I don't know if this topic has come up on this forum before, but in case it has not, I believe it it worth stating. At the start of this country, the founding fathers needed some sort of democracy to keep the people of the United States "in the loop." Congress was the best option at the time. Up until very recently, it was the best option. But as we enter the information age, this may no longer be true. I propose that we start using the internet as a alternative to congress. Yes, the initial cost of setting up servers that large would be quite a bit, but in the long run, the amount we pay our senators and representatives would very likely be much much more. I also understand that some people do not have access to the internet. This dilemma could be remedied fairly easily by having permanent kiosks in town halls and other similar buildings that that allow these very people to vote if they so choose. Hopefully people will read this post and please, by all means amend this proposition however much you feel is necessary, and if you agree with the idea, please share it! I really would like nothing more than for this thread to be discussed, argued, and fixed by the very people who should be making the decisions in this country, the citizens of the United States of America.
