Have we forgotten -

The secured rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are the causes of liberty. To this end, governments are instituted among men to derive their powers from the consent of the governed to establish laws, conduct business, and define social order. "When any form of said government becomes destructive to this end, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute a new government, laying its foundations on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness." so says the Declaration of Independence.

We are also reminded to heed prudence, to understand that "long established governments should not be changed for light and transient causes, and accordingly, all experience hath (has) shown, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, that to right themselves by abolishing forms to which they are accustomed. But, when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursing invariable the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is the right, it is their duty, to throw off such government and provide new guards for their future security." (Declaration of Independence)

With that said, prepare your vote for November for Congress has held this nation and its ability to move forward and conduct business, provide a secure economic footing, and promote the welfare of its citizens at high risk. It is time to pursue term limits. Compel its officials to civic duty living among the means of its poorest citizens for a month to understand how they survive since election to office secures they are living at their highest levels. Whenever they so derail the plan for doing government business by causing a shut down, their income, their livelihoods, shall be and should be held in trust by the Supreme Court, interest on their funds going into the government surplus until the deemed logjam has been solved. Congress and the President shall not be allowed to go home, travel abroad, or engage in titillating discussions or laying of blame on doorsteps, but deliberate as gentlemen and ladies of the highest moral standards to resolve their differences without the prying eyes of the media spin. Camera's permitted. These discussions, like a court of law, shall be preserved by a sworn court reporter who will then daily distribute copies of these statements to the media without corrections because the public deserves to see what we, through are hard earned taxes, are paying for.

No member of Congress, Senate or House of Representatives, nor White House is above the law. When a government shutdown occurs no member of their staff is considered essential. The only essential is that the officials meet, debate, and iron out a solid, equal, determined outcome for the American People for it is by OUR decree that they serve and it will be by OUR decree that they are removed .

I am now off my soap box, thank you.
