Starting a New Deal

Generally I see that a majority of Americans feel they are being lied to but this is actually a case of being stumped. If you have never been stumped they listen here, it is easy to get stumped and laughed at on the way to the bank. So here is the lesson. The Middle East Opec nations may not have over two hundred gasoline stations compared to the 5,000 or more in America and yet to think that they need more is absurb ...more »

Between Federal Agencies

Have Federal Employees Twitter/Microblog their Work/Results

I think that Federal Employees across the nation should Tweet the project that they are working on, or tasks they are completing. Once a day, twice a week, whatever. We could then create individual networks for specific Agencies, Departments, and Offices, so the American people can track the progress employees are making. The information could then be compiled at the end of the week to give a graphical representation ...more »

Survey

I guess I misunderstood the purpose of this site so I only have myself to blame for feeling more depressed than excited about my experience. Depression translates into less participation of course. It would be interesting to take a survey to find out how each participant - i.e. did this experience increase or decrease the feeling that they were really participating in a dialogue that would be read by the President. ...more »

Create a Central Portal for Government Idea Banks

If we're not going to create a National Idea Bank we should at least make the idea banks that are being maintained by various agencies like the Dept of Homeland Security, TSA, etc.. more easily accessible. (A centralized portal might actually become the de facto national idea bank after awhile.)

Do-It-Yourself Government

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 »

Government use of social media should focus more on “small groups of smart people arguing with each other” - Clay Shirky

Government use of social media should focus more on “small groups of smart people arguing with each other”, as Clay Shirky (author of Here Comes Everybody) suggests: (http://socialreporter.com/?p=502). To achieve this, consider adapting a system such as TransparentDemocracy.org to allow “small groups of smart people” to: 1. Publish proposed decisions. 2. Publish how they recommend the decision be made, and why. 3. ...more »

Collaboration between Federal, State, and Local Governments

Establish a resource/database that links the sources of information, by topic, of the federal, state, and local governments. This would allow citizens to find info and provide input by the topic that concerns them. For example, a citizen who is concerned about water runoff polluting a nearby bay and killing off the coral. They would have to learn about the various federal laws, any consent decrees, who is responsible ...more »
