    I think this is important, had another thread on it a few minutes ago, but I wanted to re-present itself, and also make it a sticky here.

    There is a new website called Get Out Of Our House

    Its a fascinating way of trying to get people to run for office, who have no money, who might otherwise represent the majority view of our districts in the House of Representatives.

    Please go visit, and sign up, I urge you.

    The Mission Statement is Here

    The Process on How It Works is Here

    Please take a few minutes...read it, and then sign up.
    I think this is a fascinating new view on how to get opinions voiced.

    Hey, can hurt to try!

    Here are the YouTube videos

    Its find it quite interesting, because realistically, if ALOT of people signed up, a series of people that get funded for the general election COULD possibly win.
    Only if enough people sign up and pass the word on.

    I'm going to sign up, if you are elected, say in that off chance. Would you leave work for that?

    Assuming I was actually picked to run for office....
    I would do what I damn well could to run a campaign to get elected.

    Now if for some reason I was to win, I would leave my job of course and do my best to make this country better.

    Want to get a little more real information about it.

    Here is the process...

    1. Candidates will be randomly assigned into pools of 10 participants within their congressional district. There will be as many pools as are needed in each district.
    2. Pools will meet simultaneously at predetermined locations across the country on consecutive Saturday mornings. Sessions start at 9 AM and will last approximately 5 hours.
    3. Each pool of participants will select two candidates to advance to the next round, via the GOOOH Selection Session process outlined in the book.
    4. Advancing candidates will be randomly assigned into a new pool within their district. Steps 2 and 3 will repeat until there are only ten candidates remaining in each district.
    5. If there are 1,250 participants, there will be four rounds. The actual number will be determined based upon the number of participants in each district. There will be a maximum of eight rounds, though four to six are more likely.
    6. Before the final round, we are considering having the 4,350 finalists participate in a weekend retreat to ensure they fully understand how the final selection round will work and to ensure they are committed to representing their district if selected. Details will be determined as the time nears.
    7. The final ten candidates in each of the districts will select a single nominee to represent their district.
    8. The 435 nominees will be placed on the November ballot, in their respective districts, to compete against the Republican and Democratic politicians.
    9. The campaign for each of the candidates will be orchestrated by the system, which will provide all necessary funding.
