US Reform Act of 2011

The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds) took only 3 months & 8 days to be ratified! Why? Simple! The people demanded it. That was in 1971…before computers, before e-mail,
before cell phones, etc. Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took 1 year or less to become the law of the land…all because of public pressure. This was a time when People of a democracy were taught that a democracy of the people, by the people required all the people to take an active part.
The current sitting congress and those past have systematically defunded public education of the taxpayers under the pretense of National Security and budget. The result is a small controllable voting public who understand government. What this has left the great US with is a country of over 300 million taxable people that are mostly poorly uneducated and therefore easily confused.
I got the following note from an email blast that is going around the web, which i have embellished for clarity, i would like to share this with you. It’s simple and direct the way the founding fathers of US operated.

Congressional Reform Act of 2011

1. Term Limits.
12 years only, one of the possible options below…
A. Two Six-year Senate terms
B. Six Two-year House terms
C. One Six-year Senate term and three Two-Year House terms

2. No Tenure / No Pension.
A Congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay
when they are out of office.

3. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security.
All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social
Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social
Security system, and Congress participates with the American people.

4. Congress can buy their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.

5. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional
pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.

6. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in
the same health care system as the American people.

7. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.
Lies to the people are consider a violation of their oath of Office and will not need a recall. Removal from Office is immediate and can only be restored with a public vote.
Lies while in office will be considered a criminal offense and will be enforced with the same laws already in place that apply to “we the people”.
8. All contracts with past and present Congressmen by congressmen are void effective 1/1/11.
The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen. Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term(s),
then go home and back to work.

If each person contacts a minimum of twenty people then it will only take three days for most people (in the U.S. ) to receive the message.
Maybe it is time.

THIS IS HOW YOU FIX CONGRESS!!!!! If you agree with the above, pass it
on please.
