FURTHER, OUR REFORM AGENDA IS ........

  • Make it a constitutional DUTY OF CONGRESS, not just the right, to consider and either authorize or disapprove ALL ACTS OF WAR ordered by the President.
  • Require each newly elected Congress to produce a SIX YEAR PLAN to BALANCE RECEIPTS AND EXPENDITURES of the national government,  including interest on the national debt. Provide that Congress may only suspend this requirement with 2/3 vote.

  • END GERRYMANDERING --real one person/one vote for representation in federal and state legislatures.
  • 55/45 RULES. REFORM the rules for both houses of CONGRESS providing that 45% can always bring an issue up for a vote and that no greater than 55% shall be required to pass any issue, except for those provided in the Constitution itself.
  • FURTHER DEMOCRATIZE THE SENATE (and thus the Electoral College) by adding a third Senator in each of the 10 largest states by population.
  • Provide that the SUPREME COURT shall always be 9 justices; that no vacancies may last greater than 120 days; and that Consent of the Senate for any new Supreme Court Justice must be at least 55%.
