  1. Former GOP Senator says Republican don't want gun control

    Oxycontin is getting the job done, and making money at it too
  2. Pennsylvania Gerrymandering Case

    Really? You'd prefer that the gerrymandered Representatives pick the president? The electoral college is bad, but that would be much worse.
  3. Mueller and grand jury indict 13 Russians

    Quit being such a boot licker, for a self styled political maverick @TitanDuckFan finds it awfully easy to excuse every abuse of power associated with a silver spooned New York cad.
  4. Mueller and grand jury indict 13 Russians

    I'm glad we agree that Trump publicly asked that Russia hack his opponent's email.
  5. Pennsylvania Gerrymandering Case

    Get rid of primaries, instant run off voting ranking candidates in order of preference, secure it via block chain algorithms.
  6. Pennsylvania Gerrymandering Case

    Board members are selected from a majority vote of shares. Voting power is proportional to the # of shares you own. If you prefer the two party system then say so. All I'm saying is the single biggest improvement to American democracy would be to make the election of Representatives more democratic. The House is supposed to voice the will of the people, not a bunch of gerrymandered elitists ignoring half their constituents. Proportional representation is a simple improvement, could be tuned and voted on a state by state basis, and would require no constitutional amendments.
  7. Mueller and grand jury indict 13 Russians

    Or how about simply asking for Russia to hack his opponent's emails?
  8. Mueller and grand jury indict 13 Russians

    Collusion? Such as say meeting with a Russian lawyer offering to hack your opponent's email?
  9. Pennsylvania Gerrymandering Case

    Corporations are governed by proportional representation. You only hear complaints about how it won't work when people talk about actual people. Single Transferable Vote would do more to address complaints about American politics, and wouldn't require redistricting every 10 years. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Single_transferable_vote
  10. Pennsylvania Gerrymandering Case

    You could vote for a slate of candidates, top X win. Districts are only practical if you prefer a two party system.
  11. Mueller and grand jury indict 13 Russians

    Many posters are following his lead right off a cliff. Have some decency people.
  12. Mueller and grand jury indict 13 Russians

    Just a wee bit of wire fraud to start the morning off
  13. Pennsylvania Gerrymandering Case

    Congressional representatives should be elected proportionally per state. Get rid of districts, they are all inherently anti democratic.
  14. Another shooting today!!

    The problem isn't that we can't pass gun bans, it's that even if you suggest national licensing or magazine limits the nuts start shouting DUR NOTHING WILL WORK.
  15. Dems flip another House seat in deep red Missouri

    "The Movement" is the right tactic despite it's marginalization. Republics are anti-democratic, change comes from making waves.
