    House Republicans plan online community, to find a voice and set the tone


    ...Called "America Speaking Out," the site borrows from the approaches of popular Web sites such as Wikipedia and Amazon.com. Starting this week, people will be able to go to http://www.americaspeakingout.com, submit ideas, rate those of others, and post their comments on Facebook and Twitter through the site.

    The most prominent users will earn "badges," though the GOP has not yet determined what rewards people could get. House Republicans also will go on the site and interact with users. Up to a dozen staff members will be monitoring the Web site, party aides said, both to keep it running properly and to filter out inappropriate messages.

    It appears this is part of a larger plan to communicate directly with the voters heading into the November elections.

    Well done!

    Coming in soon: Survivor, D.C.!

    We get to vote politicians out of Washington... Only to replace them, of course, with other politicians...

    The Contract With America helped secure a decisive victory for the Republicans in the 1994 elections. And in November, history will repeat itself.

    Who did they get to make this website? Most graphic designers and artists are those terrible "progressives"...
