    proportional representation. There's no reason for the vast, vast majority of voters in the country to have no impact on the result because their district is too red or too blue. If you want to vote for a party, your vote should further that party getting more seats plain and simple. Plus it's just not fair that we can only have two parties because if we don't the other side will win with a split vote. I just don't see us ever doing that because we aren't likely to totally reshape our electoral system under the constitution and we sadly don't have the initiative nationwide.
