the people of Nevada will be the big winners in November's election.
Stateline, NV (PRWEB) May 12, 2006
The voters at Nevada Vote Direct have the solution to the problem of political corruption. And to make it work, they have placed Daniel Rosen on the ballot as a candidate for U.S. Representative in Nevada's Second Congressional District. His candidacy is unlike any other. Marking milestones in the history of both technology and politics, he is the first candidate anywhere to offer a state-of-the-art digital voting system that will enable citizens in his district to control his votes in Congress.
At Nevada Vote Direct, registered voters in Nevada's 2nd Congressional District may vote on any legislation pending in Congress. They vote only on the issues that concern them. The system provides secure electronic voting in secret ballots conducted continuously on the Internet or by telephone. But this is not just another opinion poll, for Mr. Rosen has pledged that, when elected, he will vote in Congress exactly as directed by the majority of voters in his congressional district.
When his constituents see the need for new legislation, they may use the same system to get Representative Rosen to introduce it in Congress. And, since voters cannot always be consulted in due time about last-minute amendments or emergency legislation, the system is designed to formulate comprehensive rules representing the will of the people on specific issues such as spending or immigration. Thus, Mr. Rosen's constituents will be fully empowered.
Members of Nevada Vote Direct understand that political corruption is the inevitable byproduct of our antiquated eighteenth century political machinery. But new digital technologies make it possible to upgrade that machinery so that political corruption may be cut off at the source. No lobbyist will pay for Representative Rosen's votes in Congress, knowing that his votes are owned and controlled exclusively by his constituents.
Nevada Vote Direct and Mr. Rosen's campaign are based on a fundamental trust in the sound judgment of the voters. Mr. Rosen asserts that we have been declining as a nation because we have relied exclusively on career politicians and lobbyists to make our public decisions for us. He believes that most of the disastrous decisions made by Congress have been made against the will of the majority, and for the primary benefit of a tiny minority of elite special interests. He looks forward to the correction of many problems by means of a newly empowered citizenry, when the example set by Nevada Vote Direct will be followed throughout the nation.
The response to Nevada Vote Direct and to Mr. Rosen's campaign has been overwhelmingly positive. Nevada Vote Direct collected well over twice the number of signatures required to put Mr. Rosen's name on the ballot as an independent candidate for Congress. The signers greeted the idea of citizen control with enormous enthusiasm.
Mr. Rosen plans a grass-roots campaign, using primarily the Internet and direct mail to make voters aware of Nevada Vote Direct and his unique candidacy. He sees a growing discontent with both political parties, and he says that with his election "the people of Nevada will be the big winners in November's election.”
Daniel Rosen is a musician from Lake Tahoe. He is an award-winning composer of music for film and video, a violinist, an educator, software designer, and inventor, holding two U.S. Patents in the field of music technology. He is the author of two books, one about music, and the other about the city of Los Angeles. He is the CEO of Vox Populi Systems, a software company at Heavenly Valley, Nevada.
