Sex, Drugs and Bullet Trains at Change.gov


The Obama transition team at Change.gov have implemented an innovative idea called the Citizen's Briefing Book, a way for average citizens to suggest and vet policy proposals that will ultimately be presented to the president.

Anyone can post an idea.

From there it's kind of like ReadIt, where users can give other people's ideas a thumbs up or thumbs down.

So what's on the people's collective mind?

Universal Health Care? Withdrawal from Iraq? Foreclosure prevention?

Not quite:

The top three citizen proposals in order:

Ending Marijuana Prohibition

Bullet Trains & Light Rail

An end to the government sponsored abstinence education to be replaced by an introduction of age appropriate sex education.

Good, if politically inconvenient ideas, all.

FWIW: I posted my own bright idea here.
