I have been a problem solver my whole life. Currently I am an IT Manager and use that skill everyday. Given all the pieces of a puzzle I can almost always solve any problem. The problems OUR COUNTRY currently faces CAN be solved. We just need to put our heads together and figure this thing out. This is my shot at a solution http://statesmen4america.org . This may or may not be the answer, but I am still working on it. I have see lots of ideas on what Congress need to fix. But very little on how we can actually implement those fixes. At least without the involvement of Congress.
I have been scanning this site and others looking for an IDEA or something that would spark and idea in my head that can be used to implement all the "Changes" that need to be made. I stumbled across this website that also is an interesting idea... http://goooh.com
Any other Ideas or sites that can help me?
Now, once we clean it out, we must have a method of keeping it clean by only getting rid of the "bad apples". I have an Idea that could do that: http://statesmen4america.org
Check it out and let me know what you think.
We need an idea that can force Congress to enact legislation that we, the VOTERS, want. Well, it just so happens I have such an idea. AND BEST OF ALL, WE DON’T NEED CONGRESS’S HELP TO IMPLEMENT IT. "Promises Make - Promises Kept", is what we need to force Congress to do. Our VOTES are the only weapon we have in this battle.
IMAGE THIS: Several weeks before the next election, you go to a website and pull up your favorite candidate. Everything he/she says is exactly the same way you feel. They align with you on all the important issue. But, you get this feeling of "deja vu". Didn't I vote for this guy last time? Did he "Keep his Promises" last time? WELL YOU ARE IN LUCK, you click on his name and a page is displayed with a list of all those "Promises Made" and the number 40 after his name. That 40 represents his score, meaning he has kept 40% of his promises from the last election. Now you are thinking, "Maybe I can do better", you go to another page, answer a few question and you are presented with a list of candidates that most closely fit your views. And next to their names are more scores: 25 - 55 - 70 - 95. You check out the candidate with a score of 95, and find that you could live with a couple small issues you disagree with. At least you can trust that his "Promises Made" will be "Promises Kept".
Now I have been working on this idea for a couple years, and created a website to explain it in more detail. What I need from you is to take a look at this website <a href="http://statesmen4america.org" target="_blank">http://statesmen4america.org
If you think this is a good idea and would like to help make it a reality, email me firstname.lastname@example.org
We need Researchers, Lawyers (Sorry about this one), Webmasters, Washington Insiders, Marketing, and Everyday Americans to help get this implemented by the 2010 elections.
I am looking for a dozen or so, open minded people (from both side of the isle) to help get this site up and going.
