We Need More Countervailing Powers!

What would John Kenneth Galbraith say?

Our two major parties have both become too susceptible to the influence of $peech and so we need smaller third parties, what we've started calling LTPs over at A New Kind of Third Parties, that are protected against its' influence by virtue of their smaller sizes, lower overhead and greater decentralization of key decision-making.

This is not to say we don't need more scope for the influence and growth of minor parties who aspire to become (part of) major parties in the United States. But the appropriate countervailing powers against the $peech corroding our democracy are LTPs!

You may want to directly link to say, this article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Capitalism so people who are unfamiliar with the concept or Galbraith's ideas could get a better grasp of what they are.
