comment Is there a Greek myth of Poseidon “dating” his daughter in the form of a dolphin?
I think you are right. The exact story wasn't part of the mythology. (Although, it is difficult to be sure on a negative.) It was just a parody of mythology that through together a lot of common themes.

comment Do most of today's democratic nations with two-party system exhibit a civil war in recent past?
I think all things considered, the "best" kind of Democracy is a parliamentary system with a single transferable vote. But, like I said, the creators of the Constitution didn't have the historical examples to realize that. The U.S. Constitution came to be after the Articles of Confederation failed, and they probably thought they might create another new system in the not too distant future.

The reason the U.S. system developed is probably complicated. First, I don't believe it really had example Democracies to look at, so it developed the system without an understanding that it would lead to a two-party dynamic. Remember, George Washington did not have a political party and didn't believe in them. Also, the U.S. system didn't start as such a direct Democracy. It started with the idea that the voters should literally vote for members of the Electoral College who would vote for the President. The great power of the president just evolved over time as a natural progression.
