RE: Trump 4 Spanking
I like that idea, Michael. It's not the first I've heard of it either. The only thing to add, is we'd have to change others as well. Especially senators. I wouldn't want massive elections across offices. I like the rotation of Senators it gives continuity to a state. Perhaps congess 4 years and senators 8. They all spend too much time getting re-elected.

I'm less favorable on that idea. Mexico had a system like that and the end result was once they got elected they didn't care about their constituents and just tried to enrich themselves -- there was no incentive to perform. Re-election is that incentive.

I think the average president's primary objective from their first day in office is to be reelected. It's shameful that they basically take almost two years off to campaign - and using tax dollars to do so.

In Canada if I recall correctly our election took about 6 weeks.

True, but that is also because of the less crowded primary field, multiparty system. Here in the US the winner take all majority system means that each party must winnow through 2-16 candidates to choose the two worst. That takes a lot of time, including many horrifying intrusions of awful web/image board "culture" and folk music.

What is sad for me is the fact that like most I don't like either one. Trump also seems to be giving Republicans a bad name at times. I have people on both sides of the fence and I just want all the election nonsense to be over.

RE: Trump 4 Spanking
John Boy, I've stopped watching the news (except for my MHz channel) most of it is name calling and accusations by all sides. In seven weeks, I shall decide when I pick up my ballot. I like many, if not most, will have to choose, which I consider the less of two evils.

I fear the election will be very close and the new President will take office with fully half of the country hating his/her guts. There might even be legal challenges, due to the bitter accusations. There is a plethora of terms dominating the airwaves.

Deplorable, corrupt, liars, rigged, traitors, killer, bigot, racists, Nazis, fill in the blank phobes. There will be conspiracy theories about the legitimacy, of whoever wins, that will plague the new administration, imo.

My sister's door has this sign. "If someone is trying to find me, I'll be at the barn, from 1pm until 2017.

RE: Trump 4 Spanking
It is sad that you have to choose between the lesser of two evils. Hopefully you get the one that is less evil because I hate to think what is going to happen over the next four years.
