meritmoot

meritmoot is an ongoing project dedicated to providing a platform for policy discussion on the internet. The platform provides an interface to access and comment on governmental data such as bills, votes and roll calls for the US house and senate.

To summarize meritmoot provides a platform for:

· local state based political discussion and information

· national political discussion and information

· bill and roll call information

· social and public discussion between users

· allows for decentralized organization of political groups.

The website is currently down as we are pivoting away from being a discourse plugin. This is due to the wish to include more advanced features and views. Discourse, while an amazing platform, does not provide the flexibility needed for my vision of meritmoot V2.

If you are interested, I am experimenting with new ways of implementation with my current side project toonrail.

I wouldn't suggest using this version as I am creating a new one
