German Pirate Party Enters 2nd State Parliament 188

An anonymous reader writes "After its recent success in the Berlin elections, the German Pirate Party scores 7.4% of votes for the state parliament of Saarland, earning them 4 seats out of 51. While the campaign didn't center around copyright issues and/or ACTA (the party's stance is well-known), it centered around open government, access to education, and participative governing models, effectively ridding the party of its 'one issue' notion."

    First past the post. "Throwing your vote away". "Letting the worse of two evils win by wasting your vote".

    Ah... I see... "stuck in local optimum" when better optimum points exists.
    Hmmm... I'd recommend a "reheating the system in simulated annealing", but I feel that the things should go much worse for such a thing to happen.
