To tell you the truth, I had a hard time figuring out what to do for a food security act. I mean, here in central North Carolina, food security is not really an issue. Homelessness and hunger aren't exactly rampant so finding someone who suffers from food security issues, much less helping them with it is a bit difficult.
Luckily though, my wife and I just checked our mail and there was my act. We got the 2010 U.S. Census! I've never filled out a census before so you'll have to excuse my excitement. So filling out the 2010 Census is my act. Admittedly a little lame, but...
What if everybody in the U.S. did what I just did? We'd have the data necessary to get an accurate picture of how we need to reallocated resources to solve problems like food security in this country. No longer would we be dependent on applying learnings from a sample to the population at large, we'd actually know where the problems are.
I think non-participation in government is the real problem. It's not too big of a government. It's not too little government. It's simply not being a part of the government.
