I am starting to realize that most of the Arkansas GOP are politicians concerned with their own agenda or special interests rather than assisting and furthering the will of the people.

Matt,

 First-time lurker; I've enjoyed your work. Thanks for reminding me that there are insightful, rational, and educated people in my former home state who are willing to call out injustice, hypocrisy, bigotry, and poor governance. There may not be enough people like you to entice me to return there, but BHR is a good start.

Thanks again,

MJ

Hi Matt,

I want to post a comment about an issue I have observed at my job. How confidential is your website? I can't afford to lose my job. Thanks...Anonymous

Hi Matt,


Please consider starting a state initiative requiring, so far as is possible, all state and local elected officials in Arkansas to keep their constituents abreast of the issues with periodic mass texts or emails.  The elected officials should be required to poll their constituents via text or email on what their will is whenever questions of legislation arise.  The elected officials would then be required to enact the will of their constituents.  If elected officials fail to do these things, they should be subject to impeachment.


Constituents would simply be required to give their email addresses when they show up to vote.  It wouldn't cost the state a penny to enact the change.


We can have real democracy if we'll just take back the power that big money has stolen from us in politics.  You could be the catalyst for this change.


Keep up the great work with the BlueHogReport!

Jim
