Imagine That

Steve Newton at Delaware Libertarian engages in a speculative fantasy in which hell freezes over, "the GOP makes a push for a parliamentary system in Congress" and each duopoly party effectively fractures along the lines of its constitutive coalition: libertarians and conservatives on the right, greens and progressives on the left, etc, coexisting side by side with the former duopoly parties, one imagines. Returning from his flight of fancy, DL notes, however, that "there's really no mechanism in existence" to make this happen. On the contrary, such a mechanism exists, but goes unexploited. Ironically, it is actually quite simple: join a third party, support its candidates and vote for them.
