This is for a nationwide nonpartisan movement to relocate US Reps to our Local Districts, US Senators to our State Capitals, and State Reps & State Senators to our City Halls/Courthouses to securely telecommute for no less than 75% of their terms to increase voter access and lower lobbying and overall corruption.

This idea was actually proposed to US Congress on September 14th, 2001 as a highly recommended national security upgrade that was passed on because Congress members supposedly are not reliable enough to show up for votes and committees if allowed to telecommute.

Intended to raise awareness and not simply promote a website. If this runs afoul of current rules, please suggest a better way to present this material.

You're idea is great, but......

Not bad, and I like the idea but to be honest when I come to Newgrounds it's to play some timewasting games and not have to worry about the world. I can go to FOX or CNN if I want to read a political discussion. Really just the wrong place for the topic I think.


eCongress responds:

True, but the flip side is that those that are into politics don't normally understand how easy it would be to convert to this system.

So you've got younger generations who totally understand how to do this, but aren't interested vs. older generations that like the idea but can't comprehend how it would work.

Uploading it here is just trying to bridge the gap some how. Plus nonstop reports about debt, war, etc. are depressing where this is the kind of idea that could fix tons of that stuff.

But again, this site is a vacation away from those kinds of things.

Well

Well I suppose it was a little funny and sent the point but ads are looked down upon here, as much as it pains me to say there is a good chance this wont become popular anytime soon.
Voted 3 out of 5.
Power of 4.90 votes.


eCongress responds:

So, do you recommend just removing the "website?"

A few hundred views on this site per video still helps even if this isn't the ideal demographic.

Good idea but

You must realize majority of the people on this site can't vote. And will probably never write to a rep or senator to voice their opinion, because they don't understand the subject. People come to this site for flash games, movies, and porn.

That's the kind of feedback I was looking for to see if it's worth putting the videos on this site or not.
