Making Government Operations More Open

Political Promises Scoreboard

This would simply be a web site where each elected official's promises were stated and flagged showing whether they were kept, broken, in-process or inactive. A percentage based on kept divided by (kept + broken) would give us a fairly accurate estimate of their reliability when re-election time comes around.

    I had something like what shows up on the right side of this link in mind, only for all politicians -

    By the way, very few people would be able to break every single promise they make. If only by accident they'd end up keeping some of them.
