John T. Reed’s sweet sixteen tournament for choosing the president

Posted by John T. Reed on

It may be that the Democrat debates are over. By the time the next one happens—March 15th—the delegates from 21 states will already have been chosen. Based on money, it appears only the billionaires and Bernie will be left then.

America need to go to my sweet-sixteen tournament system which, by the way, awards no automatic ballot space to parties regardless of how well they did in any prior election. Only candidate names are on the ballots after the first one—no party names. Parties can exist and nominate someone, but that will not get him or her on the ballot. The people, and oly the people, no party national committee or super delegates or any of that will get a candidate’s name on the final ballot.
