RCV in Maine!
I am reading today the comments about RCV and peoples opposition to it. I happen to agree with it. Others don't, saying that it's not the will of the people as far as first round votes. I found it to be a fair way of ranking choices, and if you choose not to rank choices or choose to mark all the boxes for the same candidate, you still are given that choice. I ran as an independent in this past election for the Maine State House. RCV was not used in state elections this time, but I sincerely hope it will be implemented for the simple reason that it gives common people without the resources of the 2 parties a chance of participating in their government. I could never have matched the money and infrastructure of the 2 parties. And yes, I have believed for a long time that the system is heavily weighted towards Party candidates who DO have the backing, meaning force fed or the lesser of two evils. The 2 party system is corrupt and will continue to be until we use a better method that levels the field for everyone. The 2 major parties have too much power over our politics. Just observe the past and you will see it. Party line politics are dividing and killing our beloved country! That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it!
May peace be within you and may you pass it to others in your life!
