Gist: Our winner-take-all electoral system keeps us trapped in the GOP-DP trap of fake-choice between establishment candidates of blue or red sheep’s clothing. Spreading the idea whose time has come and which the state of Maine and various cities have already implemented – ranked choice voting – will give us the freedom to vote for those candidates we truly want without fear of “wasting” our vote. A win-win for everybody except the corrupt establishment politicians. And I, for one, don’t want them to win anymore. How about you?
We can fight the crooks without this (for example by flooding the major parties or by creating a strong new party), but with ranked choice voting we’d remove a major obstacle that intimidates so many voters against voting their conscience. So, let’s DEMAND RANKED CHOICE VOTING.
