Don't waste your vote

Why spend them on Democrat or Republican? Who has brainwashed you people that "a vote for a good person is a well-wasted vote"? Does it not occur to anyone that a hardcore conservative "soft liberal" would be the best (dare I say it?) alternative for America? Maybe someone who looks to the founding fathers rather than a person looking to become a 'new-age' "Father" or "Mother" or "Animal" (furthest latter case being... more »

Read the Full Memo from Obama

The Chief Technology Officer has hijacked the intent of Obama's Memo, and restricted it to one object: Transparency. The memo itself was not indicative of any suggestion that citizen participation be limited to this idea, and rightly so. There were three concepts: Transparency Participation Collaboration Do not be seduced into thinking that Decriminalization is off-topic. It is spot on. Do not be coerced into a... more »

Where is Participatory? Where is Collaboration?

Who decided that this website was a proper exercise of Obama's memo? It isn't. Like it or not, demanding accountability from government is a proper use of a public forum. The fault lies with NAPA, not those who demand the birth certificate. (I am not one of those) The most minimal effort in design of this website could have saved it. There was no genuine support for the idea behind Obama's memo. The discussion... more »

Chilling Open Government -- Method One

The OSTP Blog demands full names on the internet. This is a known security risk, and an improper request. The public is not sitting behind federal security guards. Politics is a volatile issue, it is simply unwise to put a genuine name out there. Yes, we could lie, but it weakens our credibility to demand open and honest government when we are compelled to begin with a lie. That is a setup. It isn't an accidental... more »

Chilling Open Government -- Method Two

Rather than permitting discussion of what was presented in stage one, limit the conversation in stage two. Obama offer three concepts. Transparency, participation, collaboration. There is no proper foundation for ignoring the dominant issues presented by the people. Do not permit them to sabotage this process. It is our government. Continue to notify the White house that we await a truly open discussion, and an... more »

This site is a farce just like the Usurper in Charge

I'm not here to discuss the eligibility issue anymore. It's become quite clear, that this site was set up by the Usurper administration to make the people actually believe that they have a voice that is heard. That's a total farce and has been proved by the disappearance of eligibility post questions. I do not hate my fellow Americans that were duped by the Saudi bought American media into voting for this despicable... more »

Voting on issues

I would like to be able to vote on issues directly, rather than having elected representatives vote for us. With internet sites we could vote for which issues are worthwhile, then have a second vote that decides how the issue should be handled.
