I honestly think the entire government needs to be destroyed and rebuilt.
Never happen. And even if it were "destroyed", it would never be rebuilt, at least not in the image everyone would want. It'd be more dictatorial, or anarchist. Unless that is what you're thinking.
A two party system is as moronic a system that there has ever been.
Technically the US isn't a two-party system. There are many political parties. It's just that the two main parties dictate everything, from votes, to debates, to everything. It's actually the only thing Democrats and Republicans come together on. They dictate everything, and the public, for the most part, allows them to. I think it's more out of fear. For Democrats that someone will be voted in not supporting their cause, and for the Republican being branded as a traitor to their party.
Look at the two parties: one is diverse (if not lazy), and the other is mainly white and old. Democrats outnumber Republicans yet Republicans are loyal to their party where as a Democrat seems to be more loyal to themselves and their wants and needs (look at all the liberal states with Republicans running their governments).
As a minority, I suggest a concerted effort of NOT voting... Yes I know, a lot of people died and went through a lot of BS in order to get that right. But at this point it doesnt serve its purpose.
Many people already do this, that's how many Republicans get into office.
I mean how are we still "debating" over equal rights for gays and lesbians? That shit is guaranteed in the constitution. Equal protection under the law has been confirmed with the civil rights movements of women and race groups. How are we still talking about such a goddamn stupid topic? And how come the democrats havent pushed this?
Not all Democrats are for Homosexual rights. Many of them, or the vast majority of them are still highly religious (no matter what the Republicans tend to say).
Personally, like I said earlier, I think the system needs destroying.
I would rather have it broken than destroyed. Destroyed probably means that the states control themselves 100%, and then the conservative states will become highly conservative. The liberal states will become more liberal. The in-between states will most likely be broken up between those two factions, which will cause yet another war.
We need multiple parties that share power, not a winner takes all scenario.
Don't see it happening. We're too diverse of a nation.
The court system needs to be abolished as well...
More of that anarchy.
I have an opinion on that but its a whole 'nother thread.
So create one. Do it at ATT. We could use the conversation.
