I am not sure what I am more impressed by - your continuing tenacity to fighting for a system which has long since abandoned any resemblance to democracy or your inability to face the fact that the USA is now a banana republic for keeps, with a foreign debt that would match the best banana
republics of lore ...

Pessimism takes us the way of the dodo, solipsist or the suicide. We have to have hope in the decent.

Absent any support from our "elected officials" I am pretty pessimistic myself. Is the desire merely "to do something?"

I ache to take action as well. I'd like some direction.

What is our best case senario?

We have to try to build a momentum to get the public to think that our democracy is at risk. I think the best way to do this is to talk about it and contact as many people of influence who will spread the message

It would be great if while we are talking about hard copy ballots that we could use the time and space to educate others on the advantages of Instant Runoff Voting (IRV).
