Turbocharging democracy by Votergram!

Posted by: admin - Posted on:

As in many things, there is a change in Aussie democracy. Traditionally the government ran the show and the people could like it or lump it. Today Votergrams enable the people run the show. That is to say, those who get involved do. The others still like it or lump it.

Traditionally we individual Aussies formed associations and  joined organisations, then relied on them alone to represent us in discussions with government. Some were community associations, others business associations and still others farming associations. We voters did not individually have much power at all. That suited the government.

By combining in associations we can still marshal the resources for researching facts and figures, developing solutions, dealing with government ministers and bureaucrats one on one that we could not do individually. But facts and figures are not the only, or even the major factors, influencing government today. Today a major factor in every politician’s mind is keeping their job in parliament and preferably as part of the government. Without doing that, they cannot achieve what they want to achieve.

That is what gives us voters our Voter-Power. We cannot win an argument over policy with a bureaucrat. But today we can definitely persuade the parliament.

Traditionally we supported one political party or another and we voted for it in elections regardless of how much it worked against us or neglected our needs. We became disillusioned!

Traditionally the only politician we mostly ever spoke or wrote to was our local MP and that usually produced very little.

Votergrams Turbocharged Voter-Power

Today voters have great sway over government because we have realised that Parliament controls the bureaucracy which delivers government and we, the voters, control who sits in parliament.

Today we tend more to cast our votes for the party that does what we want and against the parties that don’t.

Today we have the Votergram Turbocharge system that allows each and every Australian to tell every single member of any or every Parliament, what they want done and explain why they want it done, all in one action from their laptop or phone. A voter previously writing to their local MP developed 1 Voter-Power. When a NSW voter, for instance, writes to each of the 130 MPs in the NSW parliament by Votergram that Turbocharged message develops 130 Voter-Power (130 VP). When the same voter sends a Turbocharged Votergram to each of the 225 Federal MPs, it develops 225 Voter-Power (225 VP). When all the Members of Parliament know what is wanted and have it explained to them, then they are much more likely to do it, than if it is just explained to one local MP or even the minister.

To Turbocharge it’s power, an association can make its detailed submissions to the minister and bureaucrats, then help its members with their voters’ hats on, Turbocharge the campaign by Votergram.

Multiple voters contacting multiple MPs leverage Voter-Power further. If 100 voters in an association support the organisation’s  submissions with Votergrams to say Federal Parliament of 225 MPs the message is turbocharged to 22,500 VP. If a thousand voters do that it is Turbocharged to 225,000 VP.


Fair crack of the whip
Today it is the voters, not the bureaucrats, who can crack the whip and that gets the wheels of government turning in the right direction. Never mind the extremes of left and right. Australians mostly like to go straight down the middle and treat everyone fairly. Farmers know they don’t have to crack the whip all the time, but it helps to have it handy for when it is needed. Marginal electorates are  for voters, what a stockwhip is for a cattleman.

Join Voters now and Turbocharge your Voter-Power. It’ll do the job for you and it has been proven for 38 years without making any great fuss except in the privacy of parliament.

Speaking to politicians via the media is about as effective as speaking to your teenagers that way. Quietly, gently, privately does it in democracy by Votergram.
