One Response to “#110”

  1. Dear Mr. Cohen:

    I couldn’t find your email address. I thought you might be interested to know about the book I am working on. It will advocate the use of Internet voting in all US elections. Its entitled

    How to Sideline the Superrich in All US Elections with Secure Internet Voting

    The first draft of the book is finished, and online. Two chapters discuss the security issues. I criticize the scary myths, and show that it can be done with all the security of an online purchase or electronic banking. I discuss these issues in two chapters: “The Great Security Scare,” and “The Reasonable Person …”

    A third chapter is entitled “The Original Intentions of the Framers for US Presidential Elections.” Those guys detested parties. I think we Americans should get our country more in-line with their vision.

    I also discuss the outrageous costs of running for president. Obama spent about $740,000,000 in 2008. Of course, this gives an unfair advantage to the superrich who can make big contributions.

    Most importantly, I show how a system of presidential elections based on Internet voting can neutralize the power of Big Money, and make the president and vice-president directly dependent upon the people who elected them. I show how Internet voting can “Super-Democratize” our election processes.

    Consistent with Citizens United, the superrich, and everyone else, will be free to spend as much money as they want to, but with the system I propose big spending cannot influence the voter’s choice.

    No agent/pub, yet. But all my chapter drafts are online for free reading or downloading at:

    You are welcome to read any of this, and comment on it to me, or in your own writing. (BTW the two Polanyi essays on the list are not a part of the book on Internet voting.)

    A recent interview I gave is a good short statement of what Internet voting can do for US politics. Here’s the notice:

    Internet Voting Advocate Interviewed
    by Matthew Avitabile
    April 27, 2010
    Interview with political scientist Dr. William J. Kelleher, Ph.D. about the potentially fortuitous impact of Internet Voting on the US political system
    http://jumpinginpools.blogspot.com/2010/04/interview-with-dr-william-kelleher.html

    The first question is “How would Internet voting have changed the 2008 election?” The whole interview only takes a few minutes to read.
