Dr. Warren Smith and the people at CRV have presented, using historical, empirical, and mathematical evidence, a strong and well-reasoned argument for their simple common-sense democratic reforms. The unchecked growth of government, its increasing unresponsiveness to the popular will, and the unbreakable grip on power by our two-party duopoly are all serious, entrenched problems that resist resolution largely due to the effective decline of the level of democracy in our nation. More democracy is better; that's an absolute. Proposals like range voting, unbiased automatic redistricting, mandatory recorded roll-call votes on all legislation, the identification of the authors of every component of proposed legislation, and easier ballot access can not only go a long way toward resolving these stubborn issues, but will also increase people's interest, participation, and trust in our cherished democracy. Changes like those proposed here, as well as others like term limits for all federal elective offices and federal judgeships and supermajority requirements for tax increases, are long overdue. | |David Langer |Mathematics Department |Triton College |River Grove, IL

Lawyer (UTDT), LLM(NYU), LLM(NUS), LLM(UTDT), former resident of Austin, TX as exchange student in the UT School of Law, now residing in overseas. |Is a shame that the USA wants to push so-called "democracy" overseas, while at the same time not having a voting system that could be seriously called "democratic". |No voting systems are perfect, and "democracy" does not require that the system to elect official is voting -officials in the original democracy in Athens were elected largely by lottery-, but plurality, combined with single-winner districts are among the worst possible systems to choose officials based on the people's preferences. |Although I wholeheartedly agree with the proposals as regards single-winner elections, I would also advocate for reducing the instances of single-winner elections, particularly for legislative office. Multi-representative districts (e.g. Arkansas electing its four representatives in one election) following a proportional representation system (D'Hont comes to my mind), would also be conducive to less gerrymandering and better representation of people views in Congress.
