Dickson Representatives

100% Guaranteed Representation

PLEDGE

I, Thor Prohaska, as a Dickson Representative pledge I WILL represent the Sovereign Will of the voters to the elected member for Dickson on all polices that are of importance to the voters of Dickson.

"The whole system of Parliament, and the SOLE reason for its existence, is to make laws for the people, with the clear Implication that those laws will reflect the WILL of the people on the subject matter of those laws" - Arthur A. Chresby,
Federal Member for Griffith (QLD) 1958 - 1961 & Research Analyst in Constitutional Law.

For a democracy to function there must be an effective way for the WILL of the people to be communicated to their elected representative so they can carry that WILL to the floor of parliament.

The current method of doing this is broken. Political parties do NOT represent the WILL of the voters as they are only a tiny minority of the voters and even that tiny minority usually have little say as policy formation is controlled largely by the executive of the party and the donors and other powerful external players.

We the voters need a better way to determine what the majority WILL is on each and every policy. To do this I say that we the voters need to have a network of representation connecting all the voters in the electorate together.

To be truly democratic this network needs to be formed and controlled by the voters in each electorate. It is not up to one individual or group to control this network and its policy position outcomes.

So to that end I am reaching out to all interested voters in the electorate of Dickson to come together to form and operate this network to deliver to our elected representative the WILL of the voters of Dickson with the expectation that they will vote according to that WILL in parliament.

I have a plan to make this happen by:

  • Establishing local community representation networks across the whole electorate.
  • Identifying and supporting local community and policy representatives who will represent their local networks.
  • Holding Policy Party Nights where voters & representatives in the local community can meet in a structured fun social setting to debate policies important to them and to reach a local community consensus on those policies.
  • Using the web application VoteWrap for online collaboration to build an electorate wide consensus on all the policies started at the local community levels.

I look forward to joining with all the voters in Dickson who believe that Independent Representation without the interference of political parties is the best form of democracy. Contact me here.
