The right to cross borders should not be limited by alleged needs.

Is this article another case of prejudice against immigrants?

We need a Manhattan project to produce a carbon-free energy source. Wait a moment... We had such a project. It was called the Manhattan project.

Explanation: The SAFE Act includes ranked-choice voting, which lessens the "don't waste your vote" problem.

In the current system, you might have to vote for Adequate in order to block Horrible. In a ranked-choice system, you can vote for Perfect for the 1st choice and Adequate for the 2nd choice.
