Good Afternoon, Mr. Hoffard
Your post does not seem to address the issue of non-partisans, yet they
are, by far, the majority of the electorate (whether or not they
actually vote). Is the implication that they should only be allowed to
vote for a candidate sponsored by a party a correct interpretation of
re: "If you assume there are no Parties and we have the same
people running for office you get the same results."
I don't understand why, if there are no parties, it is proper to assume
'we have the same people running for office'. Although I don't advocate
elimination of parties, it they are removed from the scene the dynamics
of the process change dramatically and the likelihood of having the same
candidates is slim.
