Dear past, present and future Presidents of the United States
Past, present, and future Senators
Past, present, and future Members of the House
Past, present, and future Presidential Cabinet Members,
The citizens of this great country, the United States of America have been done an injustice, and it has masked itself in the form of the Federal Government. Our founding fathers would be appalled at the current state of affairs currently engulfing this country. Political parties have become nothing more than a masquerade party to hide the faces of those with hidden agendas, with special appearances from the Corporate Special Interest Groups and Lobbyist with personal blank checks. The party is so graciously being sponsored and funded by the blood, sweat, and tears of the hard working American Citizens. It is now time for the party to end, and for public service to be restored and upheld by those elected as public servants.
It is apparent that Senators, Members of the House, and the Presidents have detached the jobs and responsibilities of their publicly elected positions from having anything to do with being a public servant. American Citizens deserve to have the sanctity and job responsibilities of a public servant restored and honored. We would like to propose the following plan of action to restore elected public service jobs, to their rightful place of being held with honor and dignity……..
1. The office of a Congressmen can not be held for more than two consecutive terms, and no more than four terms total:
a. Career Politician is a job title that should be eliminated to ensure a public servant does not become complacent in an elected office
b. To provide and to prevent one from becoming withdrawn and outdated from the issues affecting the people of the district and the people of this nation.
c. It will provide an opportunity for younger citizens, the future of this country an opportunity take part in holding a position in government. The older generation must realize they will not be around forever, knowledge has to be passed down and distributed, they can often times be out of touch with young America, and we must respect the ideas and knowledge of our youth in making decisions that will
affect their generation
d. This will make it more difficult for a politician to be bought by Corporate America
2. Congressman should be required to hold no less than quarterly district citizen meetings. Citizens should be provided with current issues of Congressional debate and registered voters of that district asked how they would like their elected official to represent their voice during a vote:
a. This will allow a Congressman to vote and make decisions that truly represent the voice of the people the position was elected to serve
b. Citizens will be abreast of topics being discussed and allows for more transparency
c. Voting along party lines will be eliminated, voting according to the voice of the people installed, and purpose and job of a public servant will be restored
d. Will also help eliminate the influence of Corporate Special Interest
e. American citizens will feel they really do have a voice in government and decisions made affecting the country
3. The salary of a Congressman should be based upon the current economic status of the country, as eligible weeks of unemployment are determined by the unemployment rate at the time you file. A Congressman’s salary should be decreased or increased depending on the economy:
a. This will be a reminder that a public servant should find reward in serving the people
b. A public servant is not above issues affecting the American people, an adjustment in pay will keep them more grounded and not forget the struggles of those they were elected to serve
c. Money will not be an incentive, Congress will be more inclined to work together towards a better economy as their pay will be affected during unfavorable economic times
This plan of action will in no way eliminate all of the injustice that has been heaped upon the Citizens of America. It will however force elected officials to remove their masks and identify their party……..Democratic Party, Republican Party, Tea Party…………Masquerade Party. There should only be one party, a party of the people, for the people, and by the people.
Which party are you with?
Citizens of the United States of America
