LEGENDmag 23 "Transparency is the new Democracy"

Now that we're done with all the political talk lets get down to brass tax. In this issue we include some tools to help with transparency in our government but what we're really excited about is the best in independent news from Independent people like Next Legends features Gary VaynerChuk to independent companies like Etsy and JBClassics bringing you the best independents have to offer. If that wasn’t enough already, we tapped our friends at Goorin to find out how you can find a great hat and our new Managing Editor Amber Milner helps you find your role as a patriot. And for those of you who can't get enough of politics and want to make sure you can hold your politicians accountable we have good news. There are so many tools we can use thanks to sites like opencongress.org that we can follow when a policy is introduced, when it passes, who voted for it, who gave money to help it pass and who the money was given to. Now that’s independent politics…transparency! And it’s only the beginning. You can read about this and much more in LEGENDmag print issue #23 at LEGENDmag.net
