|Congress has been very very good to me!|
You can have a war in Iraq but you can't call your Senator. It is time we find a legal strategy to gut the current system and set up a system in which Congress can actually REPRESENT citizens and not special interests.
The core of this corrupt system serves Big Money, Big Oil and Big Pharma.
|Congress: Ew, magic doors!|
Solution: Eliminate lobbying.
2) Eliminate campaign donations. If Congress doesn't have to worry about where the money comes from, they can't be bought off as easily.
Solution: Taxpayer funded campaigns.
3) Everybody wants power and control. Serving in the current Congressional environment feeds and builds that power and control. Kick them all out every six years.
Solution: Term Limits of six years.
|Come here Congress....closer!|
Maybe the shutdown will produce an angry constituency that creates the same type of anger that we saw rise up with the Occupy Wallstreet/Anonymous movements. It is time though that we reign in our wild Congress and impose limits on the power and control that has been so rampantly abused.We can only hope that one day Congress will be a congress of the people, by the people and for the people.
