Making Government Operations More Open

Make holding public office entail a sacrifice of certain rights.

In shaping our nation, public office holders are given the power and privilege that that task requires. However, this power can be abused. The risk should be minimized by making it a requirement of such offices that the office holders voluntarily sacrifice certain rights. The obvious example would be the right to privacy: if someone is given the power to create laws, to implement policy, that person should not be able to hide how those laws affect his or her personal situation.
