Let's Make a Political Party out of Software


Our political system is broken.

How do we fix it? We don't.

We hack it.

We build a political party that works like a network.

How? We turn the party into an app.  Into software.

My collaborator, the successful tech entrepreneur Jordan Greenhall, has a proposal for this.

His proposal? Build an app that allows members of the party to directly control the actions of the representatives they send to Washington. In his proposal, everything that the representative does in Washington, from votes to vetoes should be debated and voted on by the party members within the party app.
