:roll: Even if we abolished the EC, and established proportional voting at the national level, State elections are governed by the state. The Republican government there won’t give their opposition an ounce of power, they’ll never approve it. Brand a huge party shift, proportional voting won’t happ...

Proportional voting isn’t going to happen. So your options are, as Farn said, join the Republican Party, or move to a swing state. Life sucks get a helmet

"move away if you wanna have a say" is dumb. I agree. Register Republican and work from within. It ain't gonna be easy, but what is? I do that, actually. I volunteered for the guy I wanted. I lost, but at least I had to say. It just sucks that I have to do that to even have a say under th...

No, I'm not. In Tennessee, democrats have no chance. instead, they get nothing but hard right leaning governors and senators. Yes, they have their state reps and senators, but in state wide elections, they do not have a chance. The only way they can have a say in what way the state goes is by helpi...

I do. The purpose is to elect a representative of that party to try and win a seat. However, given that states like TN exist where the primary is essentially the election since there is no democratic chance, it gives the entire state a say. If we had more than just two viable parties, I would say t...

Okay, he's seeking an "insurgency" which is to say, a substantial enough group to make a complete shift in the current direction of the GOP (which is something Trump himself did just a few years ago) which is to say, in other words, a working majority. From your tone, I'm fairly certain I...

Is anyone to the left of Trump a Democrat now? I thought you'd be above that kind of thinking, but I assure you Weld has no home in the Democratic Party. No it’s not that. It’s that’s he openly admitted he’s trying to get democrats to vote for him in the republican primary to unseat the current inc...

And such solipsism is frankly dangerous in the White House. He'll impulsively make a decision and completely believe he'...

Yes! Volunteers are always welcome. Yeah, I'll add some airborne guys to my factbooks and make sure to note some army and airborne deployment to Chuli. Would it work if perhaps an airborne brigade was sent as a training/advisory force sometime in the late 1980s, but then as the war flares up in '91...

Their dismal understanding of the economy and their current shift to the far left . This one really can't be understated imo.

Dude, I disagreed with Dubya in my time yet did not think him the devil for it. Same with Reagan. Chavez called Dubya the Devil. That being said, I think a lot of people disliked perhaps the big shift that happened during Obamas presidency. America turning from a conservative into a increasingly li...

Since Brulafi is close to AM, maybe it could be the basing ground for UCCR operations? It'd be like Thailand if we want to go with the Vietnam analogy.

Absolutely. At least for air bases.

AM, I wanna add this to UCCR history and my cannon, but I don't think its developed enough between us. While we "supported them" and we fought and all, I think we need to work out some details. We have how i and the UCCR were involved, but not so much how the war went and how Thuzbek Mari...

The UCCR could support the PRoC throughout the 70s and have put tons of propaganda and economic aid into the PRoC throughout the 60s as well. I'm not sure there is a dominant ideology. It's a very diverse group. But in the 70s, we could start building bases and deploying troops there. Thuzbek Marin...
