Deflect and divert.
I assume you agree with my post or you would refute it.

Another of the feel good measure put up by the Leftists - however done with the intent of the ruling party staying in power and being able to squelch any opposition.

Did you notice that greater than 10.5% of the ballots were either spoiled or marked incorrectly?

And the Leftists are good with those numbers as long as they maintain power.

From the Article;

"There was no voter error category in 2005. In 2009, 6.43 percent (2,958) of the ballots cast had errors specific to RCV. They were ultimately counted because voter intent could be ascertained. There is no indication that spoiled ballots and voter error ballots changed the outcome of any election in Minneapolis, but they accounted for 10.54 percent of all the ballots casts in 2009."

The US Constitution does guarantee one man one vote. In fact the Wise Old White Guys did not want ANYONE to vote if they did not have "Skin in the Game".

They knew about the 10% Defective even then.

These Defectives have always been the bane of Humanity. Clearly none of the 10% have any "Skin in the Game" or they would not be in the 10%.

Today Amerika is under the Control of many from the 10% that rose up in the Political System because of Cronyism, Free Shaat, and Corruption, both Politically, and morally among their constituents.

Without the 10%, the Peoples Demokrat Party of Amerika would not exist!

Can there be any doubt that the State and Federal Bureaucracy is infested completely with the 10%'ers? Almost 100% of these dependents with Government Jobs VOTE Demokrat!

Including the Government Schools!

We the People are in charge of who gets to vote.

We the People can stop the Mass Suicide that we have allowed the Official Victims and Political Correctness to cause in our Republic!

They might just find their problem this coming election.

Can you imagine the screaming and hysteria when they have 13 candidates for Mayor Archie's job and the strongest candidate in round one getting 9% of the votes as the top candidate?

By the time they sort out the winner, no one will know what the process was and whether it is the correct outcome.
