Five for Friday: Let’s Go to the Polls

New, comment

Can we do better than the Iowa Caucus?

NCAA Basketball: Illinois at Iowa Jeffrey Becker-USA TODAY Sports

With all the animosity between groups out there, and no I’m not talking Democrats and Republicans, I wanted to try something out where everyone is always correct.

On Fridays, I will throw out a topic asking for your top five in whatever the conversation is that week. I’ll give my opinion and then read your choices in the comments section. We’ll keep this going as long as there is some participation.

As these are your (or my) opinions, we can’t be wrong so just have fun with the topic.

Five for Friday

As you may have read, the Iowa Caucus efforts were a mess and while we’re not going to rehash that debacle, we can prove that we can have a better voting system by participating in the five questions below.
