We do not live in a Democracy, if we did we would have more choices. In a democracy we are suppose to have free ideas, and free choices based on those ideas. Even if wished to change our government. George Washington encouraged that. If the Government isn’t working, change it. Since Democracies work on divergent points of view, and divergent choices, than we must do something about Ballot Access laws. This is the first mission of any alternative party that is elected that is not the Republicrats.
Many countries have seven political parties on the ballot. People have free choice.
Alternative Parties have never built up powerful machines in any state to overturn oppressive ballot access laws. Even when alternative parties become popular, they do not capture the hearts and minds of the people. That needs to change.
We should have free and open elections, because that what Democracy is about. Where we get freedom of choice, and make decisions best preserving our democracy.
