Appeal to anyone who wants electoral college portest heard at the 11/18 rally
13 Nov 2000
Make a statement against the electoral college at the 11/18 protest along with asking for re-vote in Florida. At the last protest there was a little more dominance of the florida issue than the electoral college, make sure all grievances are voiced at this rally concerning a popular vote not deciding the presidency.
I urge everyone who feels that having an electoral college system in place to come out to the protest on 11/18 in the Boston Commons at the capital steps. A re-vote in florida should happen but the only way to permantely curb the problem a non-determining popular vote is to end the electoral college. These protests are not just partisan rallies to get Gore in office, they are for voter reform at large, come out and make sure that message is heard. If we have instant run-off voting it will benefit both third parties and those who feel the election is geared to make a choice between the lesser of two evils, it would let you rank who you are voting for and if no majority candidates are chosen it eliminates the lowest and retabulates the vote minus the candidate with the least votes. This takes away any amunition from those who say Nader votes take votes away from Gore, who's to say they won't rank gore second. At this last protest this issue was sorted of shuffled aside at some points, we need to make sure it is heard at the next rally as it has been in Philadelphia and Athens, Georgia. Countercoup set themselves up to faciliate a people's movement, don't let it get dominated by narrow agenda. sign up at trustthepeople-boston-subscribe (at) egroups.com to get more info and discuss the rally or check it out at egroups.com
