best for electing govt. with the widest-possible coalitions without
These coalitions will be stronger than any hostile opposition, and
the effectively requiring the widest coalition means that every
serious voter will be represented. (non-serious voters are the ones
who vote for extremists without majority support)
The importance of this theory is that IRV or IRV+/Ranked Pairs
(IRV+ refers to "condorcet" in this message) elections should be used
in Iraq ASAP to quickly start empowering the leaders who can build
Anyway, a new website IRV4peace needs concise support for this
theory. If something like this has already been posted here, or if
members want to help write this up, that could really help.
A presentation based on either IRV or IRV+ would be fine, as the
IRV4Peace page will assume that either system is equally effective
for our purposes.
Also, a new website for http://ElectionMethods.com is in the
works. It would sure help if you want to submit some suggested
links or files. (a yahoo group and Craigslist IRV forum should be
linked from the page)
The page linked there now isn't even a homepage webpage, just a
resource until a new page is ready.
Thanks from the IRV alliance !
