You think the Dems will split? AOC and the Progressives start their own party? SPLITTER!

I think it's possible, the Old Guard isn't taking kindly to all the kerfuffle and tweeter shite.
Yeah well that's just, like, your opinion, man.

A third party would be an interesting development. We have three in Canada, draw your own conclusions.

well, any country that could elect the second generation of the trudeaus to office is rather obviously at least as frelled up as the US...

I've often thought the GOP might split, the evangelicals and their fellow travelers forming their own little nest of stupid. People say the U.S. system isn't suited to multiple parties, why not? I see no reason it can't accommodate multiple parties.

well, the US are so used to the two party system I just doubt any new players might succeed, plus, those two have a solid power base and just might play together to eliminate minot players.

No structural reason, in any case. They'd just have to form coalitions in Congress.

yeah rite... problem is that Merka's culture is confrontational, not collaborative... you just don"t have the mindset to make coalitions work

That's why it would be so much fun. We should allow a vote of no-confidence, we'd have more governments than Italy. Better still, just say Fuck It to Congress and just go with government by Twitter. We're close already.

I want to hate him as much as ever, but he DID manage to get weed legal. I think it's more significant than people are giving him credit for.

Nearly immediately after, the US was forced to legalize hemp, or risk a bigger country getting the jump on them in industrial production. I still don't know where that is going to go, but I've scanned a few videos about processing them into rope.

I think having the ability to use the fibre will be big. There is a pipeline of materials ready to go, and up to now it has been waste.

hemp is good for a lot of things... rope is only the tip of the iceberg... it can be made into cloth, paper, fibreboard; even construction materials... I used to hang out with a bunch of hippies who were desperately trying to get weed legal, one of their stalking horses was all the things you could do with the rest of the hemp plant, and how legalizing it would benefit the economy.

It looks good, but it will come down to labour. I'm hoping to learn to make use of what I produce, so cotton-like yarn made into a hat or codpiece would be very happy.

hemp is a lot coarser the cotton, it was used to make sailcloth and monastic habits, not refined clothing, I doubt your cod would like the piece very much, too rough.

You need to have run-offs or compulsory preferencing.

The U.S. system is not suitable for democracy never mind anything else.
