    Nice to make your acquaintance and looking forward to some interesting debates.

    Welcome to CU, Uncommon One.

    A mixture of everything, I see ...

    Should indeed make for some "interesting debates" as you stated!

    Two questions for you:

    Are you going to vote in November ...

    And if so, do you mind telling us for whom you will vote?

    With it's mug on one side and it's wump on the other.

    Not quite sure what to call the poor cow straddling that fence, however!

    They're pushing for more than that. They want to immediately be the boss when they're hired.

    I make it a point to vote in elections, but like many, I find myself increasingly unrepresented in Presidential elections. I think Bernie and Paul were more honest and principled then most of the other candidates, though I disagree with both on many issues for varying reasons.

    So while I complain about the lack of good choices I also advocate for specific changes in Gerrymandering laws as well as a different type of election system.

    I hope the Gerrymandering thing is obvious. As far as voting, we need to have a system called "instant run-off" or "Single Transferable Vote". This system allows you to create a list of candidates you prefer starting with the one you want and ending with a candidate you take if you had to. I other words, we generally don't vote for the person we want, we vote against the person we don't. STV solves that problem.

    I'm sure you noticed I sidestepped your question for the landmine that it is. I choose not to step on it. If you wish to ask me further about policy I support, please....But I don't want to be pigeon holed between the two terrible candidates we are left to suffer with.

    Do you think increasing the wage to $15 an hour is bad?
