Got this in an email today - I think i'm in favor... what are your thoughts?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds) took only 3 months & 8 days to be ratified! Why? Simple! The people demanded it. That was in 1971...before computers, before e-mail, before cell phones, etc.

Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took 1 year or less to become the law of the land...all because of public pressure.

I'm asking each addressee to forward this email to a minimum of twenty people on their address list; in turn ask each of those to do likewise.

In three days, most people in The United States of America will have the message. This is one idea that really should be passed around.

Congressional Reform Act of 2011

1. No Tenure / No Pension. A Congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are out of office.

2. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security. All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people. It may not be used for any other purpose.

3. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.

4. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.

5. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.

6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.

7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen are void effective 1/1/12. The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen. Congressmen made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term(s), then go home and back to work.

If each person contacts a minimum of twenty people then it will only take three days for most people (in the U.S. ) to receive the message. Maybe it is time.

Share it, email, do whatever you want, if you like it - just tell people.

Add to this a limit for service to two terms (like the President) and you've got a system that will draw people sincere about service rather than motivated by power.

You find people by typing their e-mail address, or by the suggestions. Think of it like twitter, just because they are following you doesn't mean you have to follow them back, nor do you have to share any information with them.

Did everyone get my link to http://mrprkr.me/dbox for the drop box drawing to win a free Pro account (50GB)? Do it! They are giving 10 away!

If you don't know what dropbox is....signup now it'll blow your mind.
http://mrprkr.me/250 <- and if you signup on that link (referral) we both get an extra 250MB of free storage in addition to the 2GB for the free account.
