Today, I unveil an idea I've had on mind for some time now to this forum. Before you dismiss it as silliness, read and understand it carefully, then
offer your constructive criticism. Mods, if this is in the wrong category, please move it.
The Congress of the Internet, formed right here at ATS, will comprise 435 representatives and 100 senators, one from each of the districts, making up
the online version of the U.S. Congress. We'll begin with the House; those members of ATS who wish to represent, post below your congressional
district, followed by a summary of what you'd do if you were a part of the actual U.S. Congress. After we've gotten one individual for all 435
districts, we'll move on to electing the Senate, using the same process, ATS members stating their senatorial districts and again constructing a
summary. Once all 535 positions have been filled, our Congress will begin. Representatives can propose legislation and other representatives can vote
on them, just like they would in a real congress. This entire charade is for entertainment purposes only. We can see from this what a Congress of real
citizens would look like and do.
Further notes: in the event that more than one member wishes to represent the same district, the vote on who ultimately wins the seat will go to the
rest of the ATS community.
Thank you for reading. Again, your comments are much appreciated.
