    but our system of selecting candidates by primaries essentially means we have multiple parties in the same group in the US.

    The advantage - we get to see the deals done before they are elected.

      The parties are coalitions that evolve over the years.  Not coalitions of different, distinct political parties, but coalitions of different political movements and ideas.  Every cycle sees some tweaks and adjustments, with the occasional major shifts like 1984

      There is truth on all sides. The question is how much.
