Compared to Congress, Ali Baba was a petty thief. The men and women we elect to serve us have been picking our pockets for decades.
They spend money faster than a drunken sailor. We though we elect them they take their marching orders from the Wall Street bankers, lawyers and lobbyists,
We need to throw those that violate the Constitution into prison. Those who have been elected to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution deserve to spend the remainder of their lives in a padded cell.
For every two years they serve Congress, they should serve another two years in state prison. Instead of making our money disappear we should make them disappear. Many of them started out as honest and ethical human beings, but once they were elected, they sold their souls to the devil.
It is well known that when an individual achieves a position of power, their honesty and virtue disappear. The problem is that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Like fire, government is a dangerous servant and a fearful master. When a fire is under control it can cook your food and warm your house, but when it is out of control it can deprive you of both your food and your house.
We need to control the fire we call Congress. If we don't control it, it will consume us. To regain control we first need to reduce the size of the Congressional Districts, thereby increasing the number of Representatives. We need to take the power that is currently vested in the hands of 435 career politicians and redistribute that power back to the people.
This can be accomplished by creating thousands of new Congressional Districts and electing virtuous men and women like you and I to serve the people in their communities. An amendment that would limit the size of Congressional Districts to no more than 50,000 people was ratified by Congress on March 25, 1789.
This proposed Amendment was the first of twelve submitted to the states for ratification. Twelve states voted to ratify the amendment, but Connecticut failed to submit the paperwork due to their confusion with one word in the amendment, to the Secretary of State, so it failed to be added the first amendment in the Bill of Rights.
This amendment is still pending. To be made law, thirty eight states must vote in favor of its ratification. Currently eleven states have already done so and we need 27 more state legislatures to vote on its ratification for it to become the 28th Amendment.
Some years ago I read that our forefathers took no salary and the reason was because it caused corruption and dishonesty...I certainly believe that this is the truth, always have. Darn few that have money are decent people...if they work for it and attain it, a better chance. Let us face it, the legislature does not work a 40 hour week, more like maybe eight days a month..hence, they should not be paid for time that they are not in DC and in session....with so many governors like the maggot faggot, this is going to be a hard sell. Then we have governors and too many people on pot and the brain cells are no longer there to think with...case in point...Steve Bullock, Gov. of Montana..sees nothing wrong with Sharia and even though it is now a Federal offense to allow, he is going to do so and I suspect, this is a state thing..too bad for the citizens of Montana..he is a complete jackass to put it bluntly.
The worst aspect of professional politics, leading the world to an unnatural end.
