Cooper, Daniel <danc19fr@yahoo.com> (12345) St. Ismier (Grenoble) France;
I am an engineer with broad scientific and mathematical training. I am very concerned about freedom and democracy, and have looked carefully at various voting reform systems as a non-partisan way to improve this. I have lived in Europe for 9 years and have seen how system of elections affects the process and the results. | |I have concluded that Range Voting would be the optimal reform. This method would reduce the incentive for negative campaigning. It favors a psychological shift from comparing candidates to evaluating each candidate on his or her merit. | |My preference is Approval Voting (range = 0..1). It is the optimal strategy for Range Voting. If even a few people use that strategy, it is best that everyone do so to preserve an equal voice for all. The purpose of an election is to elect a candidate. Detailed preferences, I believe, are better expressed in polls.

I support range voting because it could move us away from the current system in which effectively only two parties are represented in congress, and because it would help eliminate the problem of third party candidates being spoilers for the mainstream cadidates.

I have no impressive qualification, however.... I have read _Gaming the Vote_ by William Poundstone, and his discussion of the Venetian Republic's election of their doge for 500 years speaks very well of their (limited range) approval voting system. Also, this web site's discussion of bees and ants over millions of years convinces me to cast my unequivocal support for Range Voting. Yes, as a Libertarian I pray that we may elect more candidates, but far more important is that a better voting system be implemented. The two major parties started out with more than a dozen candidates each and who are their champions? John and Barak? The nation deserves a better voting method.

Although I honestly cannot see any of these initiatives getting past the deeply entrenched bureaucratic system that we have in place for this country, these are all very fair proposals and much needed. They remove much of the political tampering factor thus allowing more freedom in our government elections. Sanity must be restored to our political system.

The anti-utilitarianist influence in economics which became dominant in the 1930s is a major reason why range voting is ignored in the academic literature. It is a completely different paradigm from what Arrow, Sen, Buchannan, or other academics have considered since the current literature on voting theory and social choice really began and rediscovered Dodgson, Condorcet, etc..

I have an IQ high enough that when I was in elementary school I would have placed in the "gifted" class, except that my social skills were too low. I am good friends with most of my local church's staff (including our popular, politically active, and locally reputable pastor) and could probably get them to endorse your ballot initiative because it is a nonpartisan reform. My perspective is deferred to by my friends and most of my family when they are not sure what the scripturally correct belief or action is. I know many people dissatisfied with our nation's government and many people who are getting tired of the culture wars. I live in an area with many senior citizens, who are statistically much more likely to vote, though slightly less likely to major support changes to the current system even when to their advantage. I am unmarried and have only a part time job, so that I am capable of slightly more activism through the internet, mail, or phone than the average person even though I have insomnia and can not go door to door due to not yet attaining a driver's license. I am very passionate when it comes to issues of freedom and equality. I know many people who believe the constitution should be restored to it's proper role in government. I am some friendly relationships with differing factions and so could spread these ideas beyond my own clique. I love you, and I do so as a representative of Jesus Christ. I look forward to serving you.
