In 2014, nearly one third of voters that voted in 2012 wasted their vote by not voting. if just half of those voters had voted in 2014 it would have totaled 20% of the vote.
If we could mobilize those voters to register at www.onedemand.org a commitment to only vote for small contribution candidates in 2018 and if no small contribution candidates are on their ballot (primary and general) to cast a write in vote with their own name to register a vote against the Big Money candidates and create and demonstrate demand for small contribution candidates in future elections then we could easily achieve 20% of the 2018 vote.
This would completely change the dynamic and begin to reduce the influence of Big Money in our election process. This would encourage more citizens to participate in 2020 and with each subsequent election.
There’s another 24 million reasons (at least) that this keeps happening- people keep voting for the Big Money candidates. If you vote for Big Money candidates then you will get Big Money legislators.
And another 24 million reasons (at least) is all the people that spend their time complaining in comment sections while not making any effort to bring about the necessary change. I am not accusing anyone here of that, though it is possible.
One way to bring about the needed change is to sign the Ralph Nader petition and contact the Ralph Nader Radio Hour to get him to help promote this assault on the Big Money politicians.
