The "Count My Vote" campaign sounds very good on the surface — of course we all want our votes to count.
But this campaign is the BCS of politics — it ensures that only the big boys with the big money get to play. Instead of meeting privately with delegates who can ask detailed questions, candidates are forced to spend thousands of dollars on advertising campaigns, full of "sound bites" with not much substance.
With the current caucus system, you are free to elect delegates who represent your views, and can take the time to research the issues. It is true grass roots representation. Count My Vote will end up representing the views of those with the money.
