How can I teach our children about our special government, with its checks and balance system, and how it is a government of the people, by the people, and for the people, when it clearly is none of these. We need to fix Congress: 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 Security. All funds in the Congressional retirement returns 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. A Congressman/woman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they're out of office. 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 12/31/14. The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen. Congressmen/women 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. 8. Congress will no longer pass bills in violation of the Constitution such as HR 347 removing our right to protest when secret service agents are present.

I've been volunteering as a grassroots activist for a large part of my adult life, traveling to meetings, demonstrations, activities necessary to retain some sort of democracy here, we uphold human rights and environmental protection. Often what I have done has been extremely dangerous on land and on the open sea. Now I'm finding no money left in the community, it has been shipped to Exxonmobile and Halliburton and huge drug cartels bigger than most counties economies. I'm seeing no money here for basic needs, if we can't afford teeth and you can, and your supporting the above policies and keep giving yourself pay raises, at one point you (as a politician and speaker of the people) you might search your soul and ask "where is the justice"? Activists can't afford teeth but you can, wow....

Q: Should the term "Public Servants" refer to sacrifice with little compensation, as it does for our Tribal & other Community Leaders? Current elected officials' expense accounts, benefits packages & salaries = insanity. If they made what we make the greedy ones would quit! We can get their attention and MAKE OUR VOICE HEARD Please, sign this petition and share with friends. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salaries_of_members_of_the_United_States_Congress
