    select a Citizens consul to over see the Nation business?

    Today we can no longer trust those whom we elect into office to do the right thing for our nation and our people they ignore the laws they attack the very citizens who elect them.

    To them its a game they and they alone get to play against the people of this nation look at the debt why should they care their not the ones who need to worry about paying it no that's left up to the mass's to suffer for their folly. Look at out court's what a sad joke today we see nothing but straight ideological lines being drawn and be damned the laws that govern them.

    We have a President today who is the most Divisive our nation has ever held in office he gives no pretense at uniting our nation instead he does everything he can to further the divide......you all understand the future consequence of that action.

    Why not give the citizens the final say in what is done in our government think of it a Jury Duty for our Nation.

    Selecting a "citizens counsel" would quickly become indistinguishable from current elections for Congress and the president. When power is up for grabs, corrupt people will try to get it.

    Congress is a citizen's committee.
