Just saw this on the news. For those of us who are outraged at our congress for sitting by while this administration takes this country down a
dangerous path, there is a small hope of making yourself heard - and actually having an effect.
I haven't had time to find sites like this, but it's clear that more of this sort of grassroots networking is imperative. I will post a link and
just paste what the site's front page states.
If you planning on voting in the November 2006 elections, then this is an excellent site. Even if you don't you can see the possibilities and power
the Internet provides to the citizens of this country. Let's take it back.
From the site
Our most powerful means to guarantee a bright future for this country is an INTELLIGENT VOTE.
This website will, in just 10 minutes, enable you to cast an INTELLIGENT VOTE regarding your current Senators and Representative in the upcoming 2006
national election in November. The system will build your political profile by having you read summaries of the most important issues voted on in the
U.S. Congress in the past six years, and then allowing you to cast your vote. It then compares your political profile to the voting record of your
Representative and Senators and provides a summary similar to that below:
Your Senator, Mr. Brown, voted in-line with you 20% of the time
Your Senator, Mr. Dough, voted in-line with you 50% of the time
Your Representative, Mrs. Smith, voted in-line with you 80% of the time.
From this, you will be able to cast an INTELLIGENT VOTE.
In addition to helping you determine if you should re-elect your Congressman; this site can be used by people like yourself to provide our Senators
and Representatives information on how we think they SHOULD vote on Upcoming Critical Votes – BEFORE THEY VOTE.
If this site becomes popular, millions of Americans will be able to influence the direction of this country many times per year and change the way
politics are done in Washington …for the better!
To begin, select the line from the Main Menu (to the left) – Should I Re-elect my Congressman"
