I tried commenting on your blog, but it did not work, so I will post here:

The legitimate purpose of a government is to augment the individual’s right to protect his life, liberty and property with a collective power to protect the individual’s life, liberty and property. It is not possible for an individual to legitimately empower a government based upon a right he/she did not first possess himself/herself. While I agree that a multiparty system would more accurately reflect the desires of the people, those desires may well (and do already) violate the individual’s rights. In contrast, in an environment with the legitimate rule of law is intact (that is where the government’s powers do not constitute usurpations), it is more or less irrelevant how many political parties there are, because the rights of the individual are protected (if the rights of the individual are already protected, what is left to legitimately have a vote about?). I would therefore advocate more strongly for the return to the legitimate rule of law than I would for multiple political parties.
