We The People Think Congress Is Out Of Line.
I'm for term limits but 12 years is too long 6 is plenty. We need citizen legislators not a full time congress. We should make congress a part time job and limit the time spent in Washington, our reps are out of touch with the people. Part time means less pay salaries shoul be cut at least in half and benefits eliminated. Finally we need to increase membership in the house to better represent the people the way the founders intended. That's a petition I can sign!
What about ending private spending on campaigns, making it a set amount each candidate gets, illegal to broadcast ads, and a short time frame outlined for campaigning...that involved public debates, issued statements, and a basic fact sheet of responded to positions? It would take the propaganda and lobbyists' power out of it. Lobbyists are powerful because they contribute to the campaigns...eliminate private funding of campaigns then. Whatcha think?
Internet forwards, posts and petitions are not the correct way toward change. Change requires getting off our butts and away from the computer screen. It's affecting people and proving the willingness to serve the people with their best interest. It's not kissing babies in parades but rather protecting them and their future. It's not becoming highly opinionated, which is what happens being lazy in front of the computer, but advocating true national progress, peace and balance.
Make these changes and I'll vote for you.
