Since the Republican Party forte, as of late, is propaganda and slowing down legislation that effects most Americans, they are a little lost when coming up with their own agenda. In that light, they have decided to figure that out by asking Americans for ideas to eventually implement as their own by setting up an online atmosphere for citizens to use.
“I would expect the ideas that come out of this Web site and the involvement of our members will lead to ideas that we can attempt to implement today,” House Minority Leader John Boehner (Ohio) proclaimed.
While I commend their effort to use modern technology and ask the very people whom they serve what they would like to see implemented, they clearly had some shortcomings and resulted in a seemingly failed experiment. The reason one could draw this conclusion is due to the nature of enlightened posts they might find on this site:
While not ALL submissions were as simple as the aforementioned posts, but it certainly does outline their inability, not only to moderate the forum, to spend money in a useful manner (strip clubs, private jets etc). Lastly, one might wonder if the ‘crazy’ ideas are still lasting on the website, if they may be considering them for their policy agenda?
