This is actually a non-profit started with the goal of getting a third-party candidate on the ballot. It has been progressing for quite some time now; at least since 2011. And it is true that Americans elect candidates. A lot of Americans even ‘vote’ by not voting. This means they experience their frustration with the system of government by choosing not to choose a candidate. See what you think of Americans Elect. Is it innovative? Is it rebellious? Is it positive, negative, or both? You have to decide that on your own.
