March 29, 2012: Russia Today: Two-Party Dictatorship: US choosing lesser evil? (Video)

A segment from Russia Today, the “first Russian 24/7 English-language news channel which brings the Russian view on global news,” tries to explain why American voters seem to simply accept our two party system the way it is instead of considering an independent alternative. RT’s Gayane Chichakyan reports that most US citizens believe the bi-partisan system is simply outdated, yet we’re unable and unwilling to vote for third party candidates, instead often voting for the lesser of two evils. An interesting international perspective on American politics.
