Times this page was accessed: 325 How many votes on this issue: 276 Is the proposal below worth reading and voting on?: 85% say Yes.(but these are not real counters, and the real figures are unknown.
(Since you can't really vote yet [but you can send email], here are three questions related to this voting system, possible elaborations, practical only when using computers. Of course, if you were actually voting, you could only vote on one issue per page.)
1. Should there be a set of maybe 10 test questions relating to the text of the question up for vote, to indicate if voter actually read and understood the text? One's voting power would then be proportional to the number of right answers, plus one, or maybe proportional to the square root of that number. Going back and checking the text would be okay.
2. In this system, one can vote either privately or publically. I feel our culture of privacy and secrecy tends to aid hypocrites and criminals most. Should those who vote publically receive more voting power than those who vote privately, because they are taking the risk of publically standing up for their values?
3. Should voters, especially public voters, have the option of answering other questions about themselves, so we can get some idea of how different kinds of people voted? Such information could be challenged by those who know them, but it could never be verified.
