I certainly support the effort at votenoneoftheabove2016.com , please check it out!.
I do disagree with the specifics. I think that writing in None of the Above on the ballot will result in a spoiled ballot, with the resulting down-ballot votes going uncounted.
Furthermore, I disagree with the proposed petition:
I disagree with the notion of petitioning the political parties to change their ways. I disagree with the idea of election laws with the goal of facilitating and developing the growth of political parties. And I disagree with the notion that congress, all members of two political parties, should be asked to make up the laws affecting political parties.
In our current politicized government, members of congress are not legislators. They are not capable of writing legislation themselves. They are servants of the political parties, they do not represent the people. It is foolish to ask Congress to write a law that will achieve the ends we desire.
If we want a certain set of laws, we should propose specific words for those laws ourselves. I propose this.
The people are free to form political parties.
Governments at all levels are prohibited from granting privilege to political parties.
Ballot access requirements shall be equal for all, no preferential treatment shall be granted to political parties or incumbents.
No government subsidies shall be provided to political parties or their caucuses or their elections.
Political party affiliation shall not be mentioned on ballots.
The idea that the people living in 435 separate Congressional Districts can be represented by a few political parties is absurd. We are not that homogeneous. We don’t fit in the pigeon holes.
If the government was actually capable of obeying the constitution, a constitutional amendment restricting the power of political parties would be in order:
No law shall be made respecting an establishment of a political party, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.
