Campaign: Making Government Operations More Open

Open Letter to the Government

If you also agree with this give a thumbs up...... I am Janet Contreras, a concerned, home-grown American citizen. I am 53, and I have been a registered Democrat all of my adult life. Before the last Presidential election, I registered Republican because I no longer feel the Democratic Party represents my views or works to pursue issues important to me. I now no longer feel the Republican Party represents my views ...more »

The British are Coming! --- Beware the Internet Censor --- Preserve the 1st

Anonymity is a foundation for political speech. But the UK has done away with it.

 

Do not let this happen in the USA. Our government watches other governments to see what they can get away with, then follows suit. All over the globe, this happens, and people are ground down to dollars and dust.

 

If we are to have valid government, we must fight back more effectively than ever.

A Constitutuional Amendment is a terrible thing to waste. Vote up the 9th.

The 9th amendment is more than the heart of privacy in the constitution. It is the heart of individual autonomy, and adulthood.

 

It is the barrier to a constant creep of government into territory that belongs to the person. It is not properly ignored. It is not a legal joke.

 

It is real, and it means what it says.

 

Retained by the people.

Obama Ramps up Tyranny on Smokers--Gives FDA Parental Authority

Kindly do not tread on me. Actually, delete that Kindly, how about--Do not tread on me because it is the heart of our nation. I repeat, because it is required. U.S. Citizens are not children. They are adults. Congress, the Administration, and the Judicial branch are not parents. They are employees of the U.S. Citizens. No sin taxes No prohibition Yes to the 9th Amendment which our Government ignores. And apologize ...more »

The Robust Debate is here, Obama. Not in Iran. Listen to Us. Us. Here. Now.

See Drudge.

 

Obama is excited about the robust debate in Iran. Mistake.

 

He's breaking promises faster than he made them, and this exercise in open government will be a major insult if nothing genuine comes of it.

 

A few new websites with pages for comment isn't going to get it.

 

He must answer. Or he stirs the pot and walks away. I don't think it will settle well so long as the heat is on.

Ten Percent to Federal Government, State, Church. No income Tax--Only Sales Tax

That adds up to 30%. That's a pretty hefty bite. If God is happy with 10%, who is the Federal Government to demand more? So: Repeal 16th Amendment: Taxing income is bad business, permits deductive manipulation for those who can afford it, demands excessive record keeping, created the demon institution known as I.R.S., and provides avenues for cheaters. Move to Sales Tax. New Amendment: Federal Government may apply ...more »

If God is content with 10%, why should the Federal Government need more?

LOL. Repeal the 16th. Add amendment: Federal Government shall be content with a 10% sales tax, and shall apply no other taxes. Federal Government shall confine itself to its means and stay within its budget. Federal Government shall be free to petition God for extra money if they make budgeting mistakes. All, and I mean ALL excise taxes are prohibited. Obama, give back the SCHIP taxes. That was wrong, and bad. ...more »

OSTP is Funny

They have that vote up thing going on. So, here's how it works.

 

If it is popular speech, it will rise to the top like cream.

 

If it is unpopular speech, it will sink to the bottom like the disenfranchised behind it.

 

LOL

 

This is Open Government and Free Speech in the Good Ol' USA.

 

On a government site no less.

New Whitehouse Request for Input

Memo dated today, from Robynn Sturm, invites the public: Non-profits Companies Journalists Teachers Mothers Interested Citizens -----***IN THAT ORDER***----- ...to weigh in again. Doesn't say where, limits it to 3 ideas, apparently on how our government can explain to us how it controls our lives, for what purposes, how much it costs, etc., so on and so forth--the whole transparency sham.
