but how does change anything? It is still going to be an R or D that wins.

Maybe for the first couple elections, but eventually people will figure out that minor parties are a legitimate option and vote for them. The white house will still likely be stuck bouncing between R and D but seats in congress and even possibly the senate could start to be held by minors, and if enough are then it becomes impossible for either of the majors to get a majority and it forces them to negotiate with said minors to pass legislation.
