Is Wikipedia a good source to reference in a paper?
Wikipedia can be a great source for gathering background information, but often it cannot be used as a legitimate academic source. The problem is that anyone can edit it at any time, so occasionally the information can be questionable. Academic sources such as journals and books are always the safest bet for good information on a subject you're researching.

Why is America a two-party system?
Although the Democratic and Republican Parties are our two major parties today, this wasn't always the case. Throughout history, many parties such as the Whigs, the Know-Nothings, and Socialist parties had major followings. Today, the two major parties dominate our political landscape, and though the Libertarian, Green, and Progressive parties have major operations, they often struggle to make it onto ballots or win elections because of structural advantages the two major parties maintain.

What is the difference between capitalism, communism, and socialism?
Countries that rely heavily on capitalism are nations that promote a free-market economy with little restrictions on international trade. A communist country often has a strong, centralized leader, and the government owns and operates the country's industries and natural resources. Socialist countries are typically ones that allow organized workers to participate in ownership of the locale's industries and guarantee a large publicly-funded social welfare program to its citizens.
