@jaame: And thats the vial diatribe that they wouldn't have the fortitude to say in a face to face contact unless they are walking around in large gangs "protesting". Unfortunately the only bipartisan issue is that the time for reasonable dialogue and rational negotiation is coming to an end.

@jaame: That and those who make such statements are not allies of the poor and in-fact it, they have disdain for poor people. Rather they just hate the rich. This is true of the bolsheviks from the Russian revolution and its true of modern progressives.

@Matt115lamb: People have had 'a' say. A statistically significant number of those people have simply muddied the water.

@jaame: I see merit to both sides of the supermajority picture. my concern with the supermajority is it leaves very little room for anything to ever really change. And ad what point is a supermajority no longer a majority? While certainly making a choice based on a 50.01% isn't a perfect idea, ignoring that 50.01% isn't a responsible choice either. As far as 50:50 splits being a disaster. I think that is not the fault of the election outcomes but a wider social issue. The rise of social media has created echo chambers. People surround themselves with like minded people and the anonymity afforded to them by the internet mean people are saying absolutely horrible thing about there political opponents that they would not say to their faces. People don't like or can't handle being opposed anymore. Not agreeing on issues is no longer acceptable especially if you are to be friends.

@Matt115lamb: Compulsory voting isn't better. many people are un interested or too absorbed in something else (ei busy with what ever their life's bucket full of shit has for them) to make an informed decision. Australia has compulsory voting. I giggled as I watched an immunologist choose her voting preferences for federal election based on a candidate having the same hair colour. I believe you will have even less of an idea of what the populace wants when you force them to decide. Some will make just toss a coin, some will use some arbitrary and unrelated decision method (hair colour) some will just do what ever their mum, best friend or neighbours uncles fiancé's father's lawyer said to do. The people not voting fall into two major categories - 1. Have decided that both sides are dumpster fires and would rather not participate. 2 don't even care enough to read anything that would inform them one way or another. People who volunteer their vote have at least establish an narrative within themselves that they feel is important enough to make their way to a polling booth. And don't think that forcing them with the long dick of the law will make them decide to be more informed. Most Australians are politically apathetic.
