Comment: "Certified local"

(See in situ)


"Certified local"

Create requirements to be deemed such for local business'. Create a recognizable seal. Work with local newspapers to adopt participation. Create website so people can look where to spend their money. Charge a fee for getting certified. Ideally, the seal should be very recognizable and displayed on the store front. Educate the local population via the local paper or such.
DECENTRALIZATION!!
Keeps money in the community, takes money away from the big corps and their lobbyists. Win win for everyone!

I wanted to do this but just didn't have the time. I'm hoping that some of my liberty minded peers takes up the idea. If implemented nationwide, it would make a HUGE difference.
