About the Book

The United States has become increasingly polarized in recent years, although the concept of a two-party system is nothing new. This book traces the major parties’ utter dominance—within the highest elected positions all the way down to “nonpartisan” political offices across the US—from the founding of the Constitution through the 2020 presidential election. Even before the founding of the “modern” Republican Party in 1854 and the next 168-year era of Democratic-GOP dominance, the early decades of American nationhood were ruled in a similar manner by two major parties of the day.
This text is a comprehensive, fast-paced analysis of how the two-party system has grown to be such an affront to the ideals of the Founding Fathers and to the numerous Americans of today who appear to accept it as a fact of life.
