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 are given choices (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.
Citizen is coach to team democracy. Coach is responsible for success. It’s your call, coach.
