Here’s a proposal for a different way of representation to be determined by election, the so-called Fair Vote Act. Putting aside my pet peeve about that sort of naming (as well as ostentatiously “designed” logos and pleas for donation), there’s some interesting points here that I’d love to see argued over so we can get an honest idea of the pros and cons of this proposal. My own take so far is that I’m frankly not in favor of more “democracy” nor “making government work better.” But… anything with the potential to break the Mafia stronghold of Team Red and Team Blue (and their respective donors) has merits worth discussing.

One thing that stood out to me is the strong probability of total gridlock and ineffectiveness. But perhaps there’s a downside as well.

Talk amongst yourselves.
