This is a relatively new concept. Some people including me belive internet will change world much more than peopleusually think. How? In a way that after 3000 years or more since the idea of democracy was born, democracy was only a joke.

In this way, connecting people, making them politically aware, we finally have a chance of REAL democracy take its place.

I would like you to think about it, and spread the idea.

There is one link about it: a first step toward e-politics

There is a lot more about it on internet, so I am calling you to look for it. Afterall, I think that at least 20% of you people who visit politics on the shroomery think and want to act constructivly.

Ive thought the same thing ever since Clintion signed the Electronic Signature Act. Once they made electronic signatures a binding legal agreement I knew that the internet would be used heavily for political change..

A true deomcracy of 300 million people could never exist. The issues faced by this country are too great and complicated for 300 million votes everytime someone makes a motion. A national referendum would be a very nice change but referendums have recently been used by business interests to pass measures that the leg won't pass. The best and easiet why is to have volutary federally funded elections. this way people get to voice their opinions and they have the same financial footing as the big guys.

I guess you can sum it up this way. I do not trust the masses to make every descion b/c the emotional choice is not always the sound choice.
