The following video is for Petition 54 in Oregon, the “Unified Primary.” (Petition 55, the “Open Primary” is also underway.)
According to this video:
“We are going to make the vote equal for the first time in American history by getting rid of the two things that make us unequal; the closed primary, which now silences more than half of us, and the vote-splitting spoiler effect that diminishes our voice for each additional candidate we like and compels us to choose only the lesser of the two evils.
“We are establishing a unified primary that lets us all support all the candidates we like and then lets us all choose between the two We the People support the most.
“To make this the law, we’ve got to get it on the ballot. We’ve got three weeks to collect 87,000 signatures. The weather is beautiful, almost everyone we talk to on the street is totally into it.
“We are launching three simultaneous programs to collect 100,000 signatures each and we invite you to join in the fun.
“The First Program, kinda the bottom tier of the Democracy Pyramid, we call “100,000 Portland Slackers United, or Whatever.” All you got to do is download a form from the website, print it out, sign it, send it in, or meet up with one of our teams at one of the many events we will be at over the next few weeks. Your prize? The opportunity to have an Equal Vote for the first time in the history of the country. Sweet.
“You are going to have to do a little bit more if you want the good stuff. So Program Number Two is called, “10,000 Oregon Superstars Unified To Make Voting Not Suck Anymore.” 10,000 people download the mobilization kit, print out one double-sided form, sign it, get nine of your friends to join you, send it in. Here’s what you get; the opportunity to have an Equal Vote for the first time in the history of the country, and a really sweet button, and your name forever emblazoned on the Oregon Superstars’ page for future generations to sing your praises.
“The final program, the top tier of the Democracy Pyramid, we call, “1,000 United Oregonians to Unfuck the Vote.” 1,000 people completing the full mobilization kit. Ten signatures on each page times ten pages takes a few hours over a couple of afternoons to get it done. And what’s a few hours talking to folks about equality?
“Now do you see what we are really doing here? This isn’t three separate programs, this is one friendly competition to see which school in Oregon earns ultimate bragging rights forever. The school that made the Equal Vote happen for the first time in the history of this country. This competition is open to everyone, not just current students; all you have to do is tell us what team you are playing for.
“87,000 signatures. The race is on. Let’s unfuck the vote.”
