Please vote for one of my entries to the Looking at Democracy contest Click to see:
Towards a Two-Legged Democracy
Making Democracy Real – The argument for legislative juries
Each is near the 3-minute maximum allowed by the contest. They are stylistically different but thematically the same.
Each one points out that, in a true democracy, balloting is used primarily for policy matters. That is what I am asking you to do in this instance … to vote for what a true democracy is.
But they also explain that, in a true democracy, sortition (as used to select candidates for jury duty) is the method to select legislators.
I hope you enjoy the presentations. Please vote for your favorite.
P.S. Help put this idea on the national agenda by forwarding to a friend, posting on Facebook and Tweeting.
To friends outside the U.S. — This applies to all purported democracies. Please vote also!
