Idea in Eighth place at

I was just notified by that my idea was in eighth place in its category. This is the same site that has censored ideas mentioning 9-11, yet this idea has survived for weeks. If it hits the top three in the category, it gets forwarded to Obama, and perhaps more importantly, the more votes it gets the more visibility it earns on the site.

Why not look it over and see whether it's worth a collective effort to bump it into third place. Here's how it reads:

End Censorship of War on Terror
Ever since the "War on Terror" began, there's been massive censorship about the facts surrounding it both within the corporate media, the progressive media, and internet news sites and blogs. The Obama administration should announce a policy of increased transparency surrounding the War on Terror, and the media should take that as a cue to stop censoring their content.

And here's the text of the email I received:

We wanted to let you know that there are only 2 weeks left in the first round of the "Ideas for Change in America" competition, and your idea is in 8th place in the Civic Engagement category.

The top 3 rated ideas for each category will make it to the second round, which will be held in early January so we can announce the winners of the competition just before the Presidential Inauguration. You need 149 votes to move up to third place in Civic Engagement.

The best way to increase your votes is to email your link to friends and ask them to support your idea and pass it on. You can do this by forwarding the following link:

You can also put a badge for your idea on your blog or website by clicking on the link and grabbing the embed code on the right side of your ideas page.

Best of luck!

Once again

that site will not let me do anything! I think it's a conspiracy! I have tried over and over to sign up and vote it will ony let me browse the site. I think this must mean I have been red listed! I should fly somewhere so I can find out for sure.

Contact your represenatives!

I got screwed there too.

They won't let me create a new account because they say my email has already been used, and they won't let me sign in because my email is not found. It's a conundrum. But we are winning none the less. It was a worthy effort. Keep it up. Contact everyone.


Some of us are able to vote. I did it. I am still registered over there. Over time, everything I voted on got deleted, except this one.

I would say, anyone who hasn't tried voting should do so. It can't hurt. At a minimum, others visiting the site will see it.


I just voted for your now has 115 votes.

Those of you who can still vote on this site, please vote for my idea which has avoided deletion for a couple of weeks. The first time I entered it, it was deleted within hours. I complained and re-posted the idea, but the vote count is still low. It calls for NIST to nationally publicize their findings on WTC7 to prevent other high-rises from totally collapsing due to small office fires, and can be found here:


Posting on

I posted a request for a new investigation of 9/11 this morning. In 8 hours it has already received 9 new votes and I hadn't done anything to promote it. With that kind of response I have emailed everybody I know.

Here is the link:

Please forward it to everyone you know and maybe we can get this moved up.

Thanks for your help.


Saturday morning they notified me that they were taking it down because it is, "outside the scope of the Ideas for Change in America project, which aims to offer specific policy solutions rather than investigations into past government action." In my reply of objection I pointed to these "ideas" which apparently do fit in with their aims. Take a look, especially, at the last one on the list. Really classy.
