THE TECHNODEMOCRAT MANIFESTO

 

We believe the people have a right to political self-realization. Since we’re paying for it, and that we finally have the technology for it, we should be able to have a say in all things related to our governments.

We categorically refuse to recognize representative democracies as being real democracies, and we are going to call out politicians and the media who fail to recognize that difference.

Deciding who’s going to be deciding things for us, is not the same as being able to decide things ourselves.

The politician’s power to create and decide the law needs to be taken away, and their role needs to be downgraded to the equivalent of debate moderators.

NATNOTE: The candidate in this comic strip was rendered as genderqueer in order to be more reflective of the electorate.

Once again there was two winning entries, and I have to say that I really struggled to find a resolution that included them both, but I think I came up with a good compromise.

 

Also, a huge thank you to everyone who voted, talked about it, or just came to check it out. ^_^

NATNOTE: This morning’s sunrise was a half-sunrise, so [ YOU ]’re in the clear. It’s only when it’s a full-sunrise that [ YOU ] turn  into a were-rooster.

The UPDATED CHRONICLES of [ YOU ]

**** UPDATED FEBRUARY 28th ****

the CHRONICLES of [ YOU ] one

Voting is now over! I’d like to thank everyone who participated. I’m really psyched about the level of participation. Take that, stereotype of  modern low voter turnout!! But seriously, big thanks to everyone who voted, and as well to the ones that just came to check it out. Huge thanks to the people that were so into it, they dropped their own write-in ideas for the next panel, that’s pretty awesome!

-Speaking of which, we had 5 write-ins, here they are in no particular order:

-“FAP FAP FAP”

*** ( a sound effect reference I think )

-“Hurl the alarm across the room and clog my ears with paper.”

*** ( Totally! ^_^ )

-“Choice#3 if I lived in Russia”

*** ( A clever reference to the meteorite that fell in Russia that was on the news )

-“I get attacked by two cute cats no choice to get up.”

*** ( Meow! ) ^_^

-“Crush the alarm because I have radioactive blood.”

*** ( It sounds like 1960’s Spider-Man is one of my readers. Spectacular! )

-Anyways, I love that people put in write-ins. Write-ins will play a bigger role next time, I can promise you that. It was an interesting turn-out. The polls were opened for 16 days, at for the first 14-15 days it looked like “I would turn off the alarm, and go back to sleep” was gonna be the easy winner. So much so, I made a thumbnail sketch for it:

But at some point ( I should have paid more attention every day ^_^ ), there was a shift in the polls, and an unexpected winner emerged. Now here are the results in pie-chart format :

[ pie chart ]

… or for those of us who don’t like opening up diagrams: The winner is “It’s 5 AM and it’s a full sunrise, so once again I turn into a were-rooster.”

Woo-hoo!!!!  ^_^

-So without further ado, here is the newly duly elected new panel in context :

the  ELECTED CHRONICLES of [ YOU ]

AAaaaaHHH!!! Isn’t democracy wonderful! :)  Well I hope YOU had as much fun participating in this project as I did. I gotta say, I couldn’t have done it without YOU. I think YOU’ve worked very hard, so I’m gonna put YOU on vacation for the next 3 weeks, YOU’ve earned it.  But next March 20th will be published the next chapter of the Adventures of YOU, so I hope YOU show up again, and show the world what only YOU can do!! ^_^
