When I board a plane, I want to know the pilot got their license through rigorous training and demonstration of aptitude.
It’s like that with politics. I want our laws being shaped by individuals who have demonstrated that they can win a fair election, that their ideas are more in line with the will of the people who live and work, and raise families where I do.
I don’t want our laws being shaped by leaders who had to cheat in order to win. I’m not sure why anybody would want that. If you won a game of chess but started with 5 queens, are you really good at chess, or are you just a cheater?
In a representative democracy like America, it only works if it’s fair. That should be paramount.
