This is part of an email bring passed around that my wife sent me. It suggests, after reading and if you agree, that you pass it on to at least 20 people. Most of the time these 'petitons' just get lost or forgotten, but this is something to think about and act on if you're concerned:
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 considered...in 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.
Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution
"Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States."
The Congress, Senate and most of all Obama are making a mockery of the U. S. Constitution. It's time to stop them dead in their tracks. Obama may not call his efforts to make 'Change' Socialism, but everything he is proposing to do is Socialism in form. He is a Socialist and he has said he wants to fundamentally change the United States. He's fundamentally destroying the U. S. and he has to be stopped beginning with this year's elections and carrying on to 2012 when we will have fairness restored and all of his destructive policies, including health care reform, repealed.
