American Politics Bullshit

"Well, you see, Johnny, we have a two-party system."
"Well what's that?"
"Well, that's where you have one party write legislation, and the other party tries to sabotage it."
"Huh."
"Yeah."
"That sounds like a game."
"Well, I guess it is a kind of game."
"But what if there's something really bad gonna happen, like an asteroid's gonna hit us or something?"
"Well, then one party will try to write legislation to save the planet, and the other will try to sabotage it."
"Huh."
"Yep."
"But if we get hit by an asteroid, we could die."
"Yes, but if they pass legislation that keeps us from getting hit by the asteroid, then the other party will lose."
"How come?"
"Well, that's just how it is, Johnny."
"I don't get it."
