This iReport is part of an assignment:
Why are you an independent?
Give "The Sane Middle" a voice
In short, we live in a society where the 10-15% at the far left and far right are severely over-represented in Congress, while those of us who lean a little left or a little right have next to no representation. Basically, the “sane middle” is left out in the cold every time.
The solution? 1) Congressional term limits, and 2) districting that is blind to party, wealth, race, etc.
How do we get there? I’m not sure, but we can start by voting third party, especially in non-swing states where our votes otherwise have no impact whatsoever.
