changes in the rest of the world is certainly more dramatic, even painful. In some countries, winning is everything because the losers may be forced in to exile.
