How to Fix Congress

Earlier this week, I figured out how to ‘fix’ Congress! Here’s my simple three-step plan, to end the nonsense in Congress, and immediately weed out the chaff:

  1. No more digital documents (i.e. proposed legislation) introduced in the House or Senate. In other words, all new bills are hand-written!
  2. No more prepared remarks, unless hand-written, and prepared by Congressional member personally, in their own handwriting!
  3. Before every major election (e.g. every two years) all voters must watch C-SPAN for at least 30 (preferrably 60) days prior to election day. Time watched is not regulated except that C-SPAN watching must equal or exceed all other TV watched (e.g. watching a 2-hr movie = watching at least 2 hrs of C-SPAN).

This, in my humble apprehension, would immediately cure a multitude of evils… The Senator Ron Johnsons and Josh Hawleys of the country would undoubtedly be celebrated as the champions of liberty they are. But the puppet masters would never allow this, since their (Schumer / Pelosi et al) puppets would all immediately be exposed for the frauds they are…

…you must remember, my fellow-citizens, that eternal vigilance by the people is the price of liberty, and that you must pay the price if you wish to secure the blessing. It behooves you, therefore, to be watchful in your States as well as in the Federal Government. … The mischief springs from the power which the moneyed interest derives from a paper currency which they are able to control, from the multitude of corporations with exclusive privileges which they have succeeded in obtaining in the different States, and which are employed altogether for their benefit; and unless you become more watchful in your States and check this spirit of monopoly and thirst for exclusive privileges you will in the end find that the most important powers of Government have been given or bartered away, and the control over your dearest interests has passed into the hands of these corporations.
