    All I said is that the current system isn’t turning out great candidates. Unless you think that Trump or the two geezers left standing for the Dems are great, not sure what there is to dispute about that. As far as more parties go, my point is that’s fine in theory, but they still have to find great candidates. Not sure that’s likely to happen because the current political environment isn’t conducive to positive ideas.

    No, that's not all you said:
    "Given the inability of two parties to ferret out even one decent candidate out of 330 million people, are we sure that more parties will increase the odds?"

    But the thing that disturbs me nearly as much as Trump's ineptitude is that most of his supporters STILL refuse to acknowledge it.

    He's even referred to himself as a "war time president"...and if that's the case he should be prosecuted as a war criminal for murder.

    Ah. That was intended as a throwaway laugh line. I guess it didn’t come through to you that way.

    We live in Oregon. It really makes zero difference who we vote for for president. As long as Multnomah County continues to be solid Blue, this state’s EC votes are always going to the Dem anyway. I’ll probably vote Biden this year just to give Trump the finger, but I might just as well vote Wile E Coyote for all the difference it makes.

    Especially since by the time the votes are tallied (tho mail in ballots make this point kind of moot), the election is already over with.

    The more that the percentage of independents increases hopefully, it waters down/neutralizes the radical extremes, on both sides. Its the very reason Joe is dominating Bernie. It didn't work for the 2016 republican primary? should have, but it did in the general as many dems/independents/mod's voted against Hillary rather than a vote for Trump. And it would happen again with her running. So critical to get the right candidate.

    Trust me, I can multi-task...so juggling your silly posts and tilling a garden is not a challenge at all...especially the former.
