Ask HN:Did the parties machine-learned to get votes and evolved to be the same?

First sorry my English. I am foreigner and I have the impression (as south-american/european) that the 2 political parties in America offer very little difference in their proposals (kind of harmful for a democracy). But this may not be a natural result when you have only 2 groups competing for the votes? They will optimize their proposals to limit harm and try to avoid any real change because this would likely offer an advantage to the other side?
