We need Gold States and Green States

If we start running independents in states that are "safe blue" or "safe red", things will start to shake loose, and force them to focus on more than 4 or 5 states. This year, it has started in Maine and Vermont.

In the presidential race, if the 3 or 4 other candidates focused their resources on 1 state each- model it after a Senate campaign, the psychological effect alone would be worth it. The electoral maps would look like a patchwork quilt.
