"Following the presidential election of 2020, the idea crystallized in my mind that America's problem isn't the result of individual leaders or individual actions, but rather it's the product of a massive, self-serving system in which the two parties serve as competitors AND referees.

Given the choice, I choose the version of hard that unites people instead of dividing them. I choose to fight for people instead of fighting with them."
"I believe that for America to achieve its true potential, we must eliminate the two-party system. It is obstructionist, inefficient, and fails to govern effectively.

Open primaries and ranked-choice voting are critical to setting the conditions for this to occur."

When we moved from IL I explained to our new neighbors that IL had some long-term issues (2 former governors in jail in my lifetime) and was sadly broken.
