  • Congressional Term Limits
    Being a Congressperson or Senator was never meant to be a career or lifetime position. No one should be supported by the citizens of the US for the rest of their lives for working as a congressperson for 5 years.

  • Draft Howard Dean to run in 2012 as a Democratic Primary Challenger.
    With the 2012 election fast approaching, we are gonna get stuck with two dismal choices: A potentially insane Republican candidate or a weak and timid Democratic incumbent who doesn't really work for progressives. A lot of us have come to the realization that Obama is not the progressive that he pretended to be in 2008. He is worse than a Republican because he uses his position as a Democratic President as cover to pass conservative legislation. Even if a progressive primary challenger lost to the President, it would at least force Obama to move closer to his base, the people that elected him in the first place. Howard Dean would be a great choice. Let's call him to action so that he can push the President in the right direction and maybe even replace him.

  • Congress's Benefits
    We need a constitutional amendment restricting benefits of all Congressional and government employees to those publicly available to all Americans (such as Social Security and Medicare). They should not be able to give themselves better benefits than they give the rest of us.

  • Campaign Finance Reform
    As long as we continue our system of allowing the very rich and corporations to rule by donating to our representatives, obviously, it will be they who rule our country. That is, in my opinion, the reason for the mess we are having now! If we have serious campaign finance reform, allowing anyone running for political office to have equal chances with public financing, we will have a very different political outlook!

  • Congress must abide by all laws they impose on the American People
    Congress imposes laws on the American people but exempts themselves from having to live with them. Examples are healthcare, social security, retirement, etc. If congress had to live within the laws and restrictions they create for other Americans we feel that we would get better, faster and more intelligent decisions from an elected congress and senate.

  • Removing Republicans From Power By Voting
    I am for the majority of the people; this two party system isn't working for the majority, it has always worked for the 2%. I feel there is more good people than Republicans, and there more poor people than richs Republicans people.

  • Treason Against USA
    These "secret pledges" signed by the GOP supercede and conflict with their pledges of allegiance to the USA.
