It's not really a difficult choice, once you realize there is a choice.
The core principles of proportionality:
“In a democracy, the right of decision belongs to the majority, but the right of representation belongs to all.” Ernest Naville, Switzerland, 1865. If you don't hear from everybody, you can't know who is the majority, or what they want.
PR Voting believes the right of representation must include:
the right to freely cast a vote
the right to join your vote with others with shared interests, no matter where you and they live
The right to elect a representative
VOTES = SEATS
True majority rule
The core principles of
winner-take-all can be fair for winners and losers alike
geography is destiny - it's the defining interest of all voters
representation is a privilege; those who win get heard, those who don't, don’t
voter suppression is more than just a racist tool; it's a rational strategy in a zero-sum game
a single district "representative" can properly represent the diverse interests of all the people who live within that district.
