We appear to possess an issue in the U . s . States, namely Populist Political figures that lean towards socialism around the political spectrum who are prepared to promise the United States Citizens what you want – to purchase their votes along with other people’s tax dollars. Possibly for this reason our Founding Fathers generate a Republic as opposed to a pure democracy – what happens later on when voting is immediate and also the “I would like it now” crowd votes for his or her vagaries, wishes and needs in tangible-time? Me-Me-Me-Now-Now-Now – Let us talk as this question emerged at our think tank a few days ago when talking about how you can implement a smartphone instant voting application for all of us elections.
One think tanker notes “I actually do agree that individuals would certainly election free of charge stuff when they had the chance however i think we’re able to easily keep individuals votes from the application. We’re able to produce the application so the only time the application may be used is during politician produced votes. Once the government really wants to have a poll or wants America to election, installed the ballot around the application and that is all.”
Yes, people much like all existence activly works to perform the least and conserve energy, a complex system just like a human. So, humans default will be slothish, quite simply, tightfisted, which is that innate characteristic and short-on the sides thinking, insufficient economic understanding that triggers individuals to election free of charge-stuff in order to election to employ the federal government like a proxy Robin Hood (crook) to steal on their behalf on their own account, taking in one group and providing for their causes or themselves. I don’t know we are able to solve that inclination but still help with an agenda for immediate voting (instant gratification) for that masses, because it will certainly bankrupt the treasury, a minimum of it is exactly what has happened previously. It’s what went down in Venezuela, Argentina, Zimbabwe, and also the PIIGS from the EU (Portugal, Italia (banks prepared to collapse now], A holiday in greece, and The country) right?
Yes, when we stored the polls or voting just for stuff that did not have a price maybe we’re able to do this, obviously, whether it did have a price the quantity will have to be mentioned clearly, the quantity in elevated taxes mentioned, with no fudging, quite simply regardless of the CBO, OMB, GAO believed the expense, triple it, since that is what always occur in hindsight, just like strategic business plans must double the amount investment costs and double the amount time for you to Return on investment, just to stay in the correct ballpark? Any ideas with that reality check?
Indeed, whether it only agreed to be stored like a baseline polling tool, then yes, it might work, especially in the local level, keeping government honest. Also it would need to be achieved such as the “Reverse 911” calls, not people seeing a website, otherwise it might be flooded with political groups, and pure activists to aid their agenda, you will find, “ALL politics is Local” but when it will get too local lower towards the group organizing the initiative, it will likely be mistreated immediately.
If all wise phones are known as at the same time and also the people reach answer by text-election, just once per tool and after verification codes, much like individuals employed for mobile transactions – it might work right? The incoming information in the polls could be clearly visible including how a question was phrased, thus totally transparent and therefore better information to the chosen reps. How about bureaucrats, when they are permitted to make use of this type of system too? The FAA, SEC, DOJ, FCC, FBI, DOE, DOD, DHS, HHS, etc.??
More questions than solutions – this type of system is going to be our future and just how it’s implemented determines the long run strength in our Republic – stay updated – the long run is going to be exciting.
