Little Hawk:

Sorry, I was aiming that at weelittledrummer and especially pdq & his anti-Democrat story. I suppose I could have countered by telling how all the all the obscene sign defacing and vandalism that I've heard about here in Kootenai county has been done to Democrats, but that would make it maybe bipartisan instead of nonpartisan and I'd rather not pursue it; there's no profit in that kind of discussion. ("Oh yeah? How about what your guys did?" Repeat ad lib, ad infinitum.)

But an overly-ambitious independent would be likely to have a group of henchmen who would behave unsportingly. It's hard to avoid "parties" of some kind. Although I'm for it.

I don't know how many people outside the UK know who Robin Cook MP is, but he was a member of this government before resigning over Iraq and is now just an ordinary MP.

I heard a lecture from him in about 1996 on political structures and he was complaining about the UK system in which whoever wins Parliament has in effect absolute control (at least if the margin is significant). His basic point was that we think of strong government as one that can force through decisions simply because of the majority, even though come the next election if the other side wins they can force through completely opposing decisions. The result is that, taking a view over several changes of leadership there has been substantial occillation and very little of anything that you could call settled progress. "And I am sick of that kind of strong government" was one of the lines that stuck in my memory. Real strong government comes when, for whatever reason, all sides sign up, in the main, to a point of view; rather like LH's suggested 2/3 majority. Yes, it would be much more difficult to get anything done, but whatever was done would have a much better chance of surviving long term.

I don't know why you folks (some of you) seem to think it is accurate appropriate or acceptable to sling these damn labels around and pass judgments on huge lots of people in one swoop by classifying them as ....

It is not only bad thinking, it is also unjust to members of the set, and it is also -- because it distorts truth and promotes falsehood -- unethical.

David Brooks, columnist for the "New York Times" wrote a column about Kerry and Bush that appeared in our newspaper today that is, in my opinion, totally nonpartisan. He extrapolates to the readers his view of the kind of world Kerry envisions and the role the U. S. should play, and the kind of world Bush wants and how the U. S. should help achieve it. He does not urge support for either candidate.

This article describes the philosophies of both candidates better than anything I have read.

I favor the type world Bush wants.

I think I know the article referred to, this one I think there is an important distinction to be made in his attributions of "vision". I do not for a moment believe that Kerry's vision -- on eof taking our neighbor relations seriously -- is one of preventing the sovereignty of any nation. How could it be? But consulting with the other people in the small crowded room called Earth is only basic decency, something much neglected of late in the halls of power.

Someone asked me who I thought had the better character, Bush or Kerry. I replied that I thought that the character of the individual running for president is, or at least ought to be, irrelevent - when this nation was formed, a lot of safeguards were put into place to ensure that the president could not become like a king, dictator, emperor, or other single leader; therefore, the point is not who is the mouthpiece for the administration, the point is the administration that has the temporary upper hand.

I also agree that being doomed to failure is no excuse for not trying. Hey, I live in Virginia!

Touble is, politicians think the economy is their responsibility when, in fact, they should be concerned, foremost,with the education, health and welfare of the citizenry.

Just read a market analysis that says, regardless of who is the next president, we are headed for an economic downslide that make the depression of the 30's look like a hiccup.

I know everybody here thinks I am a rabid right winger.

The fact is I am not a republican or a democrat. I am a conservative.

I think the two party system we have is reaching a critical mass.

It needs to be done away with. Political advertising should be done for free by the press, radio and TV networks as a required public service. Equal but limited time must be given to all candidates, even the weasels who have no chance of winning a position as a dog catcher.

All of these media are looking for something to present to the American public so let them present the candidate at their expense. Do not support it with public money because you will have endless Sharptons running.

There are probably flaws in this plan but they could be worked out.

Now how in holy hell is this going to come about when we have lawyers and politicians making the laws?

If it is not done we will have anarchy, riots, revolutions or coups like we see in 3rd world countrys.

Should we just turn it over to the UN? The UN is corrupt.

Something must be done. Possibly McCain and Lieberman in 08 could start us in the right direction. They are highly regarded by both parties (Rival Gangs).

Old Guy, for once I am able in part to agree with you! You're right, the political class worldwide is out of touch with the people it purports to represent and tends to represent itself and its own interests - however, this is unfortunately the nature of the political beast. I don't really know enough about the mechanics of the political process in your country to suggest how this could be changed, but something does need to be done.

You're right as well that probably are some bugs that need ironing out in the system that you've proposed, but it's nice to see that we do have some common ground after all!

I've been moaning about the iniquitous state of government (UK) for many years, and as far as I can see the one thing that never happens is a governmaent that reflects the will of the nation (any nation).

Some thoughts on a possible solution:-

1. Proportional representation, based on total number of votes gained, would go some way toward achieving the democracy we all talk about, but don't have.

2. Also, I feel that all candidates should renounce any, and all, political affiliations, except to their constituents, as a pre-condition to being selected.

3. It should be possible for a constituency to call their representative to account for actions taken in their name, and remove/replace him if the answers are not satisfactory.

I suggest the above as a general cocept which would, if properly controlled, answer the concerns of most of us. I freely admit I don't have a clue as to how it could be practically achieved, but then Verner von Brauntook a long time to move from the concept of rocketry, to a practical ICBM. But he got there!

Ahhh. one of the old problems....

If you have PR, then the constituency doesn't always get the person, or even the party they mainly voted for.

If you don't have PR, the the goverment doesn't reflect the way the country votes well

And hybred systems, like the one the Scottish Parliment are not much better. The constituancies the MSPs share are so large so as to be useless.

Removing someone if you don't like how they represented you in Parliment is called the next election. Much else is a bit fussy on a local scale.

2. Also, I feel that all candidates should renounce any, and all, political affiliations, except to their constituents, as a pre-condition to being selected.

Well, we did have a large number of legislators independent of the party system. The cross-benchers in the House of Lords, and the civil service.
So The goverment abolishes half the first, and does its best to corrupt the other

Sorry about the thread drift.

It may be worth repeating the old one though.

"Anybody who seeks a position of power should not be considered for it."

Or something like that. I never remember quotes right.

The point of my idea my idea is that the constituency would not be voting for the party, because parties would be precluded by 2.

The parliament would consist of one individual MP for each constituency, each of whom would be required to reflect the views of that constituency, and no other.

I suddenly realised that, in such a system, proportional representation would be impossible, as it is a party concept, meaningless without parties.

I can see that the choice of a cabinet, and prime minister would be difficult, and time consuming, but surely the "Sir Humphreys" could maintain status quo for a week or two.

In this situation, a vote of no confidence in an under-performing MP would make it possible to enforce adherence to the "constituency loyalty" principle.

Non partisan, apolitical, government! The way forward?
