Proposition 14 was created by career politicians for the advantage of and benefit of career politicians but advertised with voter delusions.
However, Proposition 14, “Top-Two“ can be amended and modified to be turned into solid voter empowerment. It takes an “outlaw“ to stop politics-as-usual (PU).
Here is the California U.S. Senator “outlaw“ candidate that has made “VetoTopTwo“ the “IssueTopOne“ for California voters on November 2, 2010.
Here are the two objectives for voter majority to select their desired candidates:
THE POLITICAL PARTIES HAVE TO PAY FOR THEMSELVES, NOT THE TAXPAYERS!
The “Primary“ should be for the political parties to select their preferred candidate and they can use any internal process they desire. But NOT as an external county ballot election process paid for by taxpayers.
THE ELECTORATE MUST HAVE THE MOST OPTIONS WHEN VOTING IS FOR REAL.
The “General“ must be for ALL candidates: The political party “Primary“ designees + all independent minded candidates that are registered in whatever political party they chose + all Nonpartisan unaffiliated candidates. Write-ins must be on the official list from Secretary of State. The voters rank the candidates to achieve one of them will receive 50%+ voter approval. First Preference to Last Preference (Last Preference is actually voter rejection). The First Preference candidate with the fewest first votes is eliminated … with that voters next preference then counted. This repeats until the leading preference candidate gets 50%+.
The candidates with the most rejection votes are also tabulated to quantify and qualify voter opinion. A General Election is expensive to the taxpayers and, as a comprehensive and most accurate political poll of voter attitudes, it is much too valuable a voter referendum to ignore or waste.
