People like our party system just because "that's how it's been, and it works, right?" And I hear this constantly when I try to urge others into thinking of the system differently.
Coming from a country which has PR for almost 40 years (would be 100 if dictatorship didn't happen inbetween), I find it appalling people not wanting that system, specially considering how many people complain about the two parties not catering to their ideologies.

And, honestly, Republican moderates should be begging for PR, considering it would give the chance to restructure the party by making the extremists wanting other parties that better cater their ideologies and would get a shot at representation, thus the Republican party having the chance of being a serious and respected party instead of the punchline of every joke. (Needless to say, Democrats could also use the same renewal.)
