It's a cinch we won't have anticipated all the questions our esteemed visitors might have. So please bear with us!
If this can really work, how come it hasn't been done before?
We can only guess that, because the Internet is what makes this possible, it simply took this long for the potential to be recognized.
This involves striking a bargain where my vote is concerned. Isn't that a bit like selling it -- and therefore immoral or illegal?
A:This program isn't anything like that. Nobody is giving you anything in order to get you to vote any particular way. We don't ask that you vote Libertarian, or Reform, or Green, or Constitution, or Socialist. We just ask that you vote your conscience instead of your fear.
I love this idea! How can I be involved?
Here are a couple of ways:
- First, spread the word! We do no paid advertising, and so far we've had the resources to do very little PR. Your word-of-mouth advertising is worth a lot to this "honesty in voting" movement. Send email announcements to the known Free World. For the most popular email software, clicking here will open up a message that you can send to anyone (or everyone!) in your address book.
- Second, you can simply donate some of your hard-earned dollars to support our effort. Now you can easily make donations online by credit card with PayPal (Sorry -- donations to VoteBuddy are not tax-deductible.) Just click this button if you're already a PayPal member.
