Direct Allocation Governance

Grass roots governance is a Jeffersonian ideal.  Voting allows grass roots input to leadership choice.  Direct factional allocation governance allows grass roots governance of federal spending.

Every citizen receives an equal amount of “allocation funds”.  These “funds” are not real dollars.  They are theoretical expenditure dollars for determining government expenditures.  The total of all citizen assigned “allocation dollars” determines proportional federal spending.

For example, each citizen receives 2400 units “allocation funds”.  Citizens choose or define categories where funds may be committed.  A citizen divides the 2400 allocation units between these categories in an effective vote for government expenditure.  (Federal budget categories)

For example, the 2008 presidential budget commits 2400 allocation units as follows: social security (608), department of defense (481), medicare (386), unemployment/welfare (324), interest on the debt (261), medicade and child health (209), global war on terror (145).   A citizen “votes” the president budget, a party (red/blue) budget, or a citizen’s own custom budget.

Direct factional allocation governance allows the citizen to “vote” budget expenditures and obligates the federal government to holding these expenditures.  This permits direct citizen Jeffersonian democratic governance of federal budget decisions.

It’s common sense. When service in a restaurant suffers, more waiters are needed. It’s common sense. When fire breaks out everywhere, more fire fighters are needed.  It’s common sense. When crime becomes rampant, more police are needed. It’s common sense. Building a house requires enough carpenters or waiting a lifetime for results. #c535+1 didn’t build Hoover dam.  #c535+1 didn’t build the interstate highway.  Middle America did. (millions of them)

It’s common sense. When democracy morphs to elected oligarchy and America lacks governance, send help to the few surviving democratic representatives.  More representatives are required.  More presidents are required.

Keep the #c535+1.  Send 6800 more.   #c535+1 is elected autocrat-centered oligarchy.  #c7329 is citizen-centered democracy. The MART citizen-chamber does the right thing.  The MART autocrat-chamber gets it done. Third millennium citizen-democracy is unstoppable.  Resistance or delay is truly tragic. 

Got science?   NASA simulates Mars.  The MART #c7329 team simulates democracy.  Born red/blue?  Don’t die red/blue. http://wp.me/p1fQnO-dL

    Would it not be more simple to just weight these categories by priority? For instance;

    1. social security
    2. medicaid and child health
    3. medicare
    4. unemployment/welfare
    5. Education
    6. Infrastructure
    7. Science Research
    8. interest on the debt
    7. department of defense

    Not a priority, global war on terror

      Priority is very important. It is not explicit enough to form a working budget, however. The idea of direct allocation is to come up with a budget for governance.

      Percentage of budget decisions, by dividing 2400 allocation units, sets priority and at the same time clarifies the relationship between priorities. A budget is not possible unless all category distributions are specified.

      By the way, “off budget” expenditures, like the Afghanistan war, are not allowed, as this policy defeats the purpose of direct allocation governance.

    How would you divide up 2400 allocation units among these nine categories?
