Capitalist Paradise Regional Message Board
I'm pretty sure it is and if it's not I'm unliking.
I'm late to the discussion but if the electoral college is abolished then voting for the the house of representatives needs to be based on total votes for each party. Instead of representatives being tied to districts they would vote their own minds. Basically you vote for a president and then a party.
The only thing tied to the states is senator seats.
There are 435 seats in the HOR. Let's say republican and Democratic Party each poll at around 45% of the total votes each. Give each party let's say 200 seats each that would give roughly 35 seats to the minor parties like libertarian and green parties. Let's say 15 votes each that leaves 5 spots to other smaller parties. Let's say the multiple socialist parties unify into a singular party and snag a seat or two.
This would allow both republican and Democratic parties move back closer to the center of the political spectrum. It gives value to third parties and forces the big parties to talk to other parties.
Well the "only" manipulative thing would be who gets the seats for each party. The only way to "elect" someone would be party primaries. Maybe a list of candidates give people the option of voting for 5 of them. candidates only have to register in the big states or the little ones.
In short some people may not run in places like Idaho or Wyoming but would run in California and Texas. Some small campaigns could gain votes just by registration in those states and run a bear bone campaign. Being a good or at least a well known HOR member could help with donations and make it easier to get reelected.
