I've said this before, and I'll say it again - we need to switch to a proportional representation system. This would allow, smaller "3rd" parties to gain some power and influence, and would force more accountability.

Will you join me in this fight?
This would require a change in the Constitution which would require 3rd party power representation in Congress...not to mention the countless federal, state and local laws used to squash the 3rd parties ability to function.

Without 3rd party power to begin with the idea of proportional representation is a mute point.

After realizing this, I'd say the only way to logically support the proportional representation system would be to support 3rd parties effective immediately.
