The first problem with american politics is that we have seem to lost all care and regard for the other parties wants, and needs. We have lost the ability to say, "Ok, I want these three things, and you want these three things. How can we work together to make it happen?" In american politics now, the candidates only seem to care about their own parties needs and wants, and not on what is the best for the country.
The second problem with american politics, is that it has turned into a massive reality TV show. The fact that some one with out political experience can even think about running for president, (and win at that!) should not be able to happen. Candidates are no longer talking about how we can fix our country, but now talking about how he or she done not "look" fit to run the country. We no longer talking about the economy, or the housing crisis, but we have digressed to mindless discussion on topic that are not important at the time.
American politics has many flaws and problems with it, too many to bring up now. I feel with some strong change, we will be able to change the system for the better, and make sure that all parties needs are met.
