Even though citizens can read bills online, email their legislators and follow politicians on Twitter, many opt out of the political process.

I don’t know why people see this as a radical stance. I don’t think it is. The inauguration is over. From the incoming president-elect and the outgoing president, I heard a similar message, and the message is the American people need to get involved in their governance. They need to get involved in the decision-making that affects their lives. They need to get involved in policy.
I asked you, “When you look at this, is that a radical stance?” (more…)

Trade Association members share the cost of hiring attorneys, lobbyists and public policy folks too. We participate in discount group buying through buyer’s clubs, Costco etc. The point is when a service is expensive, it is outside the reach of an individual.
That’s why large corporations have the resources to hire lobbying firms by themselves, but small businesses and individuals do not. (more…)
I want to ask you, what if it was fun? What if we could make politics fun again?
What if we could make it where it was community focused? What if we could make it where it wasn’t so divisive? What if it was something that you really could get together with your friends, have a good time, and make a difference?
There is training and certification for lobbyists, lots of it, but there’s no real training for individual citizens, so what does this mean?
It means that people who already know how to access the government, politicians and be influential are able to get more and better training on an ongoing basis. For the average person who wants to change a law or influence a public official or post comments to a regulatory agency, it’s very, very difficult. (more…)

We are at a turning point in our politics; everyone needs to get involved, come together around issues, build coalitions, fund their initiatives, and intelligently pursue their agenda.
Over the last 50 years we have relied more and more upon computers to improve our lives, accelerate our learning, and make life generally easier.
The technology, the computers, the microprocessors, all of this has come into physical objects that have vast amounts of data applied to them and we are looking to improve performance. We see this in air travel, now in autonomous vehicles, in cars. We see it with computer aided design, computer assisted learning, and many other areas. (more…)
