Two Party System Outsider Test for Politics

text size A A A

Uriah was born and raised in Provo, Utah. Good Mormon stock. Salt of the earth. As conservative as the day is long (on summer solstice anyway).

Utah, as you know, is a red state. As red as they come. Redder than Rudoph's nose.

Sig was born and raised in Portland, Oregon. Secular, highly educated. Only uses kosher sea salt on his vegetarian tofu frittatas.

Oregon, as you know, is a blue state. As blue as they come. Bluer than the deep blue sea.

November elections, they be coming.

But Uriah and Sig had better not be votin'.

AT LEAST NOT UNTIL THEY COMPLETE THE TWO PARTY SYSTEM OUTSIDER TEST FOR POLITICS.

Perhaps something like "Wife Swap". Uriah and Sig have to live in the other's constituencies for at least two weeks. And while there Uriah must watch "Democracy Now!" on PBS and Sig has to listen to Rush Limbaugh.

The health of our democracy is at stake.

But this is not only about Uriah and Sig. It's about you as well. You too must subject yourself to the two party outsider test for politics.

Hey, don't complain. Up here in Canada we've got five major parties.
