    All this Third Party stuff ain't goin' 
    nowhere unless we get rid of the winner-
    take-all single member district system 
    and change it to multi-member districts
    and proportional representation.
    Commenting on the American situation,
    Friedrich Engels recognized this in 
    1893, in a letter to a colleague.  Earlier
    I quoted from it on this list.
    Too bad the American left never has 
    caught up with Engels.
    As for me, I ain't shedding any tears
    over the evil of two lessors not getting
    elected, and I think it's really strange
    to see leftists gnashing their teeth over
