Voting through social media !

This idea is geared towards people between the age 18 and 28 (currently voting less than 9% of the time) so that their voices are heard and more accurately represented in the legislative process. Non-presidential voting issues would be presented in a persons newsfeed, similar to a sponsored add on Facebook, but the voting box would have a special "Government Sponsored" tag letting users know that this was ...more »

TAX THE ROBOTS

Every time a robot comes online another job is lost. But remember-- jobs are a means to an end not an end in themselves. As tech progresses fewer people will be needed to complete tasks -- to "do jobs." Already it has been predicted that the job of a radiologist will be replaced by computers. The computers can do it better. There are a million Americans employed now as drivers. Self driving cars will eliminate those 1,000,000 ...more »

Break up our electoral college votes by county or popular vote

In every election I've seen, politicians only come to California with their hand out and give us nothing in return. In the meantime, "battle ground" states are flooded with billions of dollars to sway their votes because of the competitive split of voters . Desperate politicians pay attention to those states and focus all their promises and money on them. Democrats take California for granted and Republicans write off ...more »

Make all votes count through fair Electoral College reform

California has the largest number of Electoral College votes in the United States with 55. Like all but two states (Maine & Nebraska), CA awards its EC votes on a winner-take-all basis, nullifying the votes of MILLIONS of Californians every presidential election (exact same outcome as the popular vote). Since CA is one of the few states that has an independent commission to draw congressional districts, now is the time ...more »

Better representation along Sierra-Nevada mountains

The (now defunct) "Six Californias" idea was very interesting. I wondered who drew the lines, why they were drawn there, and especially disturbing: who named the resulting states. I liked the idea otherwise, and feel a better first step is to find commonality amongst a region within California that has a distinct difference to rally behind. With 1-in-8 Americans calling California home (38 million people), no policy, ...more »

End Gerrymandering ! Redistrict based on mathematical algorithm.

Gerrymandering is a very big problem. And the citizen's redistricting commission helped, but did not make it go away. Whenever people are involved in the process there will be compromises, there will be "Horse Trading", there will be millions of dollars, and years of lost time. What if I told you that there is a way to end gerrymandering, save millions of dollars, and get the process done in days instead of years. ...more »

Open Voter Id for California citizens

When a local city agency wants to collect feedback from their citizens, they have a couple choices. They can use a completely open survey tool, which allows trolls from all over the world to generously participate. Or they can try to get citizens to verify their identity and location. A small city has few resources to implement this verification. And one citizen may not trust many separate government departments to ...more »

RepTalk

When we vote for laws, we have no idea who is representing us. We need an easier way to connect with our representatives and avoid burocratic obstacles. I propose a platform for learning about our reps and video chatting directly with these officials.
