CAN A THIRD PARTY SAVE US?
Recently heard the term “National primary” and it tripped a switch in my brain. If they can so easily contemplate a national primary, why not also contemplate a national presidential runoff. We have the Electoral College in place as a safe guard, so why not? Why not have runoffs all the way up from local to presidential when no one receives more than fifty percent of the votes?
No great number of people is ever going to throw away their vote on a third party option, because without a final runoff it doesn't make sense. I think almost every country in the world haves a runoff system, it is the only fair way for everyone. We are locked in on a course toward doom and a change of course is the only thing that is going to save us.
Many have serious doubts about any real change of course unless pressured by a new kid on the block. You may not agree, but Freddie L. Sirmans' books don't just talk about a problem they gives wise solutions. Some people need to be shaken out of denial or we are doomed.
