I think that the greatest books I've read are Atlast Shrugged as well as A Man in Full by Tom Wolfe. The scope, characterization, and intricate storylines of those two books are absolutely incredible. Additionally, I think that Tom Wolfe is the preeminent living American author. His knack for research coupled with his singular writing style make his works true masterpieces.
I have very little experience in politics or voting but from this limited knowledge I still feel like a majority of the voting territories (precints?) are sufficiently one sided. With that in mind, neither a vote for the majority candidate nor the minority one truly matters. Wouldn't the election be truly more representative of the populace with a popular vote?
