Robert Steele on Government Reform
A: This is an important question. The short answer is neither under the present government that is dishonest to the bone and ignorant as well. Were the government honest, it would have an Open Source Agency and be a proponent for holistic analytics, true cost economics, and open source everything engineering.
Q: And what should be done?
A: We should not be allowing industries to suck up vast quantities of water for evil ends including fracking and the sale of poisonous beverages. We should not be allowing the IT industry to export all of our jobs.
A: My concept for an honest government can be found at We the People Reform Coalition. An honest government would combine a coalition cabinet with an end of the two-party tyranny in Congress, would achieve a balanced budget and tax reform, full employment, and added recently, a basic income for all. It would eliminate the 50% waste characteristic of all tax-payer subsidized endeavors, and most importantly, it would end the imperial presidency, publish all legislation online in advance, and seek national ballot consensus on all issues. What an individual candidate believes on any issue is relevant to their civil discussions with others, it should not have that great an impact on what the Nation decides once the power is back in the hands of the public.
A: The US Government is no longer trusted by the rest of the world or its own citizens. The US Government lacks intelligence with integrity. Until we achieve electoral reform and can elect an honest government, we must consider the US Government a threat to public prosperity and peace, a threat to be contained to the fullest extent possible.
A: Strongly Support. In fact, We the People Reform Coalition is the ONLY proponent for comprehensive electoral reform, with an Election Integrity Pledge, a Statement of Demand to be read nationally in January 2012, and a two-page outline of an Electoral Reform Act of 2012 that will not only eradicate corporate contributions in all respects, but open ballot access, eradicate digital vote manipulation, and do the many other things that Ralph Nader, Christina Tobin, Jim Turner, Theresa Amato, and our many crowd-sourced contributors have been championing. We need to do it all--allowing ballot access restrictions to remain makes campaign finance reform meaningless. All national parties (this includes Green, Libertarian, and Reform) should be on all state ballots when they have a candidate for national office. This is part of our push for legislation in February-March 2012.
