Let Us All Vote Online Now – Why Wait For The Future?

What happens in the future when we are all voting online in real-time? Can our society and civilization handle change at that rate of speed? Will it disrupt our culture and government, our entire system and country? Instantaneous voting would be nice, it would also harness the wisdom of the crowds, but is that a good thing with all this mass Cable TV media misdirection, that owns the mind of the masses with its daily propaganda?

Those in control would stay there, the people would demand it I suppose, but eventually get tired of BS and occasionally the powers that be would have to send down a scape goat of the political elite – or would people simply demand to ‘drain the swamp’ often enough to keep the power base on edge, truly bringing power back to the people? Let’s talk.

One of our Think Tankers Cody Hunt in reflecting on this issue stated:

“I agree that this could catch citizens off guard and the speed of the policy implementation could create a system with less checks and balances. The other side to this is that things will finally get done. Some legislature takes years just to pass and then even longer to put into effect. Sometimes that can be a good thing and sometimes that can be a bad thing.”

Still, he agrees that such technology exists now and we could implement it and be all the better for it – Cody also states:

“I think the app should be used for policy polls and maybe even for elections. Everything should be at a local level and then on big policy changes or elections at the national level.

Okay so, you have concluded that we most likely should start off with a “Policy Poll” usage first for the app. Yes, this is wise, plus it would help steer the country towards what the citizens want on a long-term basis where we make 5-10 plans, helping the on-going planning process stay smooth. Then introduce the app as an all-inclusive voting app to ensure maximum turnout to ensure the will of the people, and greater-access. Smart.

Greater participation in voting and less apathy would makes us all better citizens feeling that we are part of something much bigger, that our vote mattered and was counted and we could see the results almost immediately. It would give disillusioned voters buy-in, whereas before they felt alienated adding to their distrust in government and our leadership
