I find this question and contest really saddening. Why are we reinventing the wheel? The connection between citizens and government has always been Mayors - Governors - Legislatures - Representatives - Senators - President. These people in power should be making decisions based on their constituents. They should be having active and ongoing discussions with the people they represent. I see that as citizens working better with government because we would be more connected and information would flow more freely.
Was this what the Founding Fathers had in mind? If so, when did the breakdown occur?
Now this idea seems laughable because our culture and society is used to a government run a particular way, which so often is filled with corruption, false promises, and little work actually being completed. Our Civil Servants have strayed far far from their purpose...
Any thoughts on this? Did I completely miss the purpose of this contest?
