Introduce the Withdrawable/Retractable Vote

1 Comment 6th July 2010

Forget 5 yr terms. Allow me to have a withdrawable/retractable vote.

 

if i vote for a party, and say…for example they make some deal with a party i despise. i should be able to withdraw or retract my vote.

 

if they take us to war, i should be able to withdraw or retract my vote.

 

If they destroy my liberties i should be able to withdraw or retract my vote.

 

Once enough votes have been retracted that the party no longer has a majority, then a new election is called.

 

If parties knew that your vote was not permanent then they would actually serve the people first and foremost.

 

Why does this matter?

if Government knew that they could lose power once they take advantage of it, they would no longer be able to be disconnected to the electorate.

    I second this idea. I think it would be also useful for each voter to have a proxy in parliament. If they were’nt performing then you could simply transfer or withdraw your vote. No need for another election. Lets be in a constant state of election.
