In the UK we vote every 4 years to let one group of people run the country, Even then our system doesnt work. Lib Dems got 30% of the votes - but only 1/8th of the seats in parliment. Its obviously flawed - as is every system of voting. (cos bush won - didnt he?) So I wanted to ask everyones opinions: Why have different groups with different opinions battling it out to countrol a country for 4 years at a time? Is it not possible to have a voting system, through TV, Internet and touch screen points in populated areas - where you log in with your NI number (or whatever your countrys eqivilant) to vote on every single issue political issue. For example - should our country be in Iraq? Log into system, read about the issue - vote 'yes' - 'no' - 'maybe' - total up the populations thoughts. go with the majority. No goverment choice. No politians personal agendas. And the beauty of it - you only get to vote if you pay into your countrys econmics. Making everyone want to work there butts off. Surely the technology is there to put every issue in the hands of the people. Wether your left, right or in the closet - your opinion counts. And if everyone votes against you, tough luck! It could even work on localised issues, Its just that I for one, am sick of having to choose one group to run a whole country for 4 years. Listening to promises and watching them be broken is the biggest depression in my life. No one sideis right, and every issue is different. Why not inform the poeple, then let them choose? Can anyone see a flaw in the system?
