dc.description.abstractAs of late, the American political climate has been nothing less than chaotic. The last two presidential elections have highlighted that there is no graceful defeat, little middle ground, and even less collaboration between the two rivaling parties. The winner-take-all voting system has been twisted by gerrymandering and political campaigns are heavily focused around small groups of voters within swing states, devaluating the importance and effect of the votes of many Americans. The two-party system has contributed to many of the issues surrounding America's election system and checks and balances, resulting in a lack of political legitimacy and a distrustful American public. Therefore, I propose an American three-party system, with the Libertarian Party as case study, in order to raise America's political legitimacy and regain the trust of American voters.en_US
