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
the federal government should deal with defense of the boarders
yeah, too much is bought at the federal level
and the stuff labeled in the constitution
Dumping trillions of dollars into Raytheon's mouth like it was a baby bird
everything else like Abortion, Marriage ect should be off limits.
well, and the interpretation of the interstate commerce clause has... clearly overrun the drafting intent.
well Risotto that isn't just a military thing, we are too involved in the world in general *cough United nations*
the problem is that in order for the interstate commerce clause to be reigned in at this point, the constitution will have to be amended to make it _extra super clear_ that the thing that has changed, is that we suddenly realized that nothing was supposed to have changed.
but now that we changed it, we need to change it again so this time we can be double-plus certain that it really wasn't meant to have changed in the first place.
Alright, let's get a SCOTUS who has the balls to make the needed changes *420 women accuse them of rape*
69 Have come forward, and 351 others will soon follow.
