    The Constitution lets us vote for whoever we choose. The fact that no independent, libertarian, or green party candidate has never been elected is because not enough people vote for them.

    Political parties are simply unions designed to empower people by uniting in numbers. The constitution allows people to gather in numbers to push their agenda. These unions do not take away freedom to vote our conscience but people tend to grasp onto one union or another.

    To amend the USA's Constitution requires 3/4 of the states to vote For the amendment.  That is not going to happen with regard to changing how we do Presidential elections.

    We have always had independent candidates for President in the US; they just rarely get any traction.

    Parties are not mentioned in the Constitution. In fact, if the Constitution was properly followed the President and Vice President could be elected separately regardless of party.

    Source(s): 12th Amendment, for the moron so quick to the thumb down button.
