I think that is a good idea. It would allow people to get more involved in government.
Cedric Phillips's comment, March 30, 2012 9:01 AM
This is an excellent idea. It lets people get involved in the technology advanced age. It is also a little more convenience to vote from the comfort of your home, or on the go on your mobile device.

I think this goes against the amendment that says how we have privacy and also the one where we can't be searched. This is searching through our private lives and I don't even know who would do something like that. Makes no sense.

why they're quiting's comment, March 30, 2012 11:38 AM
I believe that teachers have lost satisfaction in their job because of the increased rate of students not wanting to learn and not applying themselves in the classroom. There's no motivation for the students in some areas and so they quit trying and it becomes very stressful for the teachers when their student's grades get pulled up and they are questioned about why so many students are failing or not attending. It makes the teachers look bad when it's actually the students faults. Teachers have every right to be displeased with their career but with such a high rate wanting to leave who will teach future generations?
