If you are unaware, China is developing a system in which all people will have a “social credit score” that is based upon compliance with laws and social codes of conduct. The more loyal and obedient you are, the more social credit you have. The less obedient you are, the lower your score. A low score can get you banned from public transportation, housing in nicer buildings, even cost you a job, or determine which schools your children attend.
Here is a video from CBS about how the system will work.
This is a video shot from inside a Chinese train reminding passengers about the program.
So I go online today and see this:
If someone in your contact list has a perfect voting record, the OutVote app puts a smiley face with red hearts for eyes next to their name. Wayward voters who missed elections get a sad-faced emoji dripping a tear. https://t.co/bQ6Obp1E2f

OutVote, the company that developed the app, is partnered with the Democrats, Move On, and Swing Left.
So here we have a social media app that will tell you if your friends voted.
It’s partnered with only Left leaning groups and the DNC.
So how long until the app puts smiley faces next to friends who vote Democrat and frowney faces next to those who vote Republican?
Welcome to voting based Chinese social credit system designed to shame anyone who doesn’t vote blue.
Just wait until this comes standard on any Apple or Google device as one of those OEM apps you can’t delete.
Boy that didn’t take long.

If you dislike what’s going on in the country and you aren’t planning on voting please delete your account. No offense.

Here is a sitting politician using social media to shame non voters, more specifically people who are inclined to vote Democrat but don’t.
That was replied to with this lovely tweet:
If you dislike what’s going on in the country and you aren’t planning on voting please delete yourself from life. You’re wasting space and resources better used by others.

That one is the end goal. Have a social media app the broadcasts that you voted – and potentially who you voted for – so everyone knows if you didn’t vote Democrat they can shame you, scream in your face, and beat you up (or worse).
It really didn’t take them that long to reveal themselves, didn’t it?
