Top Two: The Biggest Danger to the Electoral System: Ben Swann Interviews Christina Tobin

You’d think the political controllers would be happy and content with the advantages they’ve built into the electoral system they’ve crafted for themselves.

They have made the rules, they control a large part of the media and you’d think (or at least hope) that they’d sit back and relax for a bit.

The truth is the big money overlords of the two-party system are never satisfied and in 2012 nothing was more evident of their tenacious drive to lock up power then the “Top Two” initiative in Arizona.

Top Two is a system where you only get to vote for the top two primary vote getters. It’s a system where incumbents never (or rarely) lose. For example, in Louisiana where To Two is the law, after 30 years of only one incumbent has ever lost.

The good news is Top Two crashed and burned in Arizona in 2012. It went up in flames thanks to your efforts and the efforts of honest journalists like Ben Swann who helped us get the word out and expose Top Two for what it really was! A charade!

I appeared on Ben's show before the election and had the opportunity to talk about Top Two and expose the threat it was to the electoral system on a national stage.

Today Ben shared the video from that show with me and as I watched, it became obvious that Top Two was more then a bad idea, it was evidence of the insatiable gluttony the elite have for control and the fact that they’ll never give up. They’ll never stop!

What they don’t know is that we’ll never stop either.

So take a moment now to watch the very brief but powerful video interview with Ben Swann and know that if Top Two pops its head up in 2014 we’ll be there.

Sincerely,

Christina Tobin

Good interview. I'd never heard of this. It's worth the four minutes of time to watch.

When it comes to voter suppression, nothing beats a good dose of Dem/Rep nonsense.

Big thanks to Christina for attempting to educate the populace this past election and another big thanks to Larry King for adding to the process.
