    Barack Obama made like 506 promises to us, the American people; and
    significantly he promised that he would have the most transparent administration in history.

    Libertarians and limited-government conservatives believe that transparency will reveal excesses and waste in government, suggesting that private solutions are better.
    Liberals believe transparency will validate government programs and root out corruption. Transparency is a win-win.
    A functional, cleaner government is better than a dysfunctional, wasteful, & corrupt one.

    As part of this commitment, Obama said will not sign any non-emergency bill without giving the American public
    an opportunity to review and comment on the White House website for five days, called Sunlight before signing".

    (Here we can track how he is doing... PolitiFact | The Obameter: Tracking Obama's Campaign Promises

    for a 'promise-kept %' of 24%. - But this thread is not about those.)
