Eh, I noped out completely
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?
Neither Candidate was for me
so I just like. "I know how this is going to go..I lose either way..I am just gonna take a break."
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.
idk, i'm hoping for a rematch in 2020 , hillary vs Trump round 2.
be hilarious 😃
currently, the clickbait offers better ROI than quality reporting, I want to flip that around.
I would be fine with that Paradox
IRV can have some substandard results.
another year of not watching news
I could watch all of star trek
And IRV is really... not appropriate for the U.S. electoral structure
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
which is intentionally undemocratic
for non-nefarious reasons.
It would work for the primaries
IRV primaries actually make lots of sense.
which is were the real rigging comes from
we should have IRV and have all primaries on the same day
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
well, if the party itself wants their primary rigged, they'll figure it out.
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
@Risotto territory is the right unit of representation in federal politics though
I do Beck, Mahr, No Agenda and some youtubers
@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_.
Yeah the federal government is too powerful
way too powerful
And not just that
it exerts power over individuals
which is the states' job.
Looks like america could use a bit of freedom and liberty
too involved, power it should have, just not over the things it does.
I think it is reasonable for the federal government to be somewhat involved in the common defense
but we also have a considerable amount of technical separation of that power into state militias
that part is intact
Our military has gotten out of hand too
