The country is up to its ears in debt and there seems to be no way to stop it. I am happy to tell you there is a way we can stop it, and you couldn't pick a better time than now to do it.
First we have to identify the root cause of what is most wrong with America. As I have said many times before, the only way elected officials have to keep their jobs is to spend your tax money unless they are mega rich and have money to burn. In order to get the campaign money they must have to stay in office they have to sell their souls and vote for spending bills they know is either outright bad, not necessary or not good for our country. They usually don't get much money for voting for what is good for our country because good PR is usually enough to get a yes vote for those bills.
These elected politicians who sell enough votes, keep their jobs until they are old and gray. The longer they stay in office the more money they can attract. A two term limit would stop that.
In other words legal bribery called campaign donations and earmarks are the reason we are broke. Every administration, Democrat, Republican or what ever has the very same problem. Our constitutional freedom of speech is being used to justify this legal bribery called campaign money. Until we change the constitution to prevent all elected officials from having a money advantage over their opponent, we will have built in corruption that will continue from administration to administration for the foreseeable future. We have no one to blame for this but ourselves, that's right, you and I.
The American voter should insist on all campaign money be paid by tax revenue only.
Every one running for the same office should receive the same reasonable amount to spend for advertising only, carefully audited of coarse. Any unspent money to be returned to the treasury.
A fair way for candidates to qualify for campaign money should be formulated and be the law enforced for every candidate running for the same office.
Our politicians in control now will not vote for this unless forced to do so. This
constitutional amendment should be written and approved by the American voters before a congressional vote is taken.
The Tea Party Express is currently the only organization with enough clout and variety of membership to have a chance of pulling off this last chance effort.
A committee of equal numbers of all nationally recognized parties to write this proposed constitutional amendment. It should be written with every subject kept separate in a way that could be voted on sparately and should not be considered unless it has 70% approval. Of course all suggestions should be examined by constitutional qualified attorneys before being submitted for all pre-congressional voting.
What do you think about this idea? All comments without vulgarity or stupidity will be posted.
