Why do Americans hold two conservative party as largest political party?

In the UK we have two main: Labour and Conservative (one is liberal the other is conservative), and a third: Liberal Democrat. In France you own two main parties, the Parti Socialiste (liberal) and the Conservatives. One is moved out the other is right-wing. In Spain you have the Partido Socialisto, which is currently in power, and the Conservatives. One is moved out the other is right-wing. This is the same for Portugal, Germany, Austria, etc. Also for Australia, there is Labour and Conservative. One disappeared, one right-wing. But many in those countries, especially here surrounded by the UK, we see the USA having two big main political party, both of which are clearly right-wing. The Democrat Party is very conservative compared to Europe or Australia/NZ. The Republican Party is just far more right-wing than the Democrat Party. Essentially, we see elections individual between two right-wing parties, in which one is merely far more right-wing than the other. A Democrat candidate would never be elected in Europe, Australia, or New Zealand, because they are too conservative and right-wing. Even more so for a Republican Party runner.
Europe is so far into the Abyss..our Liberals do give the impression of being Conservative to you.
Making the other guy pick up the tab for your personal responsibilities is not "middle of the road" where I live.
The US only pretends to have two political party, both the Republicans and the Democrats are coalitions of very different groups of people and which do people have aligned themselves to have historically been as much to do with local history as next to ideology. For example, the New England Irish communities supported the Democrats in opposition to the 'Anglo' Republicans, who they saw as remarkably much like their traditional British protestant enemies. Forced conscription during the Civil War simply reinforced that opinion. Until the 1960s the Dixiecrats, the Democratic Party in the Southern states be very much more right-wing than the northern Republicans, and at this time there be a historic re-alignment on more obviously left / right lines across the US. Even very soon a northern Republican is likely to be more liberal than Democrats in more conservative regions. The US also periodically throws up 'shadow' party, like the Tea Party, which often exist alongside and ostensibly as chunk of a larger party even though challenging the widely held opinion. Remember Militant Tendency in the British Labour Party?
It is because of this that US Presidents sometimes hold cabinet members of the opposite celebration. Obama kept a couple of George W. Bush's people even though they are Republicans.
Given the history of Britain in recent years I'm not sure that we haven't get two conservative parties too, although neither of them as far to the right as in the States. Source(s): http://www.america.gov/st/washfile-engliā€¦ Because, from the moment we enter academy (or arguably, from the moment we're born) we're socialized into thinking "the American way". Political socialization in schools is adjectives to all countries.

America was born as a "big business" country. The Founding Fathers purposely put superfluous checks on democracy in ways that prevent the government from escaping from the hand of the elite. Additionally, when the constitution was written we be still reeling from "taxation without representation".

Thus, an overexaggerated and anachronistic sense of the governing body as evil and the poor as lazy.
what are they i can solitary think of 1 ....the conservative party.....the republican participant has turned out to be a wimpy party

surrounded by my opinion both the parties are far too moved out wing
Labour are not a liberal party and never have. Labour are a social democratic jamboree, quite different. Liberal is not metonymy for left-wing. Labour are far too authoritarian to be described as liberal.

In terms of US politics the Democratic Party are left-wing and the Republican Party are right-wing.
you are correct, there is completely little difference between the policies of both parties, however, you have to get the message the terms liberal and conservative have a completely different goal in the US in standard and specifically in this stupid category. the conservative trolls on here have unquestionably no idea what it means to be conservative or liberal for that business, and the liberals on here are mostly advocates of liberal social policies.
as far as statements on fiscal policy both will throw out numbers to validate their positions but repeatedly the numbers are specious at best.
calling Obama a socialist is simply a red herring (pun intended).
The Democrats are far from conservative. They're a leftist party. They're not conservative by any respect.
The two body system is why our nation usually has such a peaceful verbs of power.
The two parties balance respectively other out when they are forced to co-operate.
I do not understand how the UK and Europe handles so tons parties. They seem to be
so inefficient.
wow, i never knew that the US was so smaller number liberal that the other countries in the world. I always thought that the democratic get-together was pretty liberal, because I have other lived in America. I never realized how they looked to race from other countries. that is very interesting. I would love to revise more about the political parties and government in countries other than the US. freshly to see how they differ : )

As for your question, I don't have a concrete answer so these are just speculations. It may be because in Europe the countries are so close together that those countries and their empire communicate easily. This would allow for new accepted wisdom to form and develop quicker. The US is more isolated in that it is in the western hemisphere. In Europe u can drive to the country subsequent door for dinner. The US is more isolated from different countries and thus liberal ideas such as those in Europe and such may not develop as at the double.
For example, I do remember that minimum wages, maximum hours and social security plans were already developed within Europe when the US first introduced it.
Thus I think it is more important for those in the US to start branching out internationally. Learn from our neighbors all around the world and use that education to improve America

This was a devout question; gave me like mad to think about...
For starters, many of the people who come here were thrown out of England and Europe for being crazy or a criminal.

But that aside, Howard Zinn (RIP), an American Historian wrote a book call The People's History Of The United States. Zinn argues that the American system was set up this way premeditated to make sure that not much ever changed, to give the figment of the imagination of political choices while maintaining the status quo.
The United States was designed for White Property Owning Males. The right for Blacks and Women to even vote here is a recent piece. The rights of workers for a 40 hour work week and decent working conditions was experienced after much bloodshed. The ruling elite which designed this two party system have no intention of anyone running the show except the rich and this has worked.
The two party system give the ordinary American the illusion of Democracy and freedom, as long as he does not want to be too free.
And Americans live within an information void. We are isolated geographically from Europe, travel is difficult and our corporate owned media feed them what they want them to know. Our media works the same process as the two party system. Americans think that one see is "liberal" while Fox and a few others are "Conservative". And the media play this beautifully to the authority of corporate America. One side does appear more liberal or conservative on the surface but they are really two sides of the same coin. Ask an American if he has ever see the inside of a Palestinean Refugee Camp on eith of the media outlets.
Then every four years we go to the polls and vote. We draw from all excited about it, thinking things will fluctuate while the ruling elite laugh at us. 5% of the population of this country presently control 95% of the wealth and the gap is growing wider.
Until Americans run it upon themselves to look beyond the lies they are told by both parties, the so called experiment surrounded by Democracy is doomed.
