A Note On Transparency

Thursday, January 28th, 2016

The hard thing about Transparency is that it is not a one way street in terms of traditional American Political Ideology. Union action in large public projects is as much of an issue as Citizens United. If Americans want true transparency in public spending in the United States (arguably amazingly valuable to the country’s well being) we have to get rid of Citizen United, make lobbying transparent and an open part of the process, and insure Union–and all contractor–transparency as well. ALL difficult and courageous objectives. But they are not part of a standard Democratic or Republican dialog. It’s a Third Way Road. These are things that Bernie Sanders won’t tell you, incidentally, and they may play a very big part in this next Presidential election.
