We write this correspondence mainly to the Blue Dog Democrats and the RINOs who are up for re-election in the Senate in 2012, you know who you are. But we also feel it necessary for all to see because as you now well know, nothing is impossible when decent people make their voices heard.
We are requesting and seriously suggesting you do NOT change the Senate rules on filibusters. It will do you no good because BS legislation you whip up will now fail in the House anyway. Not only that, you will be rewriting one of the unique and special safeguards designed to protect the people from a juggernaut government, like the one we just witnessed these past two years.
We need checks and balances, we need legislation to be well thought out and deliberate. We need government to move slowly, in order to preserve the republic from the irresponsible power hungry hacks we have seen over the years, both historically and recently. We do not need one party or another ramming crap down our throats. without some way to block it.
As we just witnessed in the last election, many elected officials can and will be defeated in any given election. We prefer that you do the jobs we sent you to do, but we are not beyond firing any of you, if you do not. The choice is yours, we will be watching closely and you will be hearing from us periodically.
If there are any questions as to whether or not you need to do something (or NOT do something) please refer to the U.S. Constitution. If it lines up with that document and there is still some question, contact your constituents anytime.
If you are not able to read, the House of Representatives will be reading the Constitution later today. If you are unable to catch it live on C-SPAN, we are sure you can catch it later on repeats and/or on the internet 24/7, on You Tube or the C-SPAN site.
Thank you in advance for your attention in this matter. We will be in touch.
The American People.
