    To those of us having lived in countries with proportional representation, the root cause of the issues in the US are obvious: Duverger’s law.

    Problem is that new parties with new ideas have no chance of getting elected in plurality voting systems and those tasked with fixing the voting system have a vested interest in not changing it.

    “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

    Note: the PEOPLE not the Corporations, and the GENERAL welfare, not the welfare of the 1%, and the blessings of LIBERTY to … our posterity… OUR posterity, OUR children and OUR children’s children, not Donald Trumpet’s alone.

    Hello? Right wing ideologues on the Supreme Court? Turn off the Murdoch-Fox Noise and ABSORB THE WORDS ON THE PARCHMENT. The Country was conceived to GROW and GET BETTER, not slide back through the Civil War to any fantasized days of share-cropping ‘glory.’ Hello?

    People are free to associate with anyone they chose but when you have SC inJustices fraternizing with some of the most subversive members of society, the Kochs, you will naturally have a problem getting any ruling from the dolts that benefit anyone but their closest friends and allies. This was why they were appointed not elected, to eliminate outside influences. Seems it may be time to impeach Scalia. Too many contradictions and violations of the public’s trust. Then again he’s a reliable ANTI-citizen vote so the right-wing loves him.

    That’s why Registered Independent voters now outrank either party nationwide!
    25% Republicans
    31% Democrats
    42% Independents

    A really big step in the right direction would be for states to uniformly let a bipartisan committee do the redistricting of voting districts based on the census and demographic considerations, not on how likely they are to vote one way or another. Also we should make sure everyone can vote. The goal should be to get one hundred percent voter turn out. That is what a real democracy should do.

    If Jon Stewart dedicated a few months prior to November 2016 pushing the 18-40 year old’s to vote as they saw fit, “but vote or shut the *%#^ up”", the right would lose a lot of states overnight.

    Well said, Singe.

    If it is an incumbent, vote for the other one. Get rid of them all and take OUR government back.

    You would think in this day and age of technological wonders we could get rid of the electoral college and districts and such and count every vote to get a true reading of the peoples’ wishes.

    Thanks, festin. Good to know someone else sees the reality of the situation.

    @Brock Olee

    You just want to get rid of the ones you don’t like? What if someone like those very same ones and votes to keep them? Does that count as a vote, too? This ‘right-wing’ and ‘left-wing’ hate mongering is why it isn’t working.

    93,000,000 out of the work force,150,000,000 on government benefits.Mostly paid for by the 1% who pay over 50% of the taxes.According to the IRS website.Over half the population pays no taxes.How long do you think that will last?Over $18 trillion in debt.Close to $20 trillion by the election next year.41 % of that owed to China.35% owed by government agencies to other government agencies.Talk about worthless paper.
    I got those numbers from a post by the liberal poster,sizeofapea.Who seems to have changed to wiseorator.
    It seems the liberal failed to see the significance of that chart when they put it up.
    Can you say Greece?
