This petition is to ask you 112 th Congress members to voluntarily step down and not to seek any political office in this nation again, it is becoming more and more clear that the US Constitution is not something any of you wish to follow or learn from, the bills you have drawn up and plan to vote into laws show that you no longer hold America best interests at heart
S. 1867 SEC. 1031. AFFIRMATION OF AUTHORITY OF THE ARMED FORCES OF THE UNITED STATES TO DETAIN COVERED PERSONS PURSUANT TO THE AUTHORIZATION FOR USE OF MILITARY FORCE.
This Section grants authority to indefinitely imprison people, without charge or trial, both abroad and inside the United States and would mandate military detention of some civilians who would otherwise be outside of military control on Suspicion Alone, Add in the Unmanned Drones you have approved for use of inside US Borders, and including the stifling or 1st Amendment Rights of US Citizens it has become obvious that you will continue to erode the fabric of this country and destroy it along with the spirit of the founding fathers if you are allowed to continue.
1. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
The Bills and Resolutions show that this Congress is only looking after its well being and not that of those that have elected them into office.
This S.J.Res.29 a proposed amendment to the Constitution does not go far enough to protect our democratic process from the influence of non-citizens or the excessive influence of the very rich. This is a Token that has no real teeth to it, vague and open like everything else.
S.J.Res.29 - A joint resolution proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States relating to contributions and expenditures intended to affect elections.
The Vagueness of the current Bills and Resolutions and the piggy-backing of other issues that can loosely be applied the current issue with open ended statements like "and for other purposes" at the end of most of these bills. This implies that these bills are not firm, open to interpretative reasoning and allows Lobbyists and Special Interest Groups because this vague wording rather then using plan firm statements allows loopholes and applications of these bills to issues and objects that they did not originally apply too .
This vagueness only leads to debate.
The debate only leads to polarization.
This polarization of this country can be laid directly at your feet,
I know some of you ran with the best intentions in mind, I do not believe anyone runs for office thinking, "Let's give my voters the short end of the stick", but after getting into office you were probably told things are not done this way. You probably decided to work within this system of give and take, "you vote for my bill I will vote for yours," the pandering and one can only hope it was after a few years the lobbyists and special interest groups showed up and and then you all lost your way.
We the People, voted for you,
We the People, put you into office too look out for our interests,
We the People, are not pleased with your actions,
We the People, are not pleased with the way you allow Corporations to dictate governmental policies,
We the People, respectfully ask you all to step down do not seek re-election to any Governmental Office,
We the People, ask for new elections for all branches of office.
