1. It's worth a closer look
This actually sounds like a good idea if it is done right however a quick look at the organizational set up raises some doubts. They're too controlling and they don't offer much information about what they're doing. Instead they seem more concerned with gathering information, possibly for their own unstated purposes. If they turn out to be in favor of electing candidates at a grass roots level that are directly accountable to the public that would be great. this would work much better if we had Instant Run-off elections; however even without it would be better than either electing corporate candidate A or B. Unfortunately for now I'm skeptical that this is what they intend.
