In U.S., Trust in State, Local Governments Up

In U.S., Trust in State, Local Governments Up | Gun Safety  via  Mental Health  Care | Scoop.it

FEDERALISM RELATED TOPIC

Sixty-five percent of Americans trust their state government to handle state problems and 74% trust their local government to handle local problems. Both figures are up from last year, and are at or near the highs for the last decade.

It makes sense that more people trust the state government more than the local government because the state government makes bigger laws and can over rule the local government. 

Ian (ACL) Whitney's comment, February 16, 2014 12:02 PM
It makes sense, I trust the state government more than the lacal government. Mainly because I don't keep up with the local government as much so I never know what's going on.
Brian Bertram's curator insight, April 16, 2014 11:22 PM

This article is about trust in the government.  It said that trust is on the rise for our local and state government.  This is good since it means that people are happy with how things are going.  They should be trusting in the government since they are the ones that elected the officials to run it.

This is a good review of how social media can help governments engage the community, and efforts under way in the UK. I was left wondering from the beginning of the article, why are government officials following only a percentage of the people following them?

As usual, when I write about this topic, let me start off by being very clear: Young Earth creationism—the idea that God created the Earth 6,000 to 10,000 years ago, borne of a literal interpretation of the Bible—is wrong.

Having been with social media since the start, my eyes start to roll when I see another "Lookee, social media is great and growing" post. But the news feed for this site shows there are elected officials who still think digital tools and communication are a fad. This infographic does an awesome job with the numbers - whether someone is open to taking them in is always another question.

Semester 2 Assignment Week #2

 

The push for voter identification and proof of citizenship as some states seek to crack down on what they fear is fraudulent registration and, in some cases, fraudulent voting is seemingly being hindered. Under the motor-voter law, federal officials distribute voter-registration forms in all of the states to help increase voter participation. However, when states asked that those forms request proof of citizenship, the federal Election Assistance Commission rejected, arguing that they cannot tell the federal government what to include on federal forms that Congress is constitutionally incapable of doing so, and further, that this would hamper voter turnout. Now it looks like some states are vowing to go to the courts for permission to ask newly registered voters to show proof of citizenship on these registration forms.

 

For this issue, I’m not totally sure where to stand. In the article it’s mentioned that “every time an alien votes in an election, that vote effectively disenfranchises a United States citizen.” Generally, I would feel that this is a valid point, even a problem worth addressing. On the other hand, I recognize that many people who are citizens of the United States don’t bother voting, and that all people willing to vote and wanting to have a voice should have the right to vote. So should having a voice be limit those rightful (legal) citizens of America? Or should it be opened up to anyone living in the U.S. who simply wants to be represented in a country where the people (legal or not I guess) I have a voice?

As we in Florida are concerned about the Race to the Top orchestrated State School Scores, let us not forget the real injustice inflicted on the students:

 

"In light of all of the above, my advice to parents is this. Remember that these tests are hardly a measure of your child’s value or promise as a student. Be outraged if she is now labeled “below proficient” based on tests that were designed to have scores drop like a stone."
