It is time to limit Congress and there is a petition under way to do just that without Congress's consent.
Washington doesn't want to stop over spending and balance the budget. They want to eliminate the debt ceiling and spending caps for the next two years.
No kidding and at the rate Obama is spending we could be really ruined by then! It is absolutely ridiculous how they are spending but then act like if they don't get more funds the poor will have to go without or some such nonsense. Maybe they should take some of those billions planned parenthood has swindled murdering babies and at least do some good with that! Even use it for a vacation or to keep up these 8000+ prisoners they have released on us so they don't have to rob and kill us to survive!!!!
Hi, Jackie. It seems to me the career crony politicians are addicted to spending money, like a gambling addiction. I'm going to keep this short because I do not get any enjoyment from chatting about the corruption. Hopefully, petitions can change things in Washington.
I am generally supportive of this idea and plan to sign up, thanks!
Thank you for posting this. I have signed it and have been preaching it for over a year.

MOST republicans are indeed either misinformed or simply don't undertstand the FACT that ONLY 3% of Planned Parenthood Services are Abortion Related and your Tax Payer Funds are Restricted for use ONLY in relation to SEVERE cases which include RAPE, Incest, or where the Life of a Mother is at RISK ~
ONLY in "Republican PRETEND Land" are things any Different ~
If you are RADICAL enough to Disagree with the Conditions listed above, have at it ~
Here is a petition to call for a Convention of State that can...
Stop the EPA's war on property rights.
Restore religious liberty.
Limit executive orders.
Impose term limits on Congress.
Force Congress to balance the budget.

I would suggest we tackle one problem at a time. If you add all sorts of caveats to the mix it become cumbersome and argumentative. Better yet would be getting people elected that have no other agenda. I would suggest publicly funded campaigns and lobby reform as the first thing on the newly elected congressional membership. Then you can move onto things that the rich don't require first.
What "religious liberty" would be restored?
There has been an attack on religious liberties for a very long time. Its one more thing that gets lip service from the White House ... but nothing is done to fix it by the administration.
Finally, the Armed Services has appealed the court to hear a religious liberty case. People don't hear about this stuff on the news because it doesn't help the agendas.
That site is a great reference.
Judging from the blurbs on the site, "religious freedom" means that 1. Christian icons and totems should be on public land and 2. it's not OK to promote Islam as is done with Christianity.
Neither is religious freedom at all, just a further attempt to spread Christianity. As such, I could not in all conscience vote for such a thing; it is both unethical and illegal.
The craziness that is legal and PC fodder for our freedoms and liberties is such a mess it gets morphed back and forth between the arguments and it soon becomes a moot point. For instance is it legal for a teacher to wish you a Merry Christmas on school grounds? What about outside of school? Is the teacher still considered a representative of the school? What about if the teacher is not teaching your child? What about God Bless You? Does it carry the same weight? What about As-salamu alaykum? Is it treated the same? Why would it be different?
Has it come to our little feelings being hurt because we fear someone or something else is being recognized over our own? Is our religion so weak so as to not survive anothers expression of their faith? I just don't get it. If we believe God is the supreme being and all is possible because of him what thing or action can ever change that?
"Is our religion so weak so as to not survive anothers expression of their faith?"
In the case of small children, absolutely, and particularly when that "expression" is a statement of "fact" from a figure of authority such as a teacher. On top of that peer pressure is an enormous thing to the young and when all their friends accept matter of factually the barrage of icons, tokens, comments and exhibitions it becomes fact in their own mind.
Once again is God so weak that if he wants to he cannot overcome another's influence against him? If another's argument is so powerful to influence your belief or lack there of, what makes you think it is right or wrong? Who has the authority to restrict that from happening outside the normal avenues? He is God you know
Yes, and why on earth would we wish or declare death to another religion? Is that a religion? Is that love? Is that equality to women or children with a mind of their own?
Don't worry, God knows what is going on. He has even shared that with us in scriptures, so we know, too. He will be here in due time. And after all, he has given us forever, through Christ Jesus.
Have you read any of the Muslim scripture or are you going by what you have heard? Much of what you speak is cultural and perverted proof of others interpretations of it. God is everywhere and nowhere. God also created evil as well as good. What I really believe is no one person alive, not one, has any idea of what God is. I am okay with that. Are you?
You said it and might not realize it, "God is. I am".
"I Am Who I Am". Ex. 3:14
The funny thing is with as much scripture, philology and mythology as I have read I don't base a belief on any of it. Physical proof of spiritual existence cannot be proven to everyone's edification. So the argument becomes the proof or the lack there of. The bottom line is that one believes in God because one chooses too. No logic or argument can add or take away from it. The real problem is when one forces those views on another. And teaching not preaching is the difference.
What about the "War on Christmas"?? ~ Term Limits on Santa Claws?? Restrictions on the Elf Lobby??
"Freedon" includes the Right to say "Happy Holidays" right??
You can keep your Santa and his Elves fair-tails.
If what I am about to say offends you, I hope you can get over it. It is time we followers of Christ stand up and say something before it is too late. There are people who want to take Christ out of Christmas because it might offend someone. They are antichrist.
Well, how about all of the Christians? Christ is Christmas, the very reason for the Season! If you aren't celebrating Christ then why are you celebrating? Christmas is about the birth of our Savior! Christmas is one of a few holidays left that celebrate "my" Christ. Leave my holiday alone. HoHoHo!
I tell everyone Merry Christmas not Happy Holidays.
LOL ~ Most Christians have N idea what the Meaning of "Christmas" truly is ~ For many, it's simply an Excuse to go BUY a distant relative something they don't need nor want, like a Premium Fruitcake which ultimately ends Up covered in MORTAR and used to patch that whole in the Brick Wall so the Over-Active next door neighbors can't PEEP thru looking for their under garments that went flyin' out the backyard last night ~
M reover, Not everyone is Christian and the C mmon Sense Greeting which is ALL INCLUSIVE, something republicans have NO idea about, would be "Happy Holidays" ~
I believe I see where you fit in.

The funny thing is that when someone relates to you a greeting it is based on their own life and what it means to them to acknowledge you. When the other person takes offense to that because it offends their belief or unbelief and shames the other in retaliation who really is the ass?
I always thought Republicans were in Mad Passionate LOVE with "Freedom & Liberty"??
Why Restrict, Infringe Upon, and Regulate an American's RIGHT & Freedom to run for ELECTED Office by Imposing Term Limits?? Why not let "WE the People" Decide WHEN a CHANGE in Representation is Warranted via Periodic ELECTIONS??
