On the Democratic Process [Mar. 1st, 2016|11:44 pm]
So I caucused tonight. It was fine, but I didn't feel particularly enfranchised or participatorily democratic as a result. I'm happy to have made by contribution, but mostly, the process struck me as an unnecessarily noisy and time-consuming way of conducting a poll.

On the other hand, at least the current system uses proportional representation. Our precinct was split about 60-40, which resulted in 2 delegates for each candidate, and it would have taken more than a couple of people changing their minds to shift things one way or another. So at least it's fair.

Don't even get me started on how terrible our system of voting in actual elections is.
