Help Us Create an App About Democracy

Dear fellow Rebelutionaries,

My name is Brandon Coonrod. I’m a high school senior, Eagle Scout, and fellow disciple of Jesus Christ.

I’d like to request your help in fixing political America.

Okay, so many of you are frustrated with the prevalence of ignorance and apathy in American politics.

My friend and I are too. So we decided to do something about it.

We’ve created an app, an app called Democracy4US.

What is Democracy4US?

Democracy4US will allow representatives and constituents to communicate in a scope never seen before in American politics.

By providing an efficient, innovative, and direct means of communication between elected representatives and their constituents, we aim to decrease voter apathy, increase political accountability, and build bipartisan cohesion and cooperation to solve some of the biggest problems facing our nation.

Unfortunately, it’s been extremely hard getting media networks to cover our campaign and people to care.

With your support, it’s still possible to make this project a success, but we can’t afford even a small amount of apathy with 11 days remaining.

If everyone in the Rebelution community backed us with $1, we would significantly exceed our campaign goal.

Still, if all you can do at this time is like our page on Facebook and share this campaign on social media, your support is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for reading/watching and (in advance) for your support in helping make America fantastic again.

Together, we can do great things.

    Wow, this looks really interesting!
    One question I would have, it seems that for this system to work effectively, you would need to have many representatives actively participating. How are you thinking of getting them involved, or have you spoken with any of them?
    I think this is a lovely idea, and I would love it if it took off!

  • Cassidy Calcutt

    I love this idea! The disconnect between politicians and constituents is a huge part of the problem with Washington right now. Is there anything in addition to giving money for me to do?

    • Brandon Coonrod

      Hi Cassidy,
      Besides donating $1, the next best thing would be inviting your friends to like our Facebook page, and sharing the project via social media. Thanks for your interest!

  • Riley Wilkins

    I agree with @BelleIngalls:disqus. And How effective is this. And at the same time would you get them to use this awesome app? Just a question to ask you yourself.

  • Wow! This is totally awesome!!! Let’s make it happen rebelutionaries!

  • Hey Brandon, nice job and initiative you and your two colleagues have taken! People having easy access to some simple facts about elected officials (and potentially people running for office) would be big. Send me an email at [email protected]!

    For those of you who’d like to like or share our Facebook page, here’s the link:

    • this app sounds cool. I’m interested in Government, Economics, and that type of stuff so I would donate if I could.

    • liked your page.

    • God bless America!

  • Sweet! (I can’t think of anything more intelligent to say, sorry;)

    I am currently in a government class, and this looks so interesting. I have come to realize just how ignorant most citizens are, as well as the sheer amount of time it takes to become educated and informed as a voter. This app would be so useful! Is is alright if I share this with my class? I think several people would like to donate.

    • Piano With Eyes-that r worlds

      I just finished studying govt, and am doing economics now. I definitely am a little more interested in politics now, though not really that much more informed.

    • Brandon Coonrod

      Go for it! That would be great.

    Go guys–this is awesome! I love politics, and I get frustrated with the number of young people who who just don’t have any interest in it This app is a cool way to make politics accessible to this generation. And I love the part about real discussion, not biased TV reports!

  • Grace

    This sounds like a fantastic idea! I just have one concern that I thought I would share. Some people connect the word democracy with the word democrat. Perhaps you should explain or tell whether or not the app can be used to view/research both democrat and republican representatives.

  • Josiah

    this is a great idea. i live in australia and am annoyed with american politics.

    • BeautifulPrincess

      Yeah…but our Australian politics are kinda going down hill too…
      We should all be praying for our leaders!

      • Josiah

        That is true
