We’ve discussed (at length, in multiple places) how the current US election system has its flaws. Looks like we aren’t the only ones who think so. This Freakonomics post led me to:
Tired of only voting for a party duopoly? Join the Startup Party USA to change our elections away from duopolist rule. Startups aren’t just for monetary profit. The Startup Party USA intends to be the first 3+ political party in the United States. A 3+ political party is one with the primary mission of reforming voting rules so that even more parties have an equal and fair chance at winning elections. To accomplish this, we must first eliminate winner-take-all or “first past the post” voting everywhere in the USA.
I like the idea. They don’t have a snowball’s chance in hell as things stand, of course, but you have to start somewhere.
