Money well spent

In light of the budget deficit, we need to examine more closely than ever, the justification of every expenditure.

There is one justifiable expenditure in particular that is not getting much attention; governmental oversight.

We have agencies in government that are supposed to protect our interests while they are in the hands of our government.

Their failure illustrates that they are incompetent or
they are out gunned.

It is possible to impose casino security on the spending of our power, our trust and our treasure.

It is possible to make it (nearly) impossible to betray the public trust and get away with it.

That kind of security needs to be our first funding priority.

Though it will be cost effective, it is payable upfront.

Exactly the same can be said for the robust webcasting of
deliberative meetings, to a searchable archive; an integral
aspect of that casino like security.
