Trump Reaches Out to Christian Conservatives [WaPo]
Trump reached out to Christian conservative and evangelical audiences at an event in NY yesterday. I was waiting for this to see how it will play out in terms of 3rd parties. What I should’ve expected but didn’t was that he did so by taking an pro-life / anti-abortion position. (specifically, in his potential picks for the Supreme Court).

So, being pro-choice myself and feeling strongly about it, I reiterate for the umpteenth time: The choice of Trump vs Hillary is an absolutely horrible one. You lose either way.
The only way to get out of this ongoing 2-party trap is to vote for a 3rd party, and to bring the US electoral system into the 20th or 21st century, by adopting Ranked Choice / Instant Runoff voting for presidential elections, as well as Proportional Representation for legislatures. These are well tested voting processes used worldwide that let you vote for a candidate who really represents your positions, without “throwing away” your vote. I urge everyone to read up on these 2 important electoral system features that for some reason the US does not have.
