    I would have video responses on YouTube of every district Republican on Race, Choice, Guns, and more. I would have a quilt of answers. And even if they were safe their answers would raise a ton of questions for safe Republicans in purple districts.  The question would be: this is the party you are electing.  These people go inchallenged in rural districts and never get forced to answer the question.   Well damnit I want the answers.

        In the end, this is a great collection of data.   But there is a human connection with seeing people submit on video their viewpoint.    

        I think that all of this is a large collection of data and it's what all of us do well.    I'm going to do my part and I'll start heading out into the congressional districts near me when their reps hold conferences, which actually does happen.. and I'm going to start rolling film at every damn one.

        People think of the 2012 election and they think of Aiken and the % comment.   I'm betting if we policed a lot of districts on a lot of major issues we can build a data set that shows us the reality of what people want,  how their representatives feel, and what their party really represents.

        And while statistical data gives us proof of what we know, the video of people espousing idiocy is damning.
