Our voting system is inheriently broken
I'd suggest looking into the A/V Instant Runoff system.

Preferential voting is a start - but you also need multi-member electorates. Otherwise you end up with huge numbers of people being completely unrepresented in congress/parliament.

I think we should just throw the electorate vote out and replace it with popular.

I would say Scotland has the best system with proportional representation, every vote counts! Although I like the Democrats, The U.S.A needs more than 2 major parties it's tearing the country in 2! In Britain, although politics is largely dominated by Labour and Conservatives, Having the Liberal Democrats as the Third Major party really diversifies the landscape. Admittadly some reforms need to be made to make it easier for small parties to make a presences (AV referendum!).

I'm not sure what you been but I think it's great having three good (socialist) parties dominating scottish politics; Labour, Lib Dem and SNP, although I think Alex Salmond may be a little nuts.

The green party hasn't done anything wrong (yet) so I'm going to stick by them.

Alex Salmond won't let Scotland forget it until they vote yes for independance. And Hey! We have our own Parliament and nearly everyone (educated) in the world know's about us and our tartans and whisky, especiallly America and Canada. The same cannot be said for places like the basque country, not everbody knows them.
