#93 /100 Reasons I Blog4Peace / taking action

 I try to keep my political opinions to myself a lot . 
I learned at an early age 2 subjects to avoid talking about in mixed company ... Politics and Religions 
But this is something I want to push and sending out 20 emails did not seem to be enough.

You may ask "How does this come under the topic of Peace ? "
Knowing that Social Security is not in jeopardy would give a great bit of 'Peace of mind' to a lot of people !
I was 17 when I told my Gram that I knew I would never see my SS but would never complain about paying it knowing it may help Her and others I loved. 

I was in my thirties when I was told I have to be 73 to draw SS... so I am not counting on it still being there then. 

But it hurt my heart knowing that there were Seniors Citizens, and others  that were worried this last month that they would not get their checks this month ... For that I am outraged.

Please join with me to spread the word. 
copy and paste this below and send it out to everyone , post it on your blog... need me to email it to you just let me know?

This is something I will fight for and  I hope you all read it all the way through.  You will be glad you did.
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.
If  you agree with the above, pass it on.   If not, just delete.

You are one of my 20+.  Please keep it going.
 Peace and Blessings to You all.
