The Real ME: A Stock Photography Resource for the Media
We’ve all seen them in the news stories about ME/CFS: the guy in a suit at the office, yawning; the beautiful woman sitting at her desk with her immaculate make-up and elegantly coiffed hair, hand to her head and looking slightly pained.

Can we collectively use our vote?

    Hi,
    Maybe it's the only thing we can do to help ourselvs. As Lipkin said politicians don't listen to scientists, they listen to people who might vote for them.
    So, can we create a website called something like "promisemyvote.com" in which people are able to record the fact that they would vote for a party if the party does something specific. In our case, that would be "allocate Xmillion $ to MECFS research" or whatever.
    If we think about how close the last US election was, surely the promise of 1million votes from PWC's would be enough to get them seriously thinking.

    Do you think this could work?

    I think it's more promising to join the campaigns to get money out of politics. Then people like us would have a better chance of being heard instead of being lost under the banks and other high-money interest groups.
