2016 sucked because I couldn't rank HIllary at the bottom

2018-09-27 07:25:41 UTC  

I took..a new rule in 2016

2018-09-27 07:25:45 UTC  

Bottom how?

2018-09-27 07:25:57 UTC  

once I know who is in the presidential election I nope out for the next 6 months

2018-09-27 07:26:05 UTC  

In ranked voting you rank candidates from who you want most to wh you want least

2018-09-27 07:26:15 UTC  

I watched all of MASH in the time I would have spent keeping up with news in that time.

2018-09-27 07:26:22 UTC  

I felt MUCH better.

2018-09-27 07:26:40 UTC  


2018-09-27 07:27:08 UTC  

MASH is pretty good for a tv show

2018-09-27 07:27:19 UTC  

Indeed, I tended to only really follow factual claims of a specific nature during the 2016 elections

2018-09-27 07:27:33 UTC  

Eh, I noped out completely

2018-09-27 07:27:39 UTC  

Ironically, though i've found Tim and othrs. I follow the news a lot less. It's too fucked to one side or the other and there's so much crap reporting it's like, what's the point?

2018-09-27 07:27:44 UTC  

Neither Candidate was for me

2018-09-27 07:27:58 UTC  

so I just like. "I know how this is going to go..I lose either way..I am just gonna take a break."

2018-09-27 07:29:04 UTC  

I am working on a piece of technology which will hopefully make it financially viable again for news organizations to do high volumes of good-quality general reporting, which conveys an accurate picture of how certain the claims made are.

2018-09-27 07:29:13 UTC  

idk, i'm hoping for a rematch in 2020 , hillary vs Trump round 2.

2018-09-27 07:29:20 UTC  

be hilarious 😃

2018-09-27 07:29:33 UTC  

currently, the clickbait offers better ROI than quality reporting, I want to flip that around.

2018-09-27 07:29:47 UTC  

I would be fine with that Paradox

2018-09-27 07:29:54 UTC  

IRV can have some substandard results.

2018-09-27 07:29:57 UTC  

another year of not watching news

2018-09-27 07:30:05 UTC  

I could watch all of star trek

2018-09-27 07:30:27 UTC  

And IRV is really... not appropriate for the U.S. electoral structure

2018-09-27 07:30:34 UTC  

I probably won't be following 2020. I'll either be voting Trump or 3rd party barring some act of God . Im not looking forward to the insanity of that election cycle given how crazy it's been this year for the mid-terms

2018-09-27 07:30:48 UTC  

which is intentionally undemocratic

2018-09-27 07:30:55 UTC  

for non-nefarious reasons.

2018-09-27 07:31:04 UTC  

It would work for the primaries

2018-09-27 07:31:08 UTC  

oh sure

2018-09-27 07:31:20 UTC  

IRV primaries actually make lots of sense.

2018-09-27 07:31:23 UTC  

which is were the real rigging comes from

2018-09-27 07:31:32 UTC  

we should have IRV and have all primaries on the same day

2018-09-27 07:31:37 UTC  

The electoral system has caused a lot of problems, its supposed to potect agains the tyranny of the majority but it just means parties fight over territory instead of actually helping their constituents

2018-09-27 07:31:56 UTC  

well, if the party itself wants their primary rigged, they'll figure it out.

2018-09-27 07:32:29 UTC  

I listen styx's videos while cooking up breakfast and getting set for the day, cause he uploads them at like 6:40 my time, and then i listen to tims vids after i get home and have supper. Thats about all the news i watch anymore

2018-09-27 07:32:39 UTC  

@Risotto territory is the right unit of representation in federal politics though

2018-09-27 07:33:02 UTC  

I do Beck, Mahr, No Agenda and some youtubers

2018-09-27 07:33:10 UTC  

@Risotto the problem is that the federal government has taken on too many inappropriate roles, which means that people suddenly expect it to represent _people_ rather than _states_.

2018-09-27 07:33:29 UTC  

Yeah the federal government is too powerful

2018-09-27 07:33:45 UTC  

way too powerful

2018-09-27 07:33:50 UTC  

And not just that
