From the Desk of: S King
The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds) took only 3 months and 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. Thus:

The 28th Amendment or more known as: The Congressional Reform Act of 2011

1. Term Limits.

    12 years only, one of the possible options below.

    a. Two Six-year Senate terms
    b. Six Two-year House terms
    c. One Six-year Senate term and three Two-Year House terms

2. No Tenure / No Pension.

    a.  Congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are out of office.

3. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security.

    a.  All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately.
    b.  All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people.

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

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

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

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

8. All contracts with past and present Congressmen are void effective 1/1/12.

    a.  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.

The Gunny WHOLEHEARTEDLY agree with the above idea from S. King who emailed this plan to the Gunny. Here are the Gunny's amendments to the above plan:

1.  ALL serving Senators and Congressmen/women SHALL live on Ft McNair in the barracks to reduce any and all costs to the taxpayers.

2.  ALL serving Senators and Congressmen/women eat in the chow hall, on a meal card, just like the troops do. If it is good enough for me, it is good enough for thee! Lunch, unless they pay for it out of their own pockets, will be a box lunch from the chow hall.

3.  ALL serving Senators/Congressmen/women SHALL travel to/from their respective offices via the Metro from Ft McNair to DC. This simplifies security and lowers the cost of Congress using luxury vehicles ala Charlie Rangel and his taxpayer funded Cadillac.

4.  ALL serving Senators/Congressmen/women SHALL go to sick call during their time in session at Fort McNair UNLESS they pay for private medical care out of their own pocket. This applies to dental as well.

5.  ALL serving Senators/Congressmen/women SHALL travel via COMMERCIAL air ONLY, in economy, on AUTHORIZED missions ONLY, just like the rest of the government employees have to do UNLESS they fund their travel from their own pocket. If so, NO reimbursement is authorized for any reason.

6.  Under NO circumstances will ANY serving Senator/Congressmen/women engage in diplomatic missions, ala Hanoi John Fonda Kerry and the Paris Peace talks, Iraq peace talks, Afghanistan, etc. ANY violations will result in immediately charges under the Logan Act and removal from office.

7.  Congress SHALL ONLY be in session for 180 days UNLESS there is a declared national emergency. Otherwise, they shall work out of the offices located within their states and be available to their constituents during normal duty hours.

8.  ALL staff will be paid for at a GS level not to exceed GS 7 and no more than 4 staff members per Sen/Cong. All staff WILL reside in the barracks at Fort McNair during sessions.

9.  ALL elected officials from the Senate and Congress, along with their staff, WILL have an SSBI background investigation AND urinalysis tests at random intervals. Again, what is good for ME, is good for THEE!

10.  ALL elected officials, upon any misconduct, of any type, no matter how minor, SHALL immediately be removed from office and charged under the laws of the United States and the State they are from WILL appoint a replacement from the same party.  


ANY elected official who elects to run for HIGHER office SHALL immediately resign his/her current position and the State from which they are from SHALL appoint someone from the same party to take their place.


  1. I've posted my thoughts on the new American Constitution I would add that the preSident only makes 50,000 a year. It is an office of a public service and should be paid accordingly.

  2. I've got the email more than once Gunny. A big plus and two thumbs up for your additions.

  3. Draconian
    Simply draconian.

    I love it.

  4. For those of you that don't think the w@r has started yet read this and pay attention to what's being said by these "anonymous" informants.

    Gunny hope you don't mind me linking in here but this needs to be spread. Here's a little tidbit from the article.
    "It rated right up there with it(Iraq). When I saw the amount of kids coming down the road I thought 'Theres not enough cops to handle this. There's no way. It would have taken the NATIONAL GUARD."
    These riots are being set up by the libs I believe it is so that they CAN bring in the Guard. Install marshal law. A good way to silently start the domestic invasion by our own government. Guard yourself, be prepared. And on a side note these are only taking place in cities with strict gun laws.

    "I will gladly go to war with my government to save my country"-me

  5. Gunny, I have been arguing for the same thing, as far as term limits go.. for 12 years. I think another of the changes should be that the House is elected to either 3 or 4 year terms because as it stands right now they serve for one year and campaign for the next; it's ridiculous.

  6. Also, I make this argument ALL THE TIME but this is so well-written that I am going to copy it VERBATIM and send to my Representative & both Senators right away.

  7. NAR,

    Agreed. He gets a pension, free med/den, and security for life. 50Gs a year is sufficient.

  8. Buck,

    Thanks. They have been playing fast and loose for decades, time to play tighten up! This way, we'll get people who WANT TO SERVE America, not rape America.

  9. Sgt R,

    Thanks. Feel free to print it out and distribute it to anyone and everyone. Let's hammer the crap out of them all in 2012 and take back the government. WE make the rules, not them.

  10. Rich the Mechanic from Los Angeles here...

    I'm in and I vote. It's time the congress (no capitalizations for ANY politicians) live up to the original intention of the Founding Father's and WE THE PEOPLE make political service exactley what it was intended to be - service and not a lifetime career.

  11. Just another racist asshole in a uniform

  12. What did the guys at Ft. McNair ever do to you, that you'd wish this on them?

  13. Technomad,

    You're right there. Maybe we need to construct a new compound in a sh*tty area of DC as to provide jobs for the people there, with Congress/Senate living in barracks, eating in the chowhall, etc.
