Therefore I can't simply vote my conscience (I would rather vote for Jill Stein and possibly some other minor-party candidates) because in such a close state a vote for a non-Dem is effectively a vote for a Republican.

    My county in particular is so Republican that several races were decided in the primary.

    Deregulation is about the same as letting your dog out of their crate after you have been gone a few hours. They run all over the place like mad fools until they get tired out and settle down. Sometimes they get overexcited and smack into walls or furniture when they do it. Despite the potential for damage, I don't think anyone is arguing that it is better for the dog to live in there.

    Same thing goes for an industry that was smacking up against regulations for 50 years. They've gotten so good at smacking up against the rules which artificially held them back that as soon as they are freed from it, they go ape shit.

    There are two reasons deregulation has become a problem:

    1) One side thinks that rapid, unplanned deregulation is the solution to all possible problems, when in fact, it is quite likely to cause short term disaster before things get better. And the faster the deregulation, the worse the disaster.

    2) Our reaction to problems caused by deregulation is to reward them by bailing them out, and then return them to the cage. This will fail because eventually the regulations will be relaxed again and no one will have learned their lesson. In the meantime, efficiency suffers under the regulatory scheme.

    Now, there needs to be some regulation to prevent fraud and predatory practices. However, there are entire divisions of people who are devoted to complying with regulations and interacting with an overgrown, self-perpetuating bureaucracy. That same bureaucracy has become large enough, and powerful enough on it's own that it is virtually the fourth branch of government, completely unelected and impossible to move even with concerted effort.

    No it is like deciding whether your dog should live in a cage, your house, your property, or the neighborhood.. Sure a cage is bad. However few would argue that letting your dog crap in your neighbor's lawn is good for the community. Thus regulation is a matter of degree. You chose an analogy that highlights over regulation. My 'crapping on the neighbor' analogy highlights the danger of under regulation. Don't let tailored analogies restrict your thinking on the utility and limits of regulation.

    Well, I was more expressing my opinion via an analogy than letting it form my thinking. I was more illustrating another situation where sudden bad behavior after deregulation does not imply constant misbehavior forever more.

    Now, of course, you have a point about regulation and over-regulation, and the gradient of the change is probably more telling. If you go from a lot of regulation to a lot less, then you will have bigger outbursts. That doesn't mean that you can't find a way to live with the new situation, and you certainly have a happier dog.

    Any regulation will have a confining effect, and if you have a growing dog, just like we want to have a growing economy, a nice fenced in yard that worked for your puppy isn't going to work for your dog. However, you do probably want your dog to eventually grow up, just like you want a growing economy.

    Advantages: The two main parties have to cater to the center mass of people rather than subscribe to fringe viewpoints as if they go too far, the otherside will always win. There is less factionalism, or at least less factions to deal with. Theoretically, the winner does so with a majority and therefore some sort of mandate which gains acceptance and provides for a more stable government.

    What you call an advantage is what I'd call the system's biggest disadvantage. The whole political spectrum is compressed down to a one-dimensional line and the only voters they fight for are the narrow section in the center, most "mainstream" democrats and republicans aren't relevant because they'll never switch sides and voting for anyone else or not voting only weakens "their" side. They can grumble and moan but you know in the end they'll tow the party line because it's better than the other guy winning. And there's no cooperation between the sides unless they're both looking to screw you.

    In our system there's currently seven parties in parliament, two left, three center (left/right-leaning perhaps) and two right and for the most part they do find a majority after the election, like currently both left parties and one center party is in a coalition, it's not really more fancy than each senator wanting their pork. And it obviously matters if the voting distribution is 5% vs 30 % or 15% vs 20%, so each vote matters as you shift from "light red" to "dark red" even though it'll probably still be a red government and the same for blue. That means you have to work for all your voters, because otherwise they're fleeing in all directions.

    The other big point is cooperation, with smaller parties you don't need to have the leftmost liberal Democrat working with the rightmost tea party Republican. Very often you can find a majority center-left, center-right or moderate left-moderate right, the US system is extremely adversarial. Anything one side comes up with, the other side must absolutely hate and totally try to sabotage in every way possible, even by cheap techniques like filibustering. And why not? They don't ever need to cooperate neither now nor later, no reason not to burn bridges. And if you ever get control over both the House and Senate, ram 'em good.

