The U.S. House Republicans have a new Web comment board (pointed out by Rep. Jason Chaffetz today on Twitter).
Americaspeakingout.com is open to browse and read topics and posts. But to comment or even vote up or down on an idea, it requires registration. It will be interesting to see how comments are handled, monitored, etc. On a quick perusal of the Open Mic section this morning, I saw a post advocating freedom from religion for atheists, so there doesn’t seem to be censoring of topics that fall outside the Republican Party playbook.
Political junkies would be advised to check out the site. However, by registering, realize you are giving your congressional representative permission to e-mail you. That’s a good campaign database and fundraising tactic for congressional candidates.
