Get Out of Our House GOOOH - thoughts?

Been seeing more and more of this idea and signed up a while back.
http://goooh.com/


Not the best commercial for GOOOH, but I think its a good idea in general.

The short version is members pledge $100 to fund campaigns of GOOOH candidates. Potential candidates answer a bunch of questions on how they will vote in the house on bills related to their stances. If they deviate from their original opinion or are unable to convince their constituents of why they changed their minds they are supposedly held to a contract and must resign their seat.

The money raised will fund various candidates whom win the most votes within a GOOOH election.

Idea is non-partisan and is designed in such a way to represent constituents and for people to more easily hold them accountable and to understand a candidates positions more transparency.

All kinds of fail. There's nothing innovative or interesting in the approach and its biases are clear as day.

I mean any group that considered excluding lawyers from running ... that's like excluding people trained in fixing cars from being chosen as your mechanic. Lawyers are trained in the law, why the hell should they be excluded? Horse**** bias.

I have to disagree with the notion that today's politician's are not what the founding fathers envisioned. I actually think they are exactly who they invisioned which is why our system was set up to be so inefficient

They are the reason the laws are so screwed, lol. If you or I were to make the laws, there would be stark differences.

Yea, that contract wouldn't be binding... that isn't how contracts work. A great symbolic gesture, but completely hollow. This sounds like the Tea Party rebranded itself.