Conservatives don't want less rules in general, they just want to change where the rules are made and enforced. You don't call the FBI when a neighbors dog is in your yard, you call the neighbor, if it continues you call the local dog catcher, then maybe the local sheriff. If my neighbors dog is just "visiting" my dog I may not care, but if there is a federal law against dogs leaving their own yard, a passerby could call the law and royally piss of both of us.

    And you're basing your reasons on absolutely no scientific data, with the assumption that the downsides of deregulation are somehow only "temporary," with no explanation as to how it would only be temporary. And if that's the case, why has Monsanto gotten away with terrorizing smaller farmers for decades? Why do oil companies continue to cause natural disasters like the Gulf and Alaska spills (and those are just in the US) or Shell's constant leaks on the west coast of Africa?

      And what makes you think efficiency "suffers" because of regulation? Regulation is one of the things that keeps monopolies from forming, and last I checked, monopolies aren't good in terms of efficiency. Regulation is also the reason banks can't charge you astronomically high interest rates on simple loans, and can instead only charge you outrageously high interest rates, which is also an improvement in terms of efficiency. Regulation also INDIRECTLY helps with efficiency by, say, not letting companies dump chemical byproducts close to water supplies and poisoning every other company's employees.

    Yeah, he supports a number of things that old-world conservatives don't support (ie gay marriage), but if you're still floating around this planet in this day and age and you are genuinely against gay marriage, you might as well give up.. you've lost this battle.

    It's pretty clear to me that Romney doesn't stand a chance in hell at winning this. Johnson has so much greater appeal to more people (once they actually hear his platform), it seems to me the Republicans are intentionally throwing this election.

    The only people I know personally who have mentioned their support of Romney are doing so simply because it is an anti-Obama vote. Not one of them can speak about the man and his graceful oration abilities, or his distinct knack for tact. I'm not hearing anyone say "I am voting for Romney because he's going to make my life better", all I hear is "Obama has put this country on the road to bankruptcy, we need to get rid of him".

    D and R are so incredibly polarized these days that it makes it nigh impossible to have a civil discussion about politics. This is exactly how each party likes it. They love this polarization, because it help keep either of the two in power. So long as half of us can hate the other half in unison, we will continue to support the group who is "Anti-Those-Guys".

    The biggest problem is not the deregulated banks, but the bailouts that kept bad banks in business. There were plenty of banks that didn't need a bailout. Instead of thinning the herd, and allowing the bad banks to fail and declare bankruptcy, we bailed them out with taxpayer dollars, and set them up to fail again, because no one learned their damn lesson. We had a great opportunity to get rid of all the bad banks, and instead we saved them, so they can tank the economy in the future.

    It's attitudes like that which keep the completely fubar'd two-party system in place.

    The only way to truly waste a vote is to vote for a candidate you don't really believe in. While I agree that they don't "speak to ones individuality" since by their nature votes aren't public knowledge (however if you shout from the hills who you voted for... then it speaks to your individuality, but the action of voting itself does not), I disagree that it's not "[making] a statement". If a third party gets a significant amount of the popular vote it does make a statement. What happens afterwards is another question. In 1992 Independent Candidate Ross Perot was included in the Presidential Debates and ended up taking 18.9% of the popular vote Nationwide (though still failing to win any actual electoral votes). The result of this was a rule change by the Commission on Presidential Debates to effectively exclude 3rd Party Candidates from all future debates (remember the Commission isa non-profit run by the DNC and the RNC and is not actually a Government run organization). Sounds more like the Major Parties were running scared; if Perot could win nearly 19% of the popular vote then a Third Party or Independent could potentially start winning electoral votes or maybe even an election after a few election cycles, so they had to fix things in their favor before it all got out of hand.

As a Democrat that doesn't bother me too much, but as an American, I don't like the idea of one party having unfettered control over the system.

    And yes, I do (for the most part) believe in Barack Obama as a candidate. I'm not just voting for the lesser of two evils; I honestly believe that he has made significant strides in making the country a better place. I honestly believe that he could have done even better--and thus we could all be even better off--had Republicans worked with him instead of stating from day one that their top political objective is to get him out of office. Still, given what he had to work with, I think he had made some amazing accomplishments and that history will judge him as one of our best presidents.

    If you mean that finantial industry that only exists because it is protected by the government, yes, that's part of what I'm talking about.

    There was no deregulation. Deregulation would open the door for concurrent entities to assume that same function, and would srink your banks into a sane size. What happened is that the regulation changed, in a way that increased the relevance of the government sponsoring.

What this country needs is a good five dollar plasma weapon.
