  • AMENDMENT CONCERNING ELECTION OF FEDERAL OFFICERS
    Section 1: ARTICLE II, Section 1, Paragraphs 2 and 3 to the Constitution of the United States is hereby repealed and superseded by this amendment. Henceforth, the President and the Vice President shall be elected directly by a popular vote of all citizens 18 or over on Election Day, as determined by the Congress and approved by the President in accordance with the Constitution.
    Section 2: Amendment XII and Amendment XXIII shall be superseded by this Amendment except for the following sentences of Amendment XII:
    The person having the greatest number of votes for President shall be President
    The person having the greatest number of votes for Vice President shall be Vice President
    No person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice President of the United States.
    The President and Vice President shall not be an inhabitant of the same state.
    Section 3: Each member of the House of Representatives shall represent no more then 250,000 +/- 12,500 citizens. As the nation’s population increases or decreases the number of House member will increase or decrease to accommodate this requirement. Congressional Districts shall be compact and drawn along state, country, city, town and village lines wherever possible to accommodate equal representation. In some instances, election district boundaries may have to be used but in no case can election districts be divided except in accordance with state, county and local laws. In cities with a population greater than one million (1,000,000) Congressional Districts need not be compact but drawn in such a manner so as to reflect the various ethnic, cultural and neighborhood interests, differences and diversities residing within our country.

    Section 5: The Congress shall have the power to establish by law all procedures pertaining to the election of President and Vice President including: the certification and transmission of election results, a sorting and winnowing process of potential candidates, voter identification, guaranteeing each citizen the right to vote in secret and ensuring each vote is counted.
    Section 6: Federal judges shall have the power to review and adjust Congressional District boundaries to better reflect Section 3, but the compliant must come from within the Congressional District(s) with an accompanying petition signed by ten per cent (10%) of those residing within the district(s).
    Section 7: a. Any state having fewer than 250,000 citizens shall be guaranteed one representative and two Senators.
    b. The District of Columbia may elect representatives in accordance with its population and Section 3.
    c. The District of Columbia being once a part of Maryland may take part in electing Senators from Maryland.

    So it is OK to call President Obama a Stalinist, a communist, a socialist, a fascist and compare him to Hitler, but heaven forbid we say Rumoney is uncomfortable around black people when in truth he is uncomfortable around all people.

  • One way to assist working families, single mothers or fathers and just plan people to move ahead:

    A REVERSE INCOME TAX PROGRAM for lower and middle class wage earners instead of taxes being withheld from paychecks the government would add additional income with the goal to provide additional income to those most likely to spend the income on goods and services thereby reducing poverty and create jobs.

    A WORKER RECEIVING A WAGE OF $20,000 WOULD RECEIVE AN ADDITIONAL $30,000
    30,000 15,000
    40,000 10,000
    50,000 5,000

    The question you also should have asked is; “Do you believe that Mittens Rumoney will do anything different?”

    One way to fund social security: Change the pay roll tax by reducing it from 6 to 5 per cent on the first $100,000 which would be matched by the employer then a graduated upward tax on all earnings (gross income) above that amount.

    It seems to me that the best we could do is to hire the occupiers who wrote the comment to staff the SEC, and have the SEC staff occupy their mommies and daddies homes for awhile while they learn a new trade.

  • First let me thank you for remembering what happen on December 7, 1941. I was three yet I still have memories of my father jumping out of his chair a raging through the house. He attempted to reenlist but was told he was needed for the home war effort. I think it was a soft way of saying you are too old which he was. Of my uncles going to war thankfully they all returned.
    Now the topic at hand here is my version of what is required.
    CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT TO CONTROL CORPORATIONS
    Corporations, companies, businesses, limited liability concerns and any other similar organization organized for profit are to be created by the individual states and can be regulated by all levels of government in accordance with state and federal laws, rules and regulations. Under no circumstances shall they be considered or equated with being a natural person(s), individual (s) or citizen(s).

    5. HEALTH CARE
    A. Raise the Medicare entitlement fee to 2% of total income including wages, salaries, bonuses, interest, dividends, capital gains and other forms of income. Those paying more than $2,000.00 will receive a tax deduction.
    B. Allow Federal government to negotiate with PHARMA industry to lower drug prices.
    C. Allow VA Hospitals to care for low income non-veterans.
    D. Carry out the Medicare/Medicaid cost reductions mandated by the Affordable health Care Act so that the growth can be slowed. Putting these provisions into action fully and as soon as possible is the best way to reign in spending.
    E. Allow Medicare to bundle payments for several standard procedures nationwide phase in over the next four years payments for all procedures and primary care completely replacing ‘fee-for-service’.
    F. Implement competitive bidding for durable medical equipment, prosthetics, orthotics, laboratory tests, pharmaceutical and other medical supplies.
    G. Require electronic eligibility, claims processing and payment as well as centralized physician credentialing.
    H. Do not pay extra for technologies that are more expensive but no more effective than other available technologies.
    I. Allow all citizens a under the age of 60 a choice between a Medicare Public Option or private health insurance. All over 60 would receive Medicare.

  • We are seeing a peaceful, non-violent assembly of thousands exercising their Constitutional Rights as citizens of a free and noble society to speak, petition and protest against the Wall Street criminals, right-wing intolerant politicians and overwhelming police repression and violence. The use of instruments of brutality to cause pain and harm to citizens in the name of law and order is unexcusable, and only results in anarchy, mayhem and confusion.

    I would suggest that a Financial Transaction Tax be used to fund the Infrastructure Loan Bank. Funding of the ILB would come from a tax on stocks of 0.025% on all trades (buy or sell) plus an additional 0.1% on all short term trades. Any trade made within the same 48 hour period will be considered a short time trade. All derivative trades will pay a tax 0.05%.

    I can understand where the District should have a voting member in the House of Representatives, but I would rather they be allowed to vote for Senators along with the State of Maryland since it was Maryland from which the District was taken. Actually the portion of the District which was taken from VA was given back to VA.
