OPEN PRIMARIES: Vote no

| September 15, 2023 1:00 AM

Do not be fooled. This initiative is not what it seems. It is ranked choice voting.

Ranked choice is as unfair (socialistic) as it can be. How it works.

You have many candidates on the initial ballot. The top three proceed to the final ballet regardless of party. You get to vote for one of them, or, all three. Top vote getter wins.

How to rig the ballet. Load the initial ballet with several of the same party. The more the merrier. Campaign on their behalf. The aim is to all the final candidates on your party.

You don’t care who wins the final vote. It’s all about your party. Doesn’t matter if they get any votes from the other party voters. It doesn’t matter.

It will be on the next ballet. Vote no for this initiative.

Other states with ranked choice include Washington and Alaska. I am sure there are more.

They all turned blue shortly after passing this type initiative. Coincidence? I think not.
