Sennet,   IRV grossly violates the one person/one vote requirement
because, even if all voters rank the same number of candidates, say 3,
some voters never have their 2nd or 3rd choices considered, even
though their 1st choice loses, whereas other voters may have all 3
choices considered or have their 1st choice win.  Range voting at
least uses a fundamentally fair counting method, unlike IRV, which can
easily eliminate the favorite candidate of a majority of voters and,
most often, does not elect a candidate supported by a majority of

Due to cultural evolution, IRV will? finally be enacted and end all the wars caused by parliament, the govt. of war.
