What Remote Work Could Mean For Our Politics

    1. Yep, also ease the traffic in cites, helps lower cost of housing in cities, lower real estate cost of employers, save on cost of electricity, utilities in office buildings. It’s winning all around.

    2. @T. R. Campbell Republicans changed women’s minds real quick because they made it very clear they don’t care about you or your children they care about billfolds.

  1. A prime example of necessity being the mother of invention! Cheers to those who innovate! Help! Save us!

    1. @T. R. Campbell I will. But I doubt it could possibly destroy it worse than current GOP voter suppression will do

    2. @mike brigs weren’t you listening? I kind of was. If CEOs let people work remotely from wherever they want, people can move to places where homes are cheaper and still work good jobs, and as the Dem voters spread out, it will be harder for the minority party (R) to gerrymander an equal footing in government. And if they do get the upper hand at this point, the Republicans plan to end democracy and install an autocratic government. I mean, you can still call it the US, but it really won’t be anymore if we are no longer upholding the constitution and American ideals.

  2. The United States Supreme Court was streaming, because of the actual wording in the United States Constitution regarding the House and Senate in both State and the Federal Government, that can never happen without amending it.

    1. That may not be universal, but it may also apply to a larger proportion of students than we have been led to believe.

  3. The returdicans would just make laws saying that you need at least 2 years of residency to vote in the midterms and presidential elections.

  4. People have to uproot their entire homes just to fix our broken political system. What a country.

  5. It is beyond me, that one would need to go thru such lengths for ppl to vote, to freaking vote! In the country responsible for propagating democracy? Unbelievable!

    1. Tell that to your plumber, or your garbage people, or do you postal service, contractors, lawn care folks, airline staff, police (oh yeah, you want them defunded anyway… etc.. etc… etc..

  6. Great idea cause in the end the CEO’s of these companies will need to abide by the will of “we the people” and we will gladly boycott companies that do not play ball with this proposal, greatly affecting their income and stock value… Kudos!

  7. This is really inventive and out-of-the-box thinking! But I don’t understand how it would help if state republicans have given themselves the power to overturn elections.

    1. This will not come to fruition,because if they have to,they will murder the filibuster and go against the losers in the senate that do not like democracy

  8. I think it’s brilliant. Of course, details would need to be ironed out but mass migrations of blue voters into swing states would really keep Ole Mitchy up at night.

  9. This was the first thing I thought about when the pandemic hit and people started working from home. It completely changes the rural and suburban electorate.

  10. I stayed in a state that eventually became a swing state. I knew it was trending that way. I would have gladly moved from a state that was heavily democratic to a swing state. (I lived in a very conservative area – gorgeous geographically. Yes, in some ways it was oppressive, but people who weren’t conservative were very active locally – no one was resting on laurels -, which added a lot of community opportunities to appreciate diversity, and made the area more attractive to others who weren’t conservative.)

  11. Their is three things my father told me never to talk about:
    1.) Politics
    2.) Religion
    3.) Money
    That’s because you don’t know what others support, believe in, or what crisis they are going through.
