Is it time to renovate our party system?

I got so frustrated with political agendas, ads, and my inability to separate fact from fiction, that for many years I just stepped away. Somehow it doesn’t seem right for me to avoid it any longer.

An interview with author Mickey Edwards caught my attention this week and really started the wheels spinning. Do the parties have more power than the people? Read or listen and let me know what you think. Is he right on? If not, where does he miss the mark?
