Change.gov – Speak your mind 2

Next week the United States will swear in the 44th President, Barack Obama. Since being elected, Mr. Obama has shown us the kind of change he promised us in the way he’s started his transition. One such example of that has been the Change.gov website where his administration has asked you, the American people, to submit your ideas or suggestions on where our priorities should lay or how certain things should be done. He has said more than once that he welcomes good ideas, no matter where they come from.

The text at the top of the page asks:

Share your ideas on any issue facing the new administration, then rate or comment on other ideas. The best rated ideas will rise to the top — and be gathered into a Citizen’s Briefing book to be delivered to President Obama after he is sworn in.

Friday is the very last day you can participate in this  amazing opportunity. As a small or medium business, what happens in the next year is going to be important to the ongoing health and strength of your business. And this is a rare opportunity to give your opinion. To help guide the new administration in the way it will help and handle the nation.

Take the time today or tomorrow to make your voice heard. Visit the Citizen’s Briefing Book and add your idea, or search for one that matches your desires for the country and vote.

  “Today we begin in earnest the work of making sure that the world we leave our children is just a little bit better than the one we inhabit today.”  -Barack Obama

      Couldn’t agree more. As my mother used to tell me; You can complain about it or you can do nothing to change it. You can’t do both.
