4. How about this
to keep from punishing our "friendly" employers and coworkers and business owners.

A website:

Log in anonymously and add the following:

1. your annual income and position, by State

Let's take approximately the same tax value from that derivation and figure out how much we're paying in state and federal taxes today.

Let's figure out how much we earn per day.
Let's figure out how many of us are in committed relationships and will continue to be.
Let's figure out how many children we collectively support.

Let's figure out how much we spend per week on groceries.
Let's figure out how much we spend per year on mortgages, car loans, student loans and credit cards
Let's figure out how much we spend per day from those stats.

Let's have some anonymous numbers too to scare our chickenshit politicos:

1. Do you plan to vote?
2. Are you typically Dem / Rep / Other?
3. If your party puts forth a candidate who is against gay marriage will you still vote?
4. Do you serve in the military?
5. Do you plan on serving in the military?
6. Do you currently work in any form of law enforcement or government administration?

and so on.

It could be done with the right sampling methodology.

Anyone want to take a crack at it?
