Some Stupid Idea That's Better Than Anything Else I've Heard
Because, I swear, I got nothing better to do (and yes, I am aware of the breach in grammar...), I offer this potential solution to the idiotic problem of Unity.
Frankly, I think the entire thing is a gigantic pile of dog shit. But because I had an idea, I feel like publishing it. And since everyone and their stupid stooge nephew has an opinion, I figure this pathetic article won't hurt anything, and what the hell maybe I'll pick up a subscription or two.
And so my (latest idiotic) solution to the "Unity Problem" is called:
CROSS COUNTRY UNITY
Stupid name. I know. But because this is such a useless waste of your time and mine, I am quite frankly abandoning that urge to put any extra time into any aspect of writing this trash. So we're stuck with that as the name. CROSS COUNTRY UNITY.
Why did I pick that name?
Because my new system is based on the way Cross Country meets are scored.
In a Cross Country meet, the top 5 finishers from each team contribute their "place" to their team's score. So if I finish 1st, I contribute 1 point to my team's score. If my team's 5th runner finishes 10th, he contributes 10 points to my team's score.
Now in a real cross country meet, the top 7 from each team actually count. So if I can get my #6 runner across before your #5 runner, that ends up costing you another point.
So in a two-way race, here's how it might look:
1 - RED1
2 - RED2
3 - BLUE1
4 - BLUE2
5 - RED3
6 - BLUE3
7 - RED4
8 - RED5
9 - BLUE4
10 - RED6
11 - BLUE5
In this race, the red team accumulates
The blue team accumulates
Red wins with 23 because the lowest score wins.
If we get stuck with another crappy Unity election, and trust me, if The Idiot and his Circus of Dancing Fleas ends up occupying a Top 5 party at CP endorsement time WE WILL HAVE TO HAVE ANOTHER GADDAM UNITY ELECTION, then I propose we move to the CROSS COUNTRY UNITY system to determine who our candidate should be.
Every party gets its own endorsement, and they get weighted based on their membership, so that the Feds would be a 1, AFA would be a 2, USWP would be a 3 and so on down the line.
Hell, I'd even invite the Idiot and his derphole* Circus to participate because they'd get totally blown out of the water in this system anyway.
So what do you think?
*Sorry PQ... fixed that. Thanks for keeping me honest.
