Change.
the messiah is encountering issues and it's either the fault of Bush (the problems were inherited you know) or Congress, who won't cooperate and are trying to keep America down. Either way Obama is not to be blamed!!!!!!!!!

Interesting piece.

Warren Buffett, "I could end the deficit in 5 minutes," he told CNBC. "You just pass a law that says that anytime there is a deficit of more than 3% of GDP, all
sitting members of Congress are ineligible for re-election. 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.

Warren Buffet is asking each addressee to forward this email to a minimum of
twenty people on their address list; in turn ask each of those to do
likewise.
In three days, most people in The United States of America will have the
message. This is one idea that really should be passed around.

*Congressional Reform Act of 2011*

1. No Tenure / No Pension. A Congressman collects a salary while in office
and receives no pay when they are out of office.

2. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security. All
funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security
system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system,
and Congress participates with the American people. It may not be used for
any other purpose.

3. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans
do.

4. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay
will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.

5. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the
same health care system as the American people.

6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American
people.

7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen are void effective 1/1/12.
The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen. Congressmen
made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in Congress is an honor,
not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours
should serve their term's), then go home and back to work.

If each person contacts a minimum of twenty people then it will only take
three days for most people (in the U.S.) to receive the message. Maybe it is
time.

THIS IS HOW YOU FIX CONGRESS!!!!! If you agree with the above, pass it on.

Thinning the herd... just a little earlier than expected.
Between Perry's debate fuckup and Cain's continually growing line of women who say that he harassed them Romney has to be laughing his ass off.

Its not a good thing IMO for conservatives. Seems many of them dislike Romney. Not enough to vote for Obama, but dislike him none the less.

Agreed. Plus he'll get punched in the gut on the flip-flopping shit. He can't attack Obama's health care plan because it was based on the one Romney signed here. And individuals vote, not corporations which Romney is going to have a problem with because his stance on cutting taxes for businesses to improve employment.

Honestly, Obama doesn't have my vote locked up. But the GOP really isn't presenting anyone that would make me not vote for him.

But it's always the lesser of 2 evils for me.
