I Must Pass This On...

I received this message today from my sister-in-law.  I wept... you should too...

No one has been able to explain to me why young
men and women serve in the U.S. Military for 20 years, risking their lives protecting freedom, and only get 50% of their pay. While Politicians hold their political positions in the safe confines of the capital, protected by these same men and women, and receive full pay retirement after serving one term. It just does not make
any sense.

Monday on Fox news they learned that the staffers
of Congress family members are exempt from
having  to pay back student loans. This will get
national attention if other news networks will
broadcast it. When you add this to the below,
just where will all
of it stop?

35 States file lawsuit against the Federal Government

Governors of 35 states have filed suit against the
Federal Government for imposing unlawful burdens
upon them. It only takes 38 (of the 50) States to
convene a Constitutional Convention.

This will take less than thirty seconds to read. If you
agree, please pass it on.

This is an idea that we should address.

For too long we have been too complacent about the
workings of Congress. Many citizens had no idea that
members of Congress could retire with the same pay
after only one term, that they specifically exempted
themselves from many of the laws they have passed
(such as being exempt from any fear of prosecution for
sexual harassment) while ordinary citizens must live
under those laws. The latest is to exempt themselves
from the Healthcare Reform... in all of its forms.
Somehow, that doesn't seem logical. We do not have
an elite that is above the law.
I truly don't care if they are Democrat, Republican,
Independent or whatever. The self-serving must stop.

If each person that receives this will forward it on to
20 people, in three days, most people in The United
States of America will have the message.. This is one
proposal that really should be passed around.

Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States
Constitution: "Congress shall make no law that applies
to the citizens of the United States that does not apply
equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and,
Congress shall make no law that applies to the
Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply
equally to the citizens of the United States ..."

You are one of my 20+
