Thoughts on Justin Amash? Not as a presidential candidate, but as a person and a Congressman.

A little off topic, but I think a good way to try and stop human trafficking would be to go at it from the demand side. Legalizing prostitution provides a safer, legal alternative and get rid of the need to go through an illegal and potentially coersive process. Thoughts?

The problem, in my view, is that unions are forced to represent people who don't pay dues. That puts us in a weird situation where, either we force people to pay dues even if the don't want to be represented, or the unions are representing people for free, which isn't fair for them.

would you support legislation aimed at ending the two party system. Specifically, would you support a ranked voting system, where voters are allowed to indicate 1st, 2nd, 3rd choices, etc., (and those candidates who receive the lowest percentage of the vote (1st choices) are eliminated and their votes are distributed to the voters' second choices until reaches 50%)? It's not likely to happen, because it'd require a constitutional amendment. But it'd be nice to get more people talking about it.
