Looks like there is a movement to unite the independent left under one party or at least one leadership. Howie Howard is all but guaranteed to win the ticket for the Green Party, and got also selected the Socialist Party USA as their nominee.

And if I would be american and live in a state where I could vote for him, I would do so.

I think they should implement ranked choice voting.  Doing so would would allow you to vote without throwing away your vote.  And, I'm fairly certain that an individual state could elect to do that on their own without the feds input.

Anything other than winner takes all would be an improvement for sure. Even just small baby steps like splitting up a state in several congressional districts would be very appreciated and more representative of the population ant their voting as a whole.

Well, either Trump wins or America becomes a commie shithole in about ten years.

Hell even if Trump wins the US becoming a communist hellhole it's only delayed, we would need to figure how kill the commie cancer that has infiltrated every fucking institution in the country and the world for that matter.

If that's the alternative to a dictatorship, then I'd gladly take the "communist shithole"

Seriously, the democrats would be considered center-right in Europe, with some of them even outright right-wingers. Even Bernie Sanders is just a social democrat at best.

Finally, many, many Americans tend to confuse the left-right axis with the libertarian-authoritarian axis. But I think this video would be better at explaining what I mean there:

Long story short: The US are lightyears away from communism, or even just some light social democracy for that matter.
