RE: Make America Nice Again
I think we need tiered voting to allow the eventuality of a third party or independent prospect to be possible. People need to believe that they can vote for a third party but have their vote count for one of the mainstream candidates if the third party candidate goes nowhere. Like I should have been able to vote for Jo Jorgenson as my primary with Joe as a fallback incase she wasn't competitive.

Sorry, got carried away.

I'm still waiting on the TL;DR of that novel, @MilesAbbott81

I'm not gonna show any interest if you don't communicate your ideas more concisely, is all.

I suspect it is going to take a great independant - someone free of party bias.

What we have now is a syphilitic fuckfest with only two whores for hire..... Regardless of which one you pick - you are not going to enjoy the results.

I agree. I'm surprised that I do, but I agree wholeheartedly. Dems, Repubs, who cares when the system the two parties are operating under is like choosing between cholera or gonorrhea, when it's gotten so bad that they're both of them starting to show significant signs of antibiotic resistance to treatment. But enough with the figurative language.

The unchecked ramblings, starting with the "free" syndication of radio hosts spewing bullshit into the airwaves without critique has poisoned discourse that did follow a long time afterwards. Same deal across the pond, BTW.

Interesting. Is this a spin-off from direct democracy? According to the wiki article about ranked voting, Australia has used this system since year 1918.

Lol.

They won an election - not a war. 

Come back in 4 years (of nothing but partisan bickering) and tell me what a great day this is.


You eternal optimists are cute....

I was referring specifically to Elf’s list. It strikes me not so much a willingness to reconcile as a demand for unconditional surrender.
