Proof of Citizenship

How appropriate...a website with the Seal of the Executive Office of the President of the United States looking for suggestions on how to make the government more trasparent. Let's start with the basics...the Constitution of the United States. Mr. Obama needs to provide his long form birth certificate in order to demonstrate his elegibility to serve the office for which he was elected. Leadership starts at the top. Until... more »

Transparency please - produce original, long form BIRTH CERTIFICATE.

We are making a simple request. This is not unreasonable, considering that our constitution specifies what the requirements for POTUS are. We - the people who constitute the nation that he is supposed to be serving - are entitled to full disclosure on this issue! Those who are voting against this - why? If he's truly a citizen, he has no reason to not comply with this request. It would only shut up those who are... more »

Between Federal Agencies

Suicide Prevention in All Federal Departments

Department of Defense components have created 'suicide prevention' programs and trained their military and civilian personnel to be alert and responsive to the needs of their organizations and circumstances. The DoD programs lend themselves to being adapted throughout all Federal Departments and Agencies. I suggest a top down directive to all federal departments that will encourage suicide prevention training for federal... more »

Start a billboard campaign to find the Dr. that delivered Obama.

Somebody start collecting money to buy advertising in Hawaii to ask for leads as to whom the Dr. is that delivered Obama. We need a movement dedicated to finding and interviewing this most auspicious obstetrician. What an honor to be the man who delivered B.H.O.! Wouldn't we be able to contact ALL of the living obstetricians in Hawaii who were practicing at the time of his arrival upon the earth? How many could... more »

Records Management

PROVE YOUR NATURAL-BORN CITIZENSHIP, COMRADE OBAMA!

You need to cease and desist all of your legal obstructionism and continued obfuscation with respect to your birth and academic records! The ridiculous facsimile of your birth certificate posted online that that miserable idiot Robert Gibbs refers to is ludicrous on its face! PROVE AND SHOW THE LONG-FORM DOCUMENT THAT CONTAINS THE NAME OF THE HOSPITAL WHERE YOU WERE BORN AND THE NAME OF THE ATTENDING PHYSICIAN! Where... more »

Show us your live birth certificate...

I am sick and tired of being ripped off by the crooks in Washington. The system is now a joke. We have a president who is not even eligible to be the president of the United States being completely opaque with his own records, yet he is offering transparency. A major example of this new "transparency" is the stimulus bill which wasn't even finished the night before it was handed out. It was over 1000 pages long and... more »

Voting eligibility

Based on the fiasco of Obama's election by the uneducated masses, I highly recommend that the US demand that one of the qualifications for elegibility to vote is passing an IQ test. If people fail to pass it, they can't vote. If people dont understand policies and issues, then they shouldn't be allowed to vote. It was obvious that hordes of voters had no clue as to Obama's qualifications, nor his policies, but voted merely... more »

New Strategies and Techniques

Broaden targeted issue groups and encourage dialog

Require broader input on federal legislation through a non-partisan "stakeholder bank" that is strictly utilized for input on federal legislation and rulemanking. This list cannot be shared outside of this specific purpose. Used sparingly and strategically, a well-tended, non-partisan electronic list of industry or interest-related contacts can provide thoughtful input to complicated, multi-criteria decisions. Using... more »

Legal & Policy Challenges

Moral Government and Priorities

I don't have any answers--but I think this idea merits some thought and discussion. I believe that our leaders and decision makers need to use morality as a compass in their leadership. I understand the realities of the world--politics, money, international diplomacy, etc.. However, I believe that our leaders need to be guided by their most basic sense of humanity and right and wrong, when addressing our many social... more »

Making Government Operations More Open

Make the Post Office a government agency the way it used to be.

The post office delivers political mail for free. This makes it more difficult for them to compete effectively. UPS and Fed Ex own their own air freight system. Legislation, originated by private companies, doesn't allow the post office to have their own air freight. They are required to hire one of the other companies. Its a miracle that the post office is able to charge as little as it does considering how much political... more »

A change in the "Open Government Dialogue"

Provide a record of how many positive votes and how many negative votes each idea gets. Otherwise an idea that gets a thousand positives and a thousand negatives may be ignored or seen as zero support when it really received quite a bit of support.

 

If you won the vote of only half the people while the other half hated your guts you might still win the election. Lots of Presidents don't do that well.

Release who killed JFK

If this governmnet wants to be transparent tell us who killed John F Kennedy. Why was this information buried, and why has it been buried again?

 

How can we trust a government who knows who killed a sitting President but won't tell us?

 

It was supposed to be released in 50 years but it's pushed back another 25 to 50 years.

 

So let's be honest to the people who pay your salary for once!

New Strategies and Techniques

Create a two way Rail system that is owned by the United States

The railroad should be an extension of the interstate highway system that allows all companies and individuals equal access. If you believe in free trade you probably believe in free interstate commerce. Allowing a single company to take precedence over another because they own the road interferes in interstate commerce. By building a rail system that isn't owned by any one company we remove a companies right to place... more »
