I fully support this.  Let me state for the record, speaking as a subject matter expert, young men and women join the military and go to war because the adults (who don't go to war) glorify battle and encourage their young to "defend" this country and their way of life.  Such honorable service should be a prerequisite for later service in any political position.  

We went a long way to throwing all the politicians out of congress in 2010, and if we persevere, we should be able to get rid of another chunk in 2012, to include the current president and all his Czars.  Then in 2014 we should be able to finish the job.  

NOTE: America has not actually had to defend her shores and way of life from outside forces since 1945.  Korea, Cuba,Vietnam, Grenada, Mogadishu, Iraq I and Iraq II, Afghanistan, and most recently Libya did not require American presence.

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. While Politicians 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.


Monday on Fox news they learned that the staffers of Congress family members are exempt from having to pay back student loans. This will get national attention if other news networks will broadcast it. When you add this to the below, just where will all of it stop?

35 States file lawsuit against the Federal Government
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.

This will take less than thirty seconds to read. If you agree, please pass it on.

This is an idea that we should address.

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 receives this will copy and forward it on to 12 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 ."
