DCCC launches interactive site to vote on Republican ideas

Washington (CNN) – Just two days after the House Republicans launched AmericaSpeakingOut.com, an interactive site geared toward collecting ideas for the GOP, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee launched a site that allows their supporters to vote for the worst GOP ideas.

GOPContractWithAmerica.com is a campaign website that links to a new Facebook application that allows supporters to fill out a poll and share it with their Facebook friends. Republicans have said their new site is not campaign oriented.

"The DCCC launched this new initiative to enable our four million plus grassroots supporters to vote for the worst GOP priorities that benefited big corporate special interests under George W. Bush," DCCC Spokesman Ryan Rudominer told CNN in an e-mail. "The DCCC will continue on the cutting edge in allowing our grassroots supporters' voices to be heard."

The custom designed Facebook application, which went live Thursday morning, will be used throughout the election cycle.

    Here's a list of items the GOP should add to their pledge.

    1. I will work for the American people instead of the party. The good of the American is more important than keeping with the party line.
    2. I will no longer lie about what is in a bill.
    3. I will not twist the truth or tell half truths just to score points.
    4. I will work across party lines for the best bill possible instead of just voting NO.

    Can anyone think of even one member of the GOP who would sign this pledge if it was included in their so Contract with America? I didn't think so. Working for the country instead of the party isn't in the GOP's vocabulary .

    Vote NO in NOvember to the party of NO.

    To "one voice": are you OK? Your several posts all sound enraged and locked in some time warp when Bush was President. Why don't you try channeling that rage in a new direction, say the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave? I mean, Obama's now been in office 18 months, and according to him, is in control of what's happening, so living in the now with him ought to at least be therapeutic for you. I mean, who goes on and on about an ex-spouse 18 months after the divorce? Not productive ... at all.

    The Republican Party of "NO" is the party of "one mind, one thought, one person thinking". They get their marching papers each and every morning from big money/big business and go out through out the day repeating the talking points. When you are brainwashed for so many years, as is McConnell and Boehner it .... becomes hard to think for yourself.

    Attacking their own citizens because we want to be involved with how are tax dollars are being spent. This administration and the dnc reminds me of being back in middle school. In all my years I have never seen such a corrupt, immature, inexperienced bunch run our country, it's so sad and so scary....
