^ Who did you vote for in 1988?

The idea that in a democracy everyone can only choose between POS #1 and POS #2 is absurd. Don't like that? Change the system, support IRV for a start.

If I had been American and born in 1988, I'd have voted Dukakis.

Well from a US POV, that's how America is set up- really a choice between A and B. Voting for C in the United States is useless, unless there's a miracle, candidate C won't win.

I fully support PR, for a start.

I don't know how they do it over there but they don't give new-borns voting rights here.

I voted for Ralph Nader in 2000 and I don't regret it. Obiviously it didn't make a difference in Nebraska but If I ran into someone from florida who voted that way I don't see how I could be angry with them.
 
They problaby wouldn't have voted for gore anyways, since about 50% of the country didn't vote at all, there had to be millions of people who would've preferred gore to bush but they weren't compelled to vote for him.

Democrats take the 51% progressive/semi progressive vote in 2000 for granted(Nader cause alot of people to show up at the polls which problaby helped them in congressional and senate races). If they were more interested in good policies that retaining power they would've tried to install some sort of instant runoff voting system at the various times they were in power.

Why should prospective third-party voters be effectively blackmailed into voting for a "lesser-than-two-evils" when the latter feels no obligation to subsequently change this sordid state of affairs in return? This alone should be more than sufficient proof that the Republicans and the Democrats are in it together.

Oh, and IRV would be a very poor choice for a national or state election system as it would require every vote to be tallied together, a logistical nightmare. A two-round runoff system (or, even better, approval) would already be a substantial improvement.

A sociologist has theorized that Nader actually added to Gore's vote count in 2000, instead of taking away.

My earlier comment notwithstanding, I do think that the site would be better off if Inks left his position. (The fact that the village idiot has dropped in to express his support for him only confirms this.)

I dislike Greens not because they cost Gore the election- I supported him, but I didn't particularly want him to win- but because they're far left idiots. I would say that to any far left idiot I may encounter, regardless of party affiliation.

And yes, I would like you fanatical leftists to become Greens- you and Jfern in particular, if you're talking about Forum members.

I'm flattered you would bump that, and there are plenty of equally crappy posts you could drag up from 2004 and 2005. It's nice to remember how far I've come.

Hey, maybe in four years, you won't be a dumb anymore, either. Smiley

Clearly the solution is to privatize presidential elections.
