I appologize if i insulted you,let me explain the issues i see in the system
lets assume 99% people want a single leader. This would not even make it
more likely that a single leader would be selected than if just 1% of the
people want a single leader.

IMHO the question 1 leader vs, leader team vs. even split leader team of both
sides. needs to be voted upon seperately at the least.

There are possibly other things too, like people should be able to propose
options to vote upon it shouldnt be decided by the one setting up the vote.
This is how votes in debian work, people propose options

they as if into a greater darkness enter who devote themselves
to the Knowledge alone. -- Isha Upanishad
