One of the reasons why the Party of Commons supports Washington's controversial "Top 2" primary system, is because we believe it represents the best chance for minor party or non-establishment candidates to actually win and take office. We won't go over the details of "Top 2" in this essay, that's been covered before. The point is that "Commons" is trying to get a plurality or majority of the votes, not just going through the exercise of making political points for the sake of it. There are issues that are fundamentally important to us, like banning drones and nukes (all nukes whether for armaments or energy) and pulling out of the latter day Pax Romana, and we are consistently trying to get the people behind us. Many will call it "Pollyanna," but this is about humanity and the survival of the species more than anything.

We often wonder how people can actually talk about some sort of sweeping revolution, when they can't even keep themselves from marking ballots for the same old Establishment candidates, a.k.a. Democrats and Republicans, even when provided with a sensible alternative. Nonetheless, Commons is steadily making progress in getting votes through old-fashioned democracy. According to Confucious, known for wisdom in his time, the journey of a thousand miles begins with making the journey in the first place.
