Then Symmetrical ICT would be better than unimproved Condorcet methods
such as Beatpath, etc., because SITC doesn't have the chicken dilemma.

Nonpartisan elections wouldn't have any effect on the things that you
describe in that paragraph. Party affiliation and endorsement tells
people something about what policy platform a candidate espouses,
recommends, proposes, offers or advocates. That's the most relevant
thing about a candidate.

When you speak of getting more corrupt, you're referring to Democrat
and Republican candidates.

Let's be clear about who's well-known to be corrupt: Democrat and
Republican politicians..

 Though they've been corrupt for a long time, I agree that they may
well be getting more corrupt, as each successive presidential
administration builds on the corruption-enhancing work of the previous

Well, why shouldn't they be felons? They nearly always get away with
it. Here's a new idea: Make elected officials subject to the law.
Routinely put them in a penitentiary (an ordinary one, not a
country-club) when they accept bribes, commit criminal fraud by
violating, for money, the promises for which they were elected, or
commit other crimes. The number of years of their sentences shouldn't
be any less because they're officeholders.
