Urgent Demand for Electoral and Campaign Finance Reforms

To: Rep. D'Esposito, Sen. Schumer, Pres. Biden, Sen. Gillibrand

From: A constituent in Lynbrook, NY

June 29

The American people are furious. The systems that shape our elections and political life are fundamentally flawed and skewed against us. It’s time for a radical overhaul to restore true democracy and representation. The current two-party system is obsolete and limits our choices. We need to implement ranked-choice voting and proportional representation to allow for more diverse and genuine political options. Our campaign finance system is corrupt. Big donors and lobbyists wield too much power, undermining the integrity of our elections. We must introduce public funding for campaigns and impose strict limits on donations to ensure that politicians represent the people, not wealthy interests. The Electoral College is a relic that distorts democracy. It should be reformed or abolished to reflect the national popular vote, making every vote count equally and ensuring fairer elections. Additionally, the Democratic National Committee must change its approach. If defeating Donald Trump is truly the goal, the DNC must nominate a progressive candidate with real appeal to the voters, such as Bernie Sanders, Cornel West, or Jill Stein. The current nominee, President Biden, is unlikely to win. Traditional media tactics no longer work in the age of the internet and social media, and voters see through them. The frustration of the American people is intense and rising. If you fail to act on these reforms, you risk further angering an already disillusioned public. The time for action is now. The future of our democracy is at stake, and your decisions will determine its course.
