An End to the Electoral College?

Sadly, voting system reform is in its early childhood. It won't unseat Bush, although Soros and a restless electorate just might.

Though Bush may pull another fast one on America, don't just sit idly by and worry that plutocracy will reign forever. Throw your money and support behind the Center for Voting and Democracy, especially their Instant Runoff Voting (IRV) initiatives.

IRV (and other voting systems, like Full Representation) enhance our voting system by guaranteeing that pluralocrats like Bush never again hold the chains of power with so little popular backing.

Once IRV (or its ilk) is in place nationally, you'll be able to vote Green without appearing mathematically challenged. You'll be able to show your libertarian stripes without unintentionally helping elect a candidate adored by a political minority and abhorred by so many.
