<p>The New IRS lets your choose where your tax money is spent. What would your chart look like? http://t.co/6OsqBuHMaF pic.twitter.com/zUe9BAVGKE</p>— The New IRS (@TheNewIRS) April 14, 2014</blockquote>
Dear Occupy Wall Street,
I'm writing you because I'm hoping you might find this funny, stimulating, obvious, and mostly important.
Some friends and I have built The New IRS. Yes, that IRS. We have been hard at work developing a simulation for a very obvious fix of Representative Democracy:
The ability for each of us to be able to allocate where our tax money goes on our federal income tax forms.
It is a fun and yet profound simulation of a far more complete power to the people. There is nothing partisan about this.
Through very simple participation, we are collecting NATIONAL DATA to be released a few days after TUESDAY - TAX DAY - to reveal any disparities between the will of the people and the actual federal expenditures.
It would mean so very much to me if you would venture to the site and fill it out TODAY or TOMORROW - TAX DAY. (And I promise it is very no-hassle to use).
Even further, if you would care to tweet it or share it through any form of social media, it would be of tremendous help to a very worthy and outrageously obvious cause.
Here are the links:
Long live living, breathing things
