|[V]ote-auction.com is devoted to combining the American principles of democracy and capitalism by bringing the big money of campaigns directly to the voting public. We provide a forum for campaign contributors and voters to come together for free-market exchange.|
|Until recently, the Election Industry was controlled by an exclusive group of political consultants. These consultants spend the campaign contributors' money on advertising while taking a 10-15% cut for themselves. The political consultants are paid based on their ability to "deliver" voters to the candidates. This effectively treats the voters as a product to be sold to the candidates (and/or their campaign contributors.) This is similar to the way television (and other media outlets) operate. In television, the end product is the viewer whose attention is sold to television's customer, the advertiser.|
|The [V]ote-auction.com Approach|
|[V]ote-auction.com has created a new paradigm in the election industry. Now the voters can take control of their voting capital and campaign investors will see a greater return on their investment. Control your vote - control your democracy!|
|The worldwide Approach|
|[V]ote-auction.com is planning on going worldwide soon. We are already
talking to diverse democratic countries in South America, Africa and Asia.
Nevertheless, the E.U. [European Union] will be our next market of service.
With our worldwide services voters will be able to control their vote worldwide, and thusly able to control democracies worldwide directly!
|The way the Markets work|
The winning bidder for each state will be able to choose who the group will vote for en masse. The free market will determine the value of the votes in each state. Votes in heavily populated states may be more valuable than votes in less populous states; however, if there is a large number of voteauction voters in a small state, the voteauction voters could help swing that state and thus the state's electoral votes. The value of a vote in a particular state could change on a daily basis. Votes have been purchased in the past (in fact the United States has a long history of vote buying going back to George Washington) but it has never taken this form.
The starting bid for each state is $100, with a minimum bid increase of $50. [V]ote-auction.com will not receive any money from the auction. The winning bidder will have to contact the [V]ote-auction.com voters in order to provide payment and for the voters to provide verification.
Individuals, corporations and organizations must first register in order to bid on one of the voting blocks. Spending money to influence voters is protected by the free speech clause of the First Amendment of the U.S. constitution. A recent U.S. Supreme Court decision (Buckley v. Valeo) has equated freedom of spending money with the freedom of speech. Freedom of spending and freedom of speech are central components of our capitalist democracy. It is however considered problematic by very local jurisdictions of a few small states of the U.S. if one pays money directly to voters [it is ok to pay campaigners directly]. We understand this twist of modern day society, and have therefore found new ways on how to solve this situation smoothly.
