The two parties are the same, the republicrats will not tell you George Bush and John Kerry were in the same secret society and both want to make the government bigger.

Exactly!!!

A lot of people get caught up in this false situation, it's the same in UK.

How many political parties are there in the UK? Is it like the United States where there are many but only two are allowed media coverage?

There are 3 main parties, and a handful of smaller parties.

The voting system is similar to the US, FPTP (first-past-the-post). This favours the big 2 in UK and squeezes out the others.

Every party gets some sort of media coverage, they are allowed a certain amount of free of charge air time.

Sounds good but essentially it is the same as the US.

Labour & the Conservatives are the same.
