Liberty on the Rocks - Approval Voting

Tavern Style Politics with Sen. Tim Neville, Rep. Libby Szabo, & David K. Williams, Jr., Esq.

State Legislative Mid-Session Report”

Liberty On The Rocks (Red Rocks) Happy Hour

 Here's a rundown of this week's jam-packed schedule:

 30 Second Soapbox” - Your time, your causes. Let your voice be heard!

Ask an Austrian” - It's the economy, stupid!!!

This week, share something you've discovered in your own research of Austrian Economics.

 Approval Voting”

What is it? Why should I care?

On this Super Tuesday eve,David K. Williams, Jr.will give a short overview of an alternative voting method that offers greater civility and choice.  Approval Voting is the answer to election spoilers, sabotage of philosophical allies, and polarization of constituents, while increasing civility among candidates and their supporters. Approval Voting lets the voter cast a vote for more than one candidate - it removes the "vote for only one" restriction. The winner is the candidate that collects the most votes. No longer will the voter face the dilemma of being forced to vote for either an “electable” candidate or to “waste” his vote. With Approval Voting, the voter can vote for both!

Perot in 1992 and Nader in 2000 are not 100 year election events! These are the problems with the current election (first past the post) system:

too many election spoilers
too much sabotage
too much polarization, and
not enough civility

With Approval Voting, the voter is not forced to vote for the lesser of two evils. No more 'holding your nose,' while you cast your vote for the 'electable candidate.' With Approval Voting you will never 'waste' your vote on an underdog candidate who matches your political philosophy.

    Another exciting LOTR(RR) night to put it mildly. Thank you Senator Tim Neville, Rep. Libby Szabo, and David K. Williams, Jr.! To liven things up, we were honored to have a 30 second soapbox from former Congressman Tom Tancredo promoting the upcoming visit of Trevor Loudon (details at Also an interesting experience with a couple alternative voting techniques with the following results for current candidates: Paul - 1st, Romney - 2nd in one format, and Romney - 1st, Paul - 2nd in another.

    The expected advocate for Approval Voting was not in attendance, nor was the expected LPCOLORADO Treasurer (of course, not the responsibility of the moderator).
    The best presence was the server, efficient and effective. The speakers "wandered," except for the untouted comments from a former member of Congress who has a "hard on" for Obama.
