Denver, CO, United States, 2008/01/22 - MyCampaignPlatform.com launches a social networking site designed to stimulate political thought. It encourages users to think through the issues facing the next president and see if they could be elected the 2008 president of the United States.
Just in time for Super Tuesday, MyCampaignPlatform.com, a new social networking site designed to stimulate political thought and elections, announces its official launch. While voters head to the polls for their state’s primary or caucus, they can also go online to see if they could be elected president.
MyCampaignPlatform.com connects people together and gives users the ability to create a campaign platform and run for a mock presidential election. The site is not designed as a venue for political arguments. Instead, MyCampaignPlatform.com allows people to share their views on the major issues facing the United States today, which are sure to determine the next president of the United States.
MyCampaignPlatform.com is designed to be a non-affiliated site. Too often, people just vote down Democrat or Republican Party lines. MyCampaignPlatform.com does not ask for party affiliation. Instead, voting is based on candidates’ stand on the issues. Participants do not even have to take a stand on every issue. They may have a campaign platform revolving around just one or a few issues. The site also offers users the ability to include a campaign video and photo just like real elections.
According to Kim Murdock, Vice President of MyCampaignPlatform.com, “We came up with the idea because we constantly hear people criticize political candidates. But what would they do if they ran for president? Could they win an election? By designing the site, we’re giving people the opportunity to see if they could win. The site allows users to share their views. We’re also giving people a chance to think critically and learn.”
Use of the site is free. All that is required to participate, both to vote and to create a campaign platform, is a valid email address. To get started, go to MyCampaignPlatform.com to register.
MyCampaignPlatform.com encourages people to think critically on the major issues facing the United States today, share their views and run for a mock 2008 election. Headquartered in Denver, Colorado, MyCampaignPlatform.com is privately held.
