Finally, you brought my subject up! Thanks. The two-party system sometimes can be a dangerous one-party system for a long time. Suggestion? Have a median multi-party system with thresholds in each state. This all leads to ELECTORAL REFORM. The two words the two parties are afraid of using, since they won't be able to Gerrymander districts or have safe seats. We need for the unrepresented parties to get together and go state by state explaining why we need electoral reform and which possiblility could work the best. I know there's no perfect system but we can't be worse than we are now! I really recommend that we use an American mixed system, 70% elected in mixed MMD/SMD districts using STV/IRV (both part of Choice Voting) and 30% in open state PR lists. Choice voting means that you rank as many candidates as you want and your vote's not wasted until you decide not to rank further candidates. State lists would allow parties reaching the state threshold (the more members, the lower the threshold) but a normal threshold could also be 10% in any state. If we switch to a full PR system, chances are we'll be in a bigger hell! A mixed system would be the only way out. We can still have single party governments and direct constituency links but we need to get rid of Gerrymandering. If anybody agrees with my proposal, say so; if not, I'm able to consider your opinions too.
