Negative voting

Recommended Posts

Why not allow negative voting?

Rather than voting for Kerry, I could vote against Bush. Negative votes get subtracted from positive votes.

Voting results will better represent what people are thinking. Provides less room for a third-party Perot or Nader to spoil the election, since a lot of Nader votes would turn into no-on-Bush votes.

Obviously infeasible any time soon, but just in theory?

Yeah, see the only thing that I can think of that's wrong with this idea is that most voters are just too dumb to understand the concept. Guess that's the case.

Cracks my ass up that we are the self-appointed guardians and evangelists for democracy in the world but we can't even figure out how to do it ourselves.
