  • My Way of Fixing Congress

    This is my way of fixing Congress.
    #1 All Congressmen need to be able to show a balanced personal budget before being selected to run for office.
    #2 It is just a job & when you leave that job, you also leave all of its benefits & pay behind.
    #3 Any & all laws passed must be applied to & followed by all Congressmen, no exceptions.
    Do you think these three simple rules would change the way Congress looks right now?

    I agree, having tax cheats and folks who act like they are above the law sets us up for the "Elitist" attitudes we have now with some Bureaucrats, not only in Washington but in some local elected officials. We live in a Constitutional Republic which means that no one is above the law of the land and subject to incarceration if they violate the oath they took when they took office.

    Many of us that have served this country with our own blood took this oath I, [name], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.[1]

    Many take that oath very seriously because we took it before a God that we fear. If you don't fear God chances are you wont respect the oath you swore, that is a simple fact.

    Our elected officials in Congress and the House take this oath,

    • How many of our elected officials in Congress take there oath seriously is very questionable. The problem is we don't hold them accountable because so many folks think we live in a Democracy and don't even know the "Pledge Allegiance". Our government is a reflection of the people, we allow them to get away with what they do.
    • We now have some in Congress that are more than willing to sell us out to the UN and International Treaties that are Treasonous and clearly violate the oath that they swore. So I would add that they should be held accountable to the oath of office they swore and any treaties that they vote yes on that violate that oath and usurp our Constitution and Sovereignty be treated seriously and enforced by law. You and I don't go into a court room and swear an oath then get caught lying without a contempt of court charge, unless your the President, or some other high level official that seem to be above the laws of the land. These double standards must end, you break the law, you go to jail, no matter who you are, that is what a Constitutional Republic is. A Democracy is nothing more than "Mob Rule" which history has shown, never works because you end up with what we have now, lawlessness in the Government and a top down instead of bottom up form of Government. Our country was set up by our founding fathers that gives us a different form of government than we have now. Local government is the most power, starting with you in your own home and property, then the local sheriff, then State, least of all the Feds. There was no crime unless there was a victim. Now we have a rule of law by decree, not a rule of law by the Constitution which assures you of certain rights spelled out in our Bill Of Rights.

      Here's a thought: with the technology that we have, I say disband Washington DC. Bring our elected officials back to their home office, and have their own constituency be the ones in contact with them. Special Interest groups would need to travel to 50 different offices, and there would be no chance that DC would be afraid of a terrorist threat. Plus, all the buildings would be available IF there was some need to get all the swine back in one place ..
