The one brave enough to set up a simple call in line for there daily voting docet. How hard would it be to have a 1-800# that when you call it answers. Todays bill "the bailout bill" press 1 for yes i support it or 2 i do not support. Make the numbers known and i believe this is all a democracy would need to figure out who to vote for.

I.E. Sen. #^$#%&^ district voted no on this bill by a 85-15% margin and he still voted yes. He therefore infact believes 100% that he is smarter than you or was hidding info from you.

Let's make that a law! i would support that pork. Seems easy enough but hey who likes accountability to those you serve.

I bet you would even be able to get a PSA to get the number out. How empowered would the people be.

people should take this seriously. i know at first thought a 800 # may sound silly or trite. But i can't think of any better way to find out how accurately a politician makes his votes to what we desire...simple concept yes. but remember: KISS
Keep It Simple Stupid
i love this...star and flag.

yes but who will be responsible for making sure that :

1. all votes are counted
2. noone votes twice.
3. governmetn actually goes with it
4.stop government from doing whatever the hell it wants anyway,


its a great idea. but not feasible

I agree with point 1 of yours but, the fear of failure should not stiffle our chance to grow. And i think it could get close.

#2 I'm not a telecommunications wizz but you would think there would be a simple way or at least A way.

At least it gets a closer and would definetly show a pattern by reps. for the people.

the fact that people voted more thne once was actually a big problem for american idol and other vote by phone programs. people bought some kind of auto callers that kept calling the same number over and over.

I also think we could get past #2 with a simple enter the last 4 of your social and a password. Only let that individual obviosly vote once per issue.

not feasable? i trust american idol voting more than the voting machines we are soposed to trust....of course it's feasable, the word "can't" should not be an option here. don't be a no-load can't %#$^ and feed the belief that we can;'t have our voice heard please! deny ignorance!

i guess your right with enough time and money alot can be accomplished. if the government was serious about gettign the people more involved this would be a great way to do it. more people would vote and that means more people would have their voices heard and no more standing outside for hours waitng to vote.


press 1 for mccain/palin press 2 for barrack/biden.

possible, but not talking about election lines talking about opinion lines. I don't even think the cost would be great. I think it would be belittled and never mentioned by the MSM though so the toughest part would be getting the word out.

I also do not mean it as my congressman grabs a sheet of paper that tells him how to vote, i mean it as an accountability measure to show there level of attachment to there voters in there precint.

Had a smoke and solved the problem..... Just have Credit companies, light co., power co., water co., trash co., take care of it. They always get there money, usually over the phone and get it right.
