Your ARTVOICE Article asks "who controls our country"? The answer is obvious -- our Government (the alternative is anarchy). Who directs our Government? The answer is obvious -- our Politicians -- that is the goal of a Political Party. Who directs our Politicians? No one because the American voter is either Pathetic (unable to distinquish between our Political System and our Government), Ignorant (unaware that our Political system is criminally dysfunctional), or Apathetic (accepts our Criminally Dysfunctional Political System by voting for the lesser of two evils).
Solution -- the American voter needs to provide Political Oversight a.k.a. Government by the People, not Government by the Politicians.
Unfortunately, even if the Voter is not Pathetic, the Ignorance and Apathy are comparable to thick tar.
