Interesting, Pass It Along...

The following was e-mailed to me by a Rational Nation USA "regular." I thought it worth posting as it makes a whole lot of sense. Feel free to use as you might see fit.

Friends - I have received and read this at least two times before now and sent it on to a few folks and so far it hasn't done anything for us. I would be really surprised if ANY congress person would consider it or any part of it. After all most people look out for themselves first and then the government which is why we now have, after the last election, exactly what we had before it. Look for four more years of deviousness and gridlock by BOTH sides.

We hear a lot about welfare, corporate and otherwise. Well in my opinion the benefits that our politicians give themselves are nothing more than political welfare and border on fraud. Why is it that after just a few years our congressmen/women receive such wonderful benefits for life when our brave women and men in the military barely get enough to survive. after offering up their lives so the politicians can give themselves these benefits?

We survived a Revolutionary War, a Civil War, a Great World War (the 1st one), the Second World War, Korea, Vietnam, and many other smaller wars. Lets pray that we can survive this War on Our Freedoms!

Right or wrong that is my opinion and why I am glad I am as old as I am... A regular reader of RN USA.

Subject: Warren Buffet - please read...takes 1 minute--VERY IMPORTANT FOR ALL OF US ...

Warren Buffett, in a recent interview with CNBC, offers one of the best quotes about the debt ceiling:

"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 one (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

Congressional Reform Act of 2012

1. No Tenure / No Pension.

A Congressman/woman collects a salary while in office and receives no
pay when they're out of office.

2. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social

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/women are void
effective 12/1/12. The American people did not make this
contract with Congressmen/women.

Congress 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. Don't you think it's time?



  1. Great Ideas but will never happen unless there is a public uproar and I can't see the live off the government crowd participating.

    The Senate is now trying to do away with the filibuster because slimy reid does not believe in a representative government. Can't see either party willing to give up their power and perks.

  2. No chance as long as this lady is given a free phone and a box of King-dons.

  3. You'd have to amend the constitution to make those things happen.

    Don't see it happening.


  4. Not only that, way too many people in Congress are dishonest greedy scumbags in it to see how much they can scam the American people for. Why else would they dislike these reasonable and ethical changes.
