    I think it was Louise L Hay who said that she has banished the word 'should' from her vocabulary. 

    Think about your question.  It is asking for people's opinions.  The inference is that things are not right as they are and should be changed.  You are going to get an awful lot of differing opinion here.  Much of it will not jell or agree with your own views.   But maybe that is the whole idea.  You may actually wish to know what other people think and feel.   

    Then again, you might have presented this question to see if a majority agree with YOUR views - whatever they may be - and take some consolation from that.  Many of us tend to do that.   Most people prefer to 'run with the herd.'

    I like the blank screen.   The inference is we can fill it with what we like.     
    You've made it a reddish-pinkish color.   Good.  Bit better than black, I think.  So maybe you'r not too disillusioned with the way things are after all.

      Actually it was supposed to be purple, and that is the mix of blue and red party colors.

    Honestly I think voting party line is mindless and lazy. People who encourage lazy mindlessness are always going to suspect in my book. Political parties, especially as they are now, seem more like appendix-  out-of-date, generally useless and easily ignored, unless actively causing harm.

    If there is a benefit to having political parties, whoever benefits isn't me and probably not most Americans either. Like in so many things, people who create the system create it with their own best interests in mind. In most cases that means built-in benefits to an established elite already steeped in privilege. The challenge with maintaining a healthy status quo is that to remain stable, any system has to change constantly over-time, not just stagnate stuck in the same position forever.

    Diverse, Open-minded, Understanding, Accepting, Rational, Logical.

    I mean, it's the least we can strive for considering we're a nation built on White Supremacy, genocide, and terrible foreign policies.

    Not a poor socialist nation.
    Not a fascistic state.
