The Sam Adams Alliance inspires, trains, and links allies to advance economic and individual liberty through a strategic combination of new media tools and traditional communications.
The Alliance maintains three very important resources:
The Judgepedia Wiki,
a free, online, collaborative encyclopedia about America’s judges, judicial system, the law and, in general, all things related to the judiciary.
The Ballotpedia Wiki
a free, collaborative, online encyclopedia that focuses on ballots, ballot measures, ballot access for initiatives and candidates, petition drives, supporters and opponents of initiatives and, in general, all things ballot. It breaks down past and present ballot measures by state, year, and issue.
and The Sunshine Review
a collaborative project that acts as a customer service hot-line for government transparency and accountability. It helps people evaluate if their government websites proactively and voluntarily disclose information to the public and media.
In addition, Sunshine Review brings you breaking news about state spending and government corruption.
I had the pleasure of talking to John last week at the AFP summit. John talked about how the Sam Adams Alliance fills the capacity gap on the internet for free market solutions in a non-biased, neutral format. For instance, the judges wiki allows the public to find the records on judges so people can vote in an intelligent way.
The Alliance held a terrific workshop with panelists Emily Zanotti, Eric Odom and Alan Fuller.
When I asked John what can bloggers do in today’s environment, he asked back, “Other than change the world?”
“The mainstream media has let down America, and the bloggers are now filling in that role” and stated, “Americans for Prosperity and the Sam Adams Alliance will never have as much money as Soros, but we have people of principle.”
