    I think we need at least 1, maybe 2 more parties. I agree, having only two ways of doing things just doesn’t make sense for a diverse nation. 

    I think we should get rid of the electoral college. I can see why it could be good for some things (protecting the rural vote?), but it still doesn’t really do those things imo, and just means that some votes count more or less than others.
