For quite a while I thought how nice it would be to be able to tell the government how to spend my money. I would like a multiple choice form showing how I want it spent.Everyone told me it would not happen in my life time. I think it will. We have to start somewhere.I am seeing transparency occuring in governement at all levels, and seeing social tools used more and more in Government.I started playing with a tool that would allow me to publish the Oregon State Budget and then dictate how important each expenditure area is to me personally.I wanted to to tell Oregon how to spend my tax money. We'll see.I can see this applied to any Federal, State, Country or any entities budget for that matter. I have Oregon's budget published, maybe I will do the Federal government next.Oregon State Budget: http://oregonbudget.laneworks.net/It is still a work in progress.
