Campaign: Making Government Operations More Open

Open the courts.. let citizens order their own court transcripts...

Right now you need lawyers and transcription services who are charging very high fees for these services. You should not need a lawyer to get the information that should be open to the public just as the physical courtrooms are.

Statute of Limitations on Federal Laws

Laws are written and considered and passed by a relatively small group of people (only 51%+) in Congress. Those lawmakers are only put in power by a majority vote (and remember, not all people vote) and they, and the issues / people they represent, only stay in the Congress for a limited period of time. I think we can all agree that they are not perfect and their ideas are often based on the politics of the moment. ...more »
