Vote for sortition at the Looking at Democracy contest

Please vote for one of my entries to the Looking at Democracy contest Click to see:

Towards a Two-Legged Democracy

Making Democracy Real – The argument for legislative juries

Making Democracy Reality

Each is near the 3-minute maximum allowed by the contest. They are stylistically different but thematically the same.

Each one points out that, in a true democracy, balloting is used primarily for policy matters. That is what I am asking you to do in this instance … to vote for what a true democracy is.

But they also explain that, in a true democracy, sortition (as used to select candidates for jury duty) is the method to select legislators.

I hope you enjoy the presentations. Please vote for your favorite.

P.S. Help put this idea on the national agenda by forwarding to a friend, posting on Facebook and Tweeting.

To friends outside the U.S. — This applies to all purported democracies. Please vote also!
