Facebook or any group really, could create mock online democracy with first Tuesday mock voting. Then we dictate to our reps what we want. If they dont do it, they are voted out. Oligarchs cant fight that. Google could do it too - or CNN. It has to be a separate page.

Can we start rallying for REAL DEMOCRACY? We can set it up online. It's the ONLY out of the box craetive idea I have yet heard to change the arc of democracy - here and abroad even. Relying on HUMANS with too much power - will NEVER work.


Facebook, Google, CNN could UNDO what they did - in two weeks - and SAVE Democracy

I hear what you're saying and don't totally disagree, but America would soon be a BOT-ocracy. Hackers and spoofers and bot-nets can easily overwhelm an online poll to the point where the real desire of the people would be lost.

Is war on the menu for 2020 elections?

Thom plus logo We complain that democracy is under assault from Donald Trump, but he's just a cog in a much larger worldwide machine that is tearing down democratic self-governance.
