New Rules for Politicians…a rough draft.

Here are some of the new rules for politicians (that I’ve come up with), which each states constituents (legal citizens with the ability to vote) will need to implement within their state, in order to save our country before the politicians line us up for a war on our own soil. You will need to work these to suit your state. These rules are not necessarily in any specific order.
*The terms Shall and Shall Not are the strictest terms stating the mandatory following of the United States laws and measures.

1. All laws and rules created for each state and our country, Shall be followed by All politicians and are punishable according to the law as it pertains to the rest of the citizens, as they apply in this state.
2. The President Shall be re-elected on the merit of his or her past performance. They Shall Not be allowed to campaign in this state unless they are on annual leave, which will be limited to 30 days, and leave used for campaigning Shall Not be carried over from previous years for the purpose of campaigning.
3. The President Shall become party-less upon taking oath of office, and Shall Not belong to any political party or group specifically for any reason.
4. The President, members of the House of Representatives, and members of the Senate shall follow the same laws pertaining to Insider Trading as all other citizens within the United States, and Shall Not create laws or any other form of rule that will protect themselves from the people of their state/country.
5. If the citizens of a state choose to create laws to restrict politicians and their personal agenda within the job, they shall be able to follow the laws to place a measure on the ballot without the approval of a politician to place it there.
6. The State Politicians Shall Not receive retirement or retirement benefits without following the rules that apply to the lowest paid state employee (ie. in North Dakota, there is a rule of 85 that applies to all employees that wish to retire).
7. Politicians Shall not be allowed to give themselves a pay raise or additional benefits, other than that which the average state employee receives without a vote by the constituents.
8. A Politician Shall Not earn a wage of more than 10% above the next lowest state employee, or 10 times the lowest paid employee within the state, whichever is lower.
9. The taxpayers Shall Not pay for fees or security of more than two homes (excluding three apartments used in the carrying out of any politicians duties at a maximum of 1000 square feet each ) equaling 5,000 square feet total, which includes the Presidents private home(s). (If John Kerry would have won the Presidential Election, we would have been stuck with a minimum of Seven Mansions and the security of those mansions for the rest of his life).
This is a rough draft of new possible rules as I thought of them over the last 45 minutes. Feel free to comment with additions that you would like to see, and I will comment back with pluses and minuses that I see with your thoughts. Don’t necessarily take a minus as a bad thing, but be prepared to back up your thoughts or counter my arguments. Follow this for further additions.

  3. Since then, campaign finance limitations continue to be challenged in the Courts. In 2005 in Washington state, Thurston County Judge Christopher Wickham ruled that media articles and segments were considered in-kind contributions under state law. The heart of the matter focused on the I-912 campaign to repeal a fuel tax, and specifically two broadcasters for Seattle conservative talker KVI. Judge Wickham’s ruling was eventually overturned on appeal in April 2007, with the Washington Supreme Court holding that on-air commentary was not covered by the State’s campaign finance laws (No New Gas Tax v. San Juan County).

  4. Some countries rely heavily on private donors to finance political campaigns. In these countries, fundraising is often a significant activity for the campaign staff and the candidate, especially in larger and more prominent campaigns. For example, one survey in the United States found that 23% of candidates for statewide office surveyed say that they spent more than half of their scheduled time raising money. Over half of all candidates surveyed spent at least 1/4 of their time on fundraising.

      Donors should be limited to individual taxpayers, and should have a donation limit at best. Corporations donate so that they will squash the opinions of the people of our nation. Our Preamble to the Constitution says “We The People Of The United States Of America” not we the corporations or companies of the United States. The Constitution was created to protect the people, not big business.

  5. Rachelle R. Spence says:

    The person having the greatest Number of votes for President, shall be the President, if such number be a majority of the whole number of Electors appointed; and if no person have such majority, then from the persons having the highest numbers not exceeding three on the list of those voted for as President, the House of Representatives shall choose immediately, by ballot, the President. But in choosing the President, the votes shall be taken by states, the representation from each state having one vote; a quorum for this purpose shall consist of a member or members from two-thirds of the states, and a majority of all the states shall be necessary to a choice. And if the House of Representatives shall not choose a President whenever the right of choice shall devolve upon them, before the fourth day of March next following, then the Vice-President shall act as President, as in the case of the death or other constitutional disability of the President.

      You talk like a lawyer, and that is the last thing that our nation needs…more lawyers and politicians making things ‘Transparent’ so that the people can’t see what they are doing.
