I'm thinking of writing a blog post called "The OpenGov/Transparency/Gov2 Community is the Tea Party for Political Adults." -- the idea being that the Tea Party is pissed off because government takes their too much of money and is stupid with it. The Tea Party solution is (in my opinion) sort of a childish "let's take our toys and go home" solution -- that we should just get rid of government, or, as Grover Norquist says "drown it in a bathtub."

The OpenGov/Transparency/Gov2 crowd agrees with the premise: government isn't cost effective. But I think it doesn't agree with the proposed solution, and instead of saying "and therefore there shouldn't be government" it says "so let's fix the systemic problems that cause that."
