Yes On Three

Our 'vaunted' two-party system leaves much to be desired

I need to thank The News Tribune for printing Burt Talcott’s lesson in political archeology (Viewpoint, 10-6).

Talcott seems to remember a time when the two dominant political parties actually stood for different philosophies. He refutes his own argument that instant runoff voting would destroy the two-party system by the admission that the results of IRV elections vary little from those of regular elections.

The “vaunted” two-party system? Vaunted by whom? Perhaps by the two parties that managed to force it on the public back around the turn of the 20th century.

The voters deserve a chance to use IRV in Pierce County and to lead the way in the state to the ultimate goal of IRV for all.
