Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I am so thankful for my ability to give. I am also thankful to live in a country where we the people do have the power to make changes- if we just use it. So if you want to give something to our future as a country and to the future of the United States of America’s people– then sign the petition to use article 5 to call a constitutional convention to put into place 12 year term limits on the US Congress.
Don’t wait- take action now, and spread the word.
Let’s say more than thanks today, and do something we can be thankful for in the future.
If you support the idea of Term Limits for U.S. Congress or don’t– I’d love to see some comments with your reasons. If you have any questions about what we are trying to accomplish and why– please feel more than free to ask.
There are a few weeks left before we’ll be hitting the ground gathering signatures– so now is a great time to ask away.
There are always doubts when it comes to trying to make a big change like this… so no thought or question is too silly or unworthy of sharing.
“It will take a political metamorphosis, a populist renaissance, in America to reverse the political and economic tides… to make our country strong and whole again. The Toynbeean challenge we face requires a response from all of us, a rebirth of civic activism from average people at the grass roots as well as from America’s political and economic leaders. Millions of Americans will have to come off the sidelines and reengage in direct citizen action in order to reestablish “government of the people by the people, for the people” and to achieve a genuine people’s agenda in Washington” (Smith, xxv).
If we want change- we need to believe that we have the power to make that change happen. Together we can let those at the top feel our strength and our power.
Term Limits for U.S. Congress might be that grass roots movement that can start to make the changes we need. It’s nonpartisan- it’s about who has power and who should have power.
Please help us, join the cause.
I’m nervous about my part. I wonder if I’ll be able to do enough– yet, that isn’t going to stop me from trying. It’s time to stop complaining and start doing something about. Every little bit helps.
