    Nearly every home contains a personal computer, and each of those computers are "named" via a number, eh?

    So why can't WE vote for what WE want,

    or don't want?

    Why are we STUCK LIKE CHUCK in this "representative" / proxy type of system?

    The "representatives" have shown that they will straight-up LIE about how they will represent us, and we're STUCK with their Big Idea of what's going to be Good For Us.

    This must end.

    WE have voices,

    and we have the means to make them heard.

    Thoughts?

    A committee of 300 million might be unwieldly.

    Do you know how easy it is to hack such a system?

    Tyranny of the majority?!?

    In a democratic republic,

    the majority RULES, eh?

    If you're too stupid to figure out a computer?

    You don't need to be voting, imho.

    Why?

    With a program set to Count Votes, Pro and Con,

    it would be MUCH simpler than what we go through, right now.

    Not very, actually.

    One would have to enslave ever how many computers you could hack in order to do it.

    It wouldn't be worth anything to anyone, actually, 'cuz the costs of doing it would be EXORBITANT, and the return wouldn't be worth it.
