    3rd isnt an option because liberals don’t want it to be. They are comfortable with the status quo, the same status quo that keeps everyone oppressed. Both parties intentionally are controlled opposition, to maintain the power structure that they’ve spent decades building. Republicans provide you a boogeyman, and Democrats proclaimed to be your savior, so that we are constantly fighting each other instead of fighting them.

      Yep, that’s at least a big part of it. We need to break out of this but not by forfeiting and letting Republicans win. Putting energy toward ranked choice voting or something is probably wiser.
