This week the Atlantic magazine endorsed a presidential candidate for only the fourth time in its 163 years of publishing, saying, “Two men are running for president. One is a terrible man; the other is a decent man. Vote for the decent man.” We're going to rephrase that to better fit the truth:

“Five men and two women are running for president. One is a terrible man; the other is a decent man, and five of them have no chance of winning in our painfully reductive two-party system. Until we can join other advanced democracies around the world with a ranked choice voting system, vote for the decent man.”

A blank ballot is a loaded weapon, and you might as well fill this one in first. Do you want four more years of a reckless, narcissistic, violent maniac and his lackeys, or do you want a fundamentally decent man and woman who at least appear to care about the American people?
