There are a lot of things damaging our culture, one of the most prominent being we have no culture. US culture is pop culture, thus pop culture has too much influence over people's behavior.

I'm not sure teen pregnancy is being 'glorified' (I don't watch the show in question) but I'm comfortable with the fact that teen pregnancy is declining. That's great. I don't much care about bad language personally, but I know some do and that's fine. I don't think saying 'damn' 'hell' and 'ass' on TV is causing any harm to society, but that's just my opinion.

One either supports reform that involves everyone in the process, or they favor the current 'closed' system that allows 91% to be ignored. I'm firmly on the side that gives me a voice I don't currently have.
I'm not in favor of parties. Getting rid of the parties would be fine with me. I'm not sure how you outlaw them though, and since they do exist, it seems like they are entitled to set up their own rules on how they operate internally.

Okay Donnie, you're out of your element.

Watch the video so you understand the topic. It's clear you're making assumptions based only on the title.

Parties are fine. That's not what is being discussed. There will always be groups with different views. Restricting it to TWO PARTIES while allowing those two parties to unilaterally elect candidates closes the system to the majority. It's a broken system. It's not about 'we need no parties' we need MORE parties.

Ideally, there would be no parties, but I'm fine with more parties. But there are lots of parties. It's just that no one supports them.

If everyone who said they wanted a new party actually got up and did something about it, there would be a viable 3rd party. Ross Perot was a bit of a kook and he made a reasonable run as a 3rd-party candidate. And that was pre-internet.
