Let me thank both Kristofer and Juho for their helpful realism concerning the practical possibilities of achieving electoral reforms.  I would only want to add  the reminder that some 20 states in the USA (like California) legally would allow their citizens to change their existing electoral system as a result of a majority vote in a referendum that had been required by enough of their citizens earlier signing the relevant 'initiative'.  In these states, citizens could vote for Thanksgiving even when the current politicians (i.e.the turkeys) are refusing to do so.
