The problems we face today exist because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

Vote Republican for a real change you can believe in.

Vote Republican

This amendment has thousands of signatures and is nothing new...Someday it might have enough votes to pass.

What could possibly be in it that you so vigorously hate?

Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution

An idea whose time has come

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 didn't pay into Social Security, 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 that is being 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. This is a good way to do that. It is an idea whose time has come.

Does anyone else have a job like that; where you can take five weeks off, all in one shot, with pay, and still have a job when you get back??

It gives 'the big spender' to implement more Executive Orders.

and I'll remind you of his lie on July 3, 2008, presidential candidate Barack Obama said this:

"The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion for the first 42 presidents — #43 added $4 trillion by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion of debt that we are going to have to pay back — $30,000 for every man, woman and child. That’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic."

Doesn't matter as they are all a bunch of schmucks anyway.

It's a bad thing. People forget things on average 81 days. By the time congress goes back, everyone will start thinking Republicans did something other than sue the president.
