  •  Ranked choice voting--KEY to Third Party building. (10+ / 0-)

    It means people can vote for a third party candidate without risking throwing the election to the dogs -- or the Republicans -- or whatever "worst choice" is currently keeping people in line.

    Occupy should make this one of their demands.  If it got established in several states, and people could see how it works, I think the idea would spread quickly. It would dramatically change the electoral politics of the United State, much for the better, making the system more responsive to changing needs of the people.  

    Third parties could grow organically, getting established on state and local levels, getting some representation in Congress, and as they were ready taking more and more power nationally.

    We need this.
