Why VOID is Essential
Vote Out Incumbents Democracy (VOID) is a voter advocacy organization. We counter politicians "vote for me" advertising with a message which comes straight from the Founding Fathers. Vote for or against incumbent politicians based on the results of that politician's term in office. If an incumbent, a politician running for reelection, has been ineffective, corrupt, or unwilling to stand for responsible government, then the voter is wise indeed to vote against the incumbent, by voting for a challenger.
America can no longer afford to keep more than 92% of the same people in office and expect a different outcome. It just hasn't worked out well. The voters must vote differently if American politics and government are to act differently. It just isn't more straight forward or logical than this.
There is no flaw at all with the Founding Fathers idea that informed voters should vote to REMOVE politicians from office if the voter's interests and nation are not served. POWER will keep itself in office. That's what political parties are all about. It takes the greater power of voters in a democratic election system to remove them.
This is what Vote Out Incumbents Democracy (VOID) is all about: motivating as many millions of registered voters as it takes to remove incompetent, corrupt, and ineffective politicians from federal office. And in so doing, put the political parties on notice: They don't control power by taking a 1.5 billion dollars of lobbyist and special interest campaign dollars; the independent thinking voters do, with their collective vote and VOID support.
VOID was founded at the exact right time in American history to force accountable and responsible government from our politicians. In recent years, the polls show that registered Independent voters now outnumber Democratic or Republican registered voters. Reaching those Independent minded voters with a strategy and goal to bind them together into a political force, is the reason for VOID's existence and growing support.
Join the VOID revolution, the time is right. The time is now.
