As a matter of fact, the election system is pretty much different in France.
If I'm saying that, it's because the american/australian way of electing a president seems not being really influenced by people's votes (unless I'm understanding it wrong, it's possible).
In my country, people actually votes directly for the president (i'm wondering if it isn't the way europeen country does, but I really sucks in international politics).
However, were are blocked in a two-party situation, like yours.
Desolo was talking about a deep "refining" of the political organization.
Well, I may be pretty pessimistic, but I think that a political refining will, one day or the other, lead us back again to the old fashioned democratic government we already leavin' in. Actually, that's what lead us to that point, so ... (okay, maybe my french point of vue here is still affected by our last "big refining" of the political system, wich led us to Napoléon. You see my point here, I guess.)
Personnally, I will no extend my belief, because they are not really relevant (or too crazy, don't know. For the reccord, I'm wath american can call an left-extremist damn communist (wich in France is just the left part of politics), with all the social care stuff, homo-homies marriage and adoption, abortion, stem cell research, huge robot everywhere and shit (told you it was a non-sense), and an economy mostly based of let's steal -insert people community/country here- ), especially in this context (financial crisis and stuff), but I was wondering why, according to KMD, the hispanic immigration is a plague for the United States ?
I mean ... they brought you tacos, right ? You should thanks them for eternity after that ! ;D

Hey man, What you choose to fight for/die for/believe in is a personal choice.... and the ability to CHOOSE is divine.
But we can, and will still disagree :) no offense to you, or anyone else here.... But, Fuck communism, Id rather die free to choose what I want to do then be told what I can and cannot do or believe in. And thats my choice.

And, as I said, no offense... my views are likely just as extreme to many as yours are to mine.  :laugh: I actually had a friend of mine say I was an anarchist the other day after trying to properly explain my views, and a while before that another couldnt understand why I was sich an "idealist"

As for the whole immigration thing being a "plague" it is because they are putting an ENORMOUS drain on "entitlements" (Food stamps, various medical programs) that they pay little or no taxes to support. and while most taxes are bullshit, in this case its adding even more strain on our already shitty system.

That said many or the illegal immigrants ive met are very nice people, and id like to see them stay..... in a legal and FAIR capacity, no free passes, but not slamming the door to the world either.

Sorry for the ramble folks  :laugh:

I think you're refering to the communist model, and not the communist party, witch doesn't look (even a bit) like it.
At least in France, witch is more a commun left oriented party, with social concerns mostly.
And I must admit, I just put the "communist" word because I know it's a tricky one. ;D

I'm pretty sure I don't care for communism in any form (but the definition does remain elusive).

But I am socialist leaning, particularly in terms of health care and taxation but believe strongly in individual rights and privacy.

And, of course, the Green Blanket covers all of that.

Whether all those ideologies can live under one roof remains to be seen.

But that's what I like.

(Funnily, french communist party is more close of the socialist idea, and the socialist party is more close to the "middle" oriented party. Our "right" is almost the same as liberals (the economical branch of it) with some touchs of conservatism (like gays can't have the same rights as straights, breaking some of the work/social rights, etc ...)
I agree with the part countaining the individuals right and privacy. Almost every (except the extrems ones (far right and far left, communism isn't actually recognized as a far-left party (or just at the edge)) party are based on those rights.
Right is caressing the idea of supressing our actual health care.
One day they will.
And I have no ideas what Green Blanket cover can refer to. Assurance model about health care ?)

And to be honnest, I'm not very interested in politics, mostly because politics implies (sometimes) human.
And I'm not very good with humans.
If politics was about sandwiches, I'll damn good at it.
Or dinosaures in burning planes ...
Fuck yeaaaaaaaaah ....

'Green' in the US almost always implies 'pro environment'.

And I'm pretty much lunatic fringe pro-environment.

Any experienced economist would understand that Communism and Capitalism, in their purest forms, are dysfunctional.  Communism falls apart because there’s no incentive, and capitalism fails because theres no egalitarianism.  As for illegal immigrants, sure they don’t pay taxes, but they also work a fair amount of minimum wage (or below) jobs that Americans relies on.
