Excellent ideas, imo. You touched upon some of the items I had stated in my earlier post. Limit Terms, get rid of the pension plans and make them
purchase health insurance just like everyone else in the country.
In order for this to really start, however, I think the people need to be aware of what is really going on. One of the ways this happened in our
history is through "pamphlets". It's already been well proven that one person can make a difference when it comes to informing people about what
is going on. With the internet it is even easier than it used to be. It never ceases to amaze me how things can quickly go "viral" via the
internet. We need people in city's and town's with some sort of journalistic desire/ability to become involved and educate people on what is going
Personally I've often wondered what I could do. I have toyed with the idea of typing up a small pamphlet with information regarding the Fed Res and
the truth about it and printing out a couple hundred of them and leaving them at truckstops as I pass through. Having no real journalistic ability
though has made me nervous about doing so. I don't want to "lay out" information that people are just going to ignore.
So here it is.
First, begin to truly educate people.
Second, begin to reform local city/township government.
Third, begin to reform county government.
Forth, begin to reform state government
Fifth, begin to reform federal government.
No matter what level of government, terms should definately be limited. My question regarding terms is this. If someone serves a 2 year term in city
government, after that 2 years can they move into county? Or from county to state? Or from state to federal? I can see where that would be a
natural progression, however, if someone goes from city to county to state they will be "in office" for 6 years (assuming they are elected back to
back). Plenty of time for corruption to set in.
Something that I think our current representatives have lost sight of is that their positions are "in service" to "the people". Not "in
service" to "the corporations". They need to be reminded.
