• Petition to Reform the United States Congress
    Members of Congress have made a very nice deal for themselves and representing their own interests and the interests of the very wealthy and well to do. Other than line their own pockets, the U.S. Congress seems to accomplish less and less while spending more and more. The United States House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate are BROKEN. This is how you fix them.

  • Citizen Imposed Congressional Term Limits
    The Supreme Court in its rulings held that money is speech and bestowed personhood upon nonhuman entities such as corporations. These decisions have effectively ceded the control of the governmental processes to a minority economic class and administered a coup de grâce to majority rule. The concentration of the national wealth, due in major part to these decisions, has resulted in a dangerous concentration of political power.

  • Take a Stand for State's Rights and Personal Freedom: Co-sponsor HR 2306
    For the first time since 1937, lawmakers have introduced a bill into the House of Representatives to end federal marijuana prohibition. Over the past 70+ years, the federal criminalization of marijuana has: 1) Failed to reduce the public’s demand for or access to cannabis. 2) Imposed enormous fiscal and human costs upon the American people. 3) Promoted disrespect for the law. 4) Reinforced ethnic and generational divides between the public and law enforcement. After seven decades of failure, it is time for an alternative approach.

  • Congressional / Senate Reform Act of 2011
    1. Term Limits. 12 years only, one of the possible options below: A. Two Six-year Senate terms B. Six Two-year House terms C. One Six-year Senate term and three Two-Year House terms 2. No Tenure / No Pension. They collect a salary while in office and receive no pay when they are out of office. 3. All elected officials (past, present & future) participate in Social Security. No longer will Social Security funds be allowed to be accessed for any other purpose than what it was intended for in its origin. All funds in the retirement funds move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and they participate with the American people. 4. Officcials can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do. 5. Officials will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%. 6. Officials lose their current health care system and participate in the same health care system as the American people. 7. Officials must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people - to include tax laws. 8. All contracts with past and present officials are void effective 1/1/12. The American people did not make this contract with them. They made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in Congress and the Senate is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their terms, then go home and back to work.

  • Stop Congress/Senate Health Care Coverage for Life
    When our elected officials carry out their term of service in Congress/Senate, they are covered with health care for life which tax payers pay. Let them deal with health care benefits like the rest of America.

    Limit U.S. Senators to two terms (12 years) and U. S. Representatives to four terms (8 years). The focus of the majority of the members of Congress is on re-election. Many members of Congress have never held a private sector job. Term limits are the only means by which control of the government can be shifted back to the people.

  • Save the Trees on the Rosenberry Drive Levee, Coeur d’Alene, Idaho
    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, blindly following a scientifically unsupportable policy, is calling for the City of Coeur d’Alene to remove hundreds of mature trees from the dike that follows the lake and riverfront around City Park and North Idaho College. We're calling on the Army Corps of Engineers to reconsider the policy and allow the city to keep its trees.

  • Get Corporate Money OUT of Political Campaigns!
    Big money taints our politics because WE allow it to buy elections. As long as money is equated with free speech, everyday Americans will not have the voice in their government that the founders intended us to have. We MUST amend the Constitution to clarify what "freedom of speech" really means to us, and to reclaim our elections. Reclaim America!

  • Let’s Take Our Government Back From the Corruption and Greed
    The corruption and greed has so overrun Washington that our elected officials are favoring corporate interests over what is right or good for the people at every opportunity. No real reform will be possible until we can clean house in Washington, D.C. Our most powerful weapon to fight the corruption is the vote. But to be effective, we must unify enough of us to create a large, unified grass roots movement. We can unify a hundred million of us by formulating a new platform of reform that brings great benefits to the masses. With our huge numbers united behind a reform agenda, we will have the power to vote out a majority of the corrupt politicians in Congress. This petition explains how we can organize and unify enough of us to vote in our own and clean house in our government.

  • Congressional Reform Act 2011
    Whatever your political beliefs, if you believe there is something wrong in America today, this applies to you. It isn't about Republicans, Democrats, Tea Partiers, Conservatives, liberals or individual candidates of whatever political belief or persuasion. Wake up America! Congress itself is broken. It no longer represents the interests of all the people. The system itself has become corrupted infecting all who are a part of it. They are rushing us to third world status draining our jobs and our wealth. Refusing to fairly tax the few beneficiaries of their largess and enriching themselves in the process. What else can explain the Bogus Supreme Court Citizens United decision declaring Corporations are PEOPLE and can make unlimited contributions to politicians. going unchallenged and uncorrected in congress??? This an action whose time has come. If you believe congress is not and should not be a ruling elite answerable only to corporate lobbyists and the super rich 1% who own most of the wealth, act on this. The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year olds ) took only 3 months & 8 days to be ratified! Why? Simple! The people, demanded it. That was in 1971....before computers, e-mail, cell phones, etc. Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took 1 year or less to become the law of the land...all because of public pressure. I'm asking each of you to ACT NOW. Sign the Petition.

  • Responsibility with Rights Amendment
    Under Supreme Court rulings corporations, unions, PACS, and other associations are allowed to throw as much money in political campaigns as they like, corrupting our political processes. Politicians are in a race for these funds, and in the process they trample our rights. We need an amendment to the US constitution to limit the activities of such groups.

  • Lead By Example
    Members of Congress should be entitled to the same health care and pension options available to the average American, and nothing more: Social Security, Medicare, 401K pension plans and the range of health care plans options the rest of us have to choose from.
