Do-It-Yourself Government

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 »

Vital Discussion of New Governance Paradigm

The Open Government Dialogue here suggests two different takes on how technology changes public governance. The first is that Internet technology makes government more efficient; the second is that technology completely transforms the democratic governing process. This contrasts 20th century “command and control” with 21st century “open source” government and the best analogy would be Encyclopedia Britannica vs. Wikipedia. ...more »

Amend our Constitution

We, the People of the United States of America, regretfully find it necessary to exert our God given rights in order to rein in our rampant government servants. Our public servants, at all levels of government, have repeatedly exceeded the powers granted by We, the People, to a point where our various governments are now abusive of the unalienable rights given to us by our Creator. It has now come to the point where ...more »

OSTP is Funny

They have that vote up thing going on. So, here's how it works.

 

If it is popular speech, it will rise to the top like cream.

 

If it is unpopular speech, it will sink to the bottom like the disenfranchised behind it.

 

LOL

 

This is Open Government and Free Speech in the Good Ol' USA.

 

On a government site no less.

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 »

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.

John F. Kennedy. ^^^^^^

 

Every name on a list, every minute under a watchful eye, every email that is recorded, every phone call that is recorded, every dollar that is spent, every plea that is made, every effort that is taxed, none will be adequate to the task of holding down the American spirit when it is deprived of liberty for one minute too long.

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 »
