sprawl15: What the fark is their issue with drones? I really don't understand this, is it somehow better if we drop a bomb from an actual plane or shoot a missile from a nearby cruiser? It sounds like their real problem is killing people, but focusing it on drones is just bizarre.
tomWright: Johnny Swank: You know, these 3rd, 4th, 5th parties all have their heads up their asses, and I mean that in the nicest possible way. They need to concentrate on small, local elections and work their way up the food chain and gain credibility instead of this silly nonsense of just putting some schmo up for president every four years. Yes, it'll take 20-30 years, but they may would actually have a chance in hell of doing something effective.Some of us consider them the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th parties.SO far as working the way up, have you ever tried that?I have, The laws and rules are deliberately stacked against them by the R and D parties in order to prevent that.There was, once, a thriving multi-party environment in this country. after the nations political environment stabilized small parties arose. For about a century starting in the 1820's, until the laws were changed to encourage first-past-the-post elections and eliminate at-large congressional elections, replaced by single district offices.The entire system is rigged to make it defacto illegal for an alternative party to gain traction, without expressly writing it in the law.

WorldCitizen: BeesNuts: Cletus just brought a new idea to the table. Green Card Moratorium until UE is under 5%. Interesting. We can talk about that.Just hope if you're an American you never fall in love with someone who is not an American. And if you're an employer/researcher, you don't want the best person for the job person who falsified his resume but works a lot cheaper but rather hire by nationality.
sprawl15: Gary Johnson was farking furious about how he was elected governor. That was kind odd.
whistleridge: Potential audience: 760 million.Number of those who actually have a vote in the matter: 35 (assuming there weren't any hot Fark Independent™ threads going just then).

Kazrath: The media should be forced to air their debates just like they are for the Republican / Democrat showdown.
