Our Ruling Body: INEXCUSABLE

I know that you have probably seen this before,
but some things just have to be said again and again till it registers with all Americans. Then and only then will the laws be changed. And as with all writers I want to add my two cents. I challenge you, as a fellow American, to read this and  have the will, the strength, and the decency to pass it on. Let your voice be heard. Do not just agree with this article, take a stand and tell it to everybody. Our government is out of control. The citizens who are speaking out about our out of control congress are being called many names and the biggest one is terrorist. 

No one has been able to explain to me why young men and women serve in the U.S. Military for 20 years, risking their lives protecting freedom, and only get 50% of their pay. WhilePoliticians hold their political positions in the safe confines of the capital, protected by these same men and women, and receive full pay retirement after serving one term.It just does not make any sense. It is time for all Americans no matter what their race, creed, or social statis is. this concerns all Americans.

Governors of 35 states have filed suit against the Federal Government for imposing unlawful burdens upon them. It only takes 38 (of the 50) States to convene a Constitutional Convention. That heavy burden is upon all Americans no matter what state you live in.

For too long we have been too complacent about the workings of Congress. Many citizens had no idea that members of Congress could retire with the same pay after only one term, that they specifically exempted themselves from many of the laws they have passed (such as being exempt from any fear of prosecution for sexual harassment) while ordinary citizens must live under those laws. The latest is to exempt themselves from the Healthcare Reform… in all of its forms. Somehow, that doesn’t seem logical. We do not have an elite that is above the law. I truly don’t care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent or whatever. The self-serving must stop. If each person that reads this article and will tell  20 other people, in three days, most people in The United States of America will have the message.. This is one proposal that really should be passed around.

Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution: ”Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States .”
