3RT:13 – Don’t Blame Me, I Voted Owl
Forever voting for the lesser of two evils sucks. So why not vote third party? A.Ron uses an animal kingdom framework developed in a video by CGP Grey to explain why third parties struggle to get off the ground in America, and discusses strategies of how we can change the system to allow us to vote for a candidate that actually represents us and allow third parties the chance to flourish.
Please give CGP Grey’s original video, “The Problem With First Past the Post Voting Explained,” a watch. It’s such a brilliant and concise way to educate people on the perils of winner-take-all voting.
If you’re as convinced we need alternate voting systems as we are, please check out the FairVote.org project. They are working at the federal, state, and local level to make fairer systems like ranked-choice voting available to citizens everywhere.
A.Ron will be talking with Bastiat on Twitch.TV live Thursday, 5/14 around 8pm EST about Neo-liberalism, the future of economics, if socialism will ever be a viable way to organize a society, and more! If you miss the live show, we’ll post our side of the video on our YouTube page and will be using the audio in a future 3RT show.
Finally, we have merch! Treat yourself to some stuff emblazoned with 3RT, OWT, or Swizzbold logos! Start a conversation! They make good votin’ shirts.
