some of the folks on this list aren't american or US citezens and
might think that this is a bit presumptious.....but here goes:-

the first thing the white house should do is educate its customers and
organise voting properly

the next thing it should do is apply for membership of the European
Union

following that, the use of other languages might be a considerably
benefit - e.g. spanish, chinese and hopi spring to mind

finally, what fee is being paid for this, and in what (stable)
currency, and under which tax treaty?
