Keeping in mind that the government is not a business and cannot be run or managed as one, this does not mean that our government cannot be more responsive to its citizens. First, how would you define “responsiveness” based on your own definition? Do you think that the government is responsive (enough) to its citizens? Why or why not? In what ways could the government be more responsive to its citizenry? Would an increase in responsiveness improve civic engagement (voter turnout, donating to campaigns, attending campaign rallies, signing petitions, writing letters to our Congress people, etc.)? In thinking about Porter’s argument that citizens use the consumer world to make political decisions, how does this compare with your own decision-making in politics? Do you agree/disagree with Porter’s argument
