Initially launching this fall, Influential is a very early stage and lean startup focused on enabling We the People to make truly informed decisions about the issues, candidates, and officials they care about, and to influence change. We think you'll agree that our democracy is malfunctioning, and voters are generally disillusioned and apathetic. Influential intends to help restore function to our democracy by bringing consumable, fact-based truths to the people. Irrespective of your party affiliation, your position on issues, our democracy is our democracy; a democracy of the people, for the people, by the people. It's time to take our democracy back. http://www.influential.ly
