The economy is going down the tube and the government's solution is to get random uneducated people to suggest or vote for new laws? People should go back to to work instead of surfing the net.
To better use taxpayers' money, the government should close down all of its websites that function merely as talking shops, since they are a waste of server space and everyone's time. Asking people what laws they want changed is an open invitation to waffle at length about things of which we have little understanding. All that happens is that people are conned into thinking they have a stake in the decision-making process. They don't. This is a waste of everyone's time.
Wouldn't it be better if – instead of participating here – people went back to work and did something to help the economy?
