Bradley Stephens started this petition to Congress

Our first past the post election system has created a tyrannical two party monopoly.  The Democratic and Republican party have a stranglehold on our government.  While there are substantive policy differences between their platforms, there is significant agreement on important issues that effect all Americans. 

Both parties agree on endless warfare.  Both parties agree on corporate welfare; socialism for the rich and rugged individualism for the poor.  Both parties agree that providing healthcare to all Americans is just too darn expensive.  Both parties agree that a vote for a "third" party is throwing your vote away.

Very few people fit neatly into the platform of either party and the end result is an unrepresentative democracy that caters to the needs of the affluent and major corporations while only playing lip service to the needs of average Americans to get re-elected.  It's gone on too long, our democracy is in very real peril.

The solution is simple, but execution may prove very challenging.  We must implement ranked choice voting for all federal elections.  Ranked choice voting will open our democracy to a wider range of perspectives and give voice to marginalized groups currently operating within the Democratic and Republican parties.  Regardless of your political leaning, as an American, you should support a vibrant democracy.  What we have here works very well, for the connected, but leaves many feeling they have no voice in their government.  We can change that, together.

I propose the creation of an "Objective Party" with the sole objective of restoring our democracy through electoral reform (ranked choice voting, PAC and campaign contribution transparency, elimination of gerrymandering).  The party welcomes Americans of any political orientation.  The party welcomes donations from any individual or organization that wishes to support the cause, but makes no promises beyond fighting for electoral reform.  Once the party's objectives are met, the party can dissolve, having created the conditions for the growth of new political organizations that are more reflective of our people and our ideals.
