Re: Proportional representation
Proportional representation is to allow fairer representation for voters who may vote for a smaller party, but the US don't do this - it's all or nothing and the result is first past the post. Anyway, most people don't like to change something that's been around for centuries, and it's not in the main party's interests to do so. You'll find that the great major of constituencies are not contested only by the two main parties.
