USA National Referendum – Comment Sections for Vote Threads

Both to prevent fraud and to promote discussion, each constituent would be allowed one comment per vote and one vote per issue. Choosing words wisely and reading other comments before posting would therefore be essential. These comments would be attributed to the citizens first name and Congressional District only. Up and Down votes on comments would automatically cause a promotion of comments to the state thread and national thread, and all Congresspeople would have access to read any and all comments as would all citizens.

Congresspersons would be able to post their own thinking on the issue in a comment box directly below issues for their constitutents to read and react. Likewise, Congresspersons would be able to send messages directly to people who commented on issues asking for clarification and data.
