By allowing voters to contact their politicians directly and by bringing targeted publicity to stupid political decisions, we can finally hold our politicians accountable.
Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) September 21, 2016
“It’s my hope that we can help voters in much the same way that we’ve been able to help consumers,” says Jeff Harris, president of TheSqueakyWheel Inc.
“We have the Internet’s largest single database of political contact information for politicians in the USA, Canada, Australia, England, Wales and Scotland. By allowing voters to contact their politicians directly and by bringing targeted publicity to stupid political decisions, we can finally hold our politicians accountable.”
Voters are often ignored because politicians have no idea of what they really think about a particular issue. Now, voters who really want to make an impression on a politician can do so by posting an issue page at TheVotersSay.com. When the page gets posted, the appropriate politician will automatically be alerted and the public can show its support by voting on the issue page.
According to a recent Gallup survey (http://tinyurl.com/zfe73ms), over 80% of Americans are unhappy with the performance of Congress. A similar downward trend can now be seen in most other English speaking countries.
“The truth is, politicians generally couldn’t care less about what people outside of their districts think,” says Jeff Harris. “If you’re outside of a politician’s district and can’t vote for them - don’t expect them to be kissing your baby”.
When someone votes on an issue page at TheVotersSay.com, the system automatically determines if they are in a politician’s district. Only if they are, will they be given the option to rate the politician’s performance.
“Our system automatically tabulates the votes on the various issue pages and then assigns a rating to each politician. The advantage of this unique rating system is that it helps to prevent people from voting based on name recognition only,” says Jeff Harris.
If politicians are hoping that voters will forget about an issue by the time the next election comes around, they are in for a big surprise. Just before the next election, TheVotersSay.com will automatically email reminders to people who voted on issue pages - so that when they go to the ballot box, they’ll be reminded exactly how their politicians performed on specific issues.
