  •  I think it would be better (4+ / 0-)

    if we had more than 2 parties, so when one of them goes batshit insane, it's not a big deal. That and better representation and more varied parties.

    •  My observation of multi-party systems (2+ / 0-)

      is that you just get more totally crazy factions, all jockeying to be part of the ruling coalition, which then has to placate each of the members on their particular issues.

      I would rather have our various issue groups within one Democratic Party, with the idea that we are looking out for each other on the basis that helping each helps all. In sharp contrast with the War of Each Against All (as Hobbes put it) on the Republican side.

      Whatsoever therefore is consequent to a time of Warre, where every man is Enemy to every man; the same is consequent to the time, wherein men live without other security, than what their own strength, and their own invention shall furnish them withall. In such condition, there is no place for Industry; because the fruit thereof is uncertain: and consequently no Culture of the Earth; no Navigation, nor use of the commodities that may be imported by Sea; no commodious Building; no Instruments of moving, and removing things as require much force; no Knowledge of the face of the Earth; no account of Time; no Arts; no Letters; no Society; and which is worst of all, continuall feare, and danger of violent death; And the life of man solitary, poore, nasty, brutish, and short.

      Back off, man. I'm a logician.—GOPBusters™
