Recovering spy, serial pioneer for open and public intelligence

My fellow Americans, I am honored to present to you my thoughts on restructuring and down-sizing the federal government along with a proposed Coalition Cabinet. Many of these names, while stellar, are conventional. I am asking each of you to put forward any suggestions for improving how we govern ourselves. I am strongly inclined to embrace your suggestions by joining your recommended candidates with these candidates to achieve a collective balance at every level of the government, one focused on restoring American the Beautiful.
As I indicated in my first post on 28 September 2010, I believe we must have three Vice-Presidents, one for the Commonwealth who shall be the Principal Vice-President; a second for Education, Intelligence, & Research; and a third for Global Engagement (changed from National Security to break the back of the military-industrial complex and the two ubber Services with no shame).
I am proposing for your public deliberation and consent, some consolidations as shown below–indented organizations are subordinate to, and will be represented on the Cabinet by, the principal organization. I have moved the Department of Commerce to serve under the Vice President for Global Engagement.

Here’s my bottom line for our future: We the People are going to restore the Republic, re-instate the Constitution, balance the budget, and create a prosperous world at peace in which every citizen has a job with dignity and a sufficiency of income to raise a family. My first priority, if you do not spontaneously demand this before 2012, will be achieve Electoral Reform and then to create a Smart Nation.
