    DEMAND that your Representatives and Senators sign on to this legislation:

    http://www.govtrack.us/congress/billtext.xpd?bill=h110-1359

    This bill has been sitting stagnant for over a year. Why on EARTH would congressmembers not want a piece of legislation that requires them to cite specific constitutional legality on crafted legislation???

    Call and write your reps and Senators and DEMAND that they sponsor this bill, and that it be approved in committee and brought to the floor for roll call.

    You want fucking CHANGE?? This is REAL change.

    Or you can just sit on here and bitch back and forth about your favorite party while your country falls apart around you. You have a choice.

    John Shadegg, 3rd District, Arizona.

    Don't quote me on this, but I believe Ron Paul co-authored. I'm willing to admit I might be wrong about that, though.

    I concur. Protocols like this one are desperately needed.

    This bill is picking up steam. We made our voices heard on the bailout (at least the FIRST time through, anyway), and we can do it again.

    Hold your congressmembers' seats HOSTAGE. Tell them they will be hitting the road in November if they do not support this legislation and get it to roll call.

    These cats only want to regulate others, not themselves. Nevertheless, I will certainly mention this to my Congressmen.

    I have to admit though, after reading it my first thought was: I wonder how long it will take them to create an instrument to skirt it, if it became law.

    That would be when we all once again speak up and tell them NO.

    It's high time the citizens started GIVING a fuck again. We get played by congress simply because they know we'll bend over and take it in the ass.

    Just imagine if they got a wake up call, and we became a real THREAT to them. We have so much power in this country, and we practically never use it.

    Admirable plan but pie in the sky. You swat one down and another replaces him/her.
