Audit the Federal Reserve

Audit the Federal Reserve and make the records public. Enough said. Listen to RON PAUL, President Obama. That would help you tremendously.

Discontinue chilling gov't actions on civilian Internet activities and journalism

by restoring FISA protections that require warrants before surveilling communications between U.S. citizens. The "Cybersecurity Czar" Pres. Obama appointed resigned in protest because he claimed the NSA was refusing to pass on his recommendations for protecting the privacy of citizens using the Internet, and was creating a situation that threatened to treat all Internet communications, including communications with journalists ...more »

Where is the birth certificate?

Barack Obama should provide his long-form birth certificate and prove that he is actually eligible to serve as president. Even my children had to provide certified copies of their birth certificates in order to participate in little league baseball. College and passport records should also be made public for all presidential candidates. A reasonable person does not spend more than a million dollars in legal fees to ...more »

How Can We Take This Transparency Topic Seriously?

....when the President spends a million to keep his vault birth certificate and other personal records secret?? He is very willing to make "transparent" secrets of the previous administration, but not so willing to show a simple document that would prove his eligibility and alleviate concerns of the people he is supposed to "serve".

Minimum Waiting Time Before Spending Bills Are Voted On

I believe that there should be a minimum waiting time, say at least 48 hours, before spending bills are voted on in congress (both house and senate).

 

The last spending bill was voted on less than 12 hours before being voted on. The result? AIG Bonuses!!!!!

 

Why the rush? Afraid the bill will be fully vetted in the public forum?

I have to show proof of birth - why not Big O?

We all have to show proof of birth just to get a driver's license. Why does Obama resist showing his long form birth certificate? The clamor would still if he would reveal his long form birth certificate. Refusal indicates fear of the truth.

Birth Certificate

President Obama, Let's REALLY begin a new era in transperency. Please release your birth certificate for the People of the United States to review. My kids cannot play organized sports without showing a certified copy of their birth certificate. Disneyland even requires your birth certificate to enter their park for free on your birthday. I think the least you could do is provide this document. Why wouldn't you? ...more »
