Comment Re:What a concept! (Score 1) 152

I would like a system here in the U.S. — or anywhere, for that matter — to opt-out of various things my political representatives would otherwise vote for. In other words, I would like them to, by default, represent me by voting as they normally would, but if I can't trust them to vote the way I want them to on some particular bill/issue/whatever, I would like a way to override my small portion of their vote by voting for myself.

I suppose it would be similar to how stockholders can vote on corporate decisions, so long as they hold at least one share of stock. It wouldn't count for much, but at least the person can be represented exactly how they choose.
