    Blackboxes to be mandatory in US cars?

    Saw this article on Fox News. Pretty interesting read.

    I know some cars already have them. But the questions is how far will the DOT go to "keep" motorist safe. I can see both sides arguements. I'm fine with them using them to see what happened before a crash, but not whenever the authorities feel like it.

    It's insane, how banks and insurance companies get to make all the decisions I have no idea.

    Why not simply actually give the people a direct vote? Well, one reason is because they would lose all control. Can'y government evolve with technology? We are using a system from hundreds of years ago that yes, although better than all those that came before it, may need an update.

    Why can't I vote directly in house of representatives? I don't want someone to represent me. Show me the bill on the floor in a window and let me click thumbs up or down, simple. Don't tell me it can't be done, it can be.
