I posted this on my blog today at Memoirs From Nam. It's so important that I wanted to post it here, as well.

 I got this as an email this morning from Lt. James McCraney, who served in Vietnam with Doug in '69.  It's something I sincerely believe in and I think you will, too.  I've sent it out to my entire email list today.  Please read and then copy and paste to everyone on your email list, as well.  Things have to change.  Let's do our part to change them! Thank you.

The 26th amendment (granting 18-year olds the right to vote) took only 3 months and 8 days to be ratified!  Why? Simple!  The People demanded it.  That was back in 1971 before computers, before e-mail, before cell phones, etc.

Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took 1 year or  less to become the law of the land.  This was because of public pressure.

I'm asking each of you to forward this as an email to a minimum of twenty people on your address list;  in turn, please ask each of them to do likewise.  I sent it to everyone on mine, more than forty.

In three days, most people in The United States of America will have the message. This is one idea, a viable solution, that should be passed around.

Congressional Reform Act of 2011:

1. Term Limits:

12 years only, with one of the possible options below:

A. Two Six-year Senate terms, or
B. Six Two-year House terms, or
C. One Six-year Senate term and three Two-Year House terms

2. No Tenure / No Pension.

A Congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are out of office.

3. Congress (past, present and future) participates in Social Security.

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.

4. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.

5. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.

6. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.

7. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.

8. All contracts with past and present Congressmen are void effective 1/1/11.

The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen.  Congressmen made all of 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 as citizens again and back to work.

If each person reading this contacts a minimum of twenty people, then it should only take about three days for most people (in the U.S.) to receive the message.

It is time.  This is how you fix Congress!  If you agree with the above, pass it on.  If not ... well, I feel sorry for you ... Please get the word out -- please do it now!

“I am only one, but I am one. I can't do everything, but I can do something. The something I ought to do, I can do. And by the grace of God, I will.” ~Everett Hale

I agree with this "Congressional Reform Act of 2011" 100% and have often wondered why something like this hasn't been acted upon in the past. It most certainly has my vote.

A few years ago congressional districts were changed. Of what I have seen in NYC and Phoenix, Each member has a district of the filthy rich to kiss there butts, and a poor district where we get the sh--ty end of the stick. I like your article because congreeional reform is needed just to stymie the rich.
