That makes the process undemocratic. If they expend a lot of effort to prevent a third party, they are telling you that a third party might be effective. Despite many attempts to create third parties, this has failed.
It could be that it is possible to create a third party and that failure was lack of political appeal.
A third party would have to position itself as "neither DEM nor REP" and pander to the the politically disenfranchised people who no longueur vote at all, and those that are taken hostage by either of the 2 big bourgeois parties.
It could be that the game is entirely rigged and bourgeois politics is 100% spectacle without political substance.
In that case you have to create your own separate elections, that they can't rig. And the battle for democracy then becomes a 2 stage battle. First winning the masses over to consider your new election system the most legitimate one, and the second to actually win the elections inside your own system, without rigging it.
If you went for a new system it would probably be easier to have just an election lottery. Everybody would be allowed to sign up and representatives would be chosen by the luck of the draw out of all the people that signed up. This system is simpler to set up and much less vulnerable to manipulation, and the bourgeoisie doesn't get to use their advantage in promoting political candidates, because there is no electioneering. This would be set up as an opinion poll that seeks to gain influence. if you gain traction with this you could ad more democratic features like polling everybody that signed up for their policy preferences.
