Subject: RE: BS: the truth will out
It's not really sensible to hand the whole ball of wax to either guy when they each only got about 50% of the vote. Yes, I realize that's how the system works...or is supposed to at any rate...but I think it's a very bad system. It arbitrarily denies the will of approximately half the people at any given time. That happens because the people were arbitrarily divided into 2 opposed camps in the first place and then asked to choose between them.

Hell of a stupid way to run a society.

You could form a government without parties at all, and save yourselves this misery. Said government would function as a council that met in a CIRCLE of equal partners, not as a house divided into two opposing halves.

It's been done, you know. It is possible.

Ah, but what the hell...who am I to mess with your political war? Go get those rotten Redemopratublicans!!!

Destroy the b*st*rds, I say! :-)
