@aaronoleary Hi Aaron! The original idea was a button that would support the issue at the bottom of an article that got you riled up. 16 months later of iteration, here we are. Inspiration came from the political voltage that is unavoidable in our country right now. Methods of political engagement (marching, calling congressmen, petitions, social media) seem impotent, and aren't making people feel like they can make a difference. ChangeRoots is intended to capture that voltage to align incentives with what the people want and combat big money influences by simplifying fundraising. Plus it's actually fun. I'm the UX guy with no real political background, and I've been loving it.

Would like to see a few more posts per day but know there is a tough balance between too many and too few

Pros:

Easy to stay tuned in to politics and contribute at a manageable level

Cons:

Only a few posts a day
