The Americans have two party systems which have two political parties thus the Republicans and Democrats. The political and government systems of the United States have great power in the legislature and Supreme Court. A two political and government system is where the two political parties dominate politics in a government. The two party systems may be described as an arrangement in which almost all elected officials belong to one of the two major parties. In this case the majority wins. The two parties have a duopoly thus they almost share power equally (Philips, 2011). Politics is viewed as the use of power from the public choice and pluralism. Corruption in this system may not play role in the systems because the voters only have to decide between two political parties and they are stable compared to having a multiple party system. The parties are moderate and appeal to the center to win the elections. Since it is a people’s choice government the winning party bands with the minor party to prevent dominant of power and balance the power

A two political party system is controlled by the plurality of electoral systems to the disadvantage of smaller third parties, just like the Republicans and the Democrats control in the American political system. The winner takes all system (Philips, 2011).
