·         Don't take freedom of religion for granted.

·         Don't take the right to trial by jury for granted.

Feds-Slam-Brakes-On-Copper-Nickel-Mine-Near-Boundary-Waters The Republican Party of Minnesota Chairman Keith Downey released the following statement regarding the Obama Administration's recent move to kill the Twin Metal mining project and effectively end mining in the Iron Range by prohibiting all future leases. "In a cruel attack on Iron Range families right before Christmas, Democrats effectively killed the Twin Metals' mining project today and likely all future mining with an order from the Obama administration. The Democrats' cynical and pathetic show of rejecting the "kill mining" Resolution 54 at their State Central Committee meeting last Saturday is the absolute worst of politics.  Shamefully, Mark Dayton, Rick Nolan and Amy Klobuchar claim to support mining, all the while they must have known that this order was coming. It is no coincidence that this order effectively accomplishes the intentions of Resolution 54. The order requires that equipment must be removed from the site and all activity shut down. We'll say it again, watch what Democrats do, not what they say, when it comes to killing mining and destroying the economy of Northeastern Minnesota."

The Buffett Rule has been floating around the Internet for a while, but it’s well worth reading:

  • Salary of retired US Presidents       $180,000 FOR LIFE.

·         Salary of House/Senate members        $174,000 FOR LIFE. Why?

·         Salary of Speaker of the House      $223,500 FOR LIFE. More MONEY than the President gets.

·         Salary of Majority / Minority Leaders      $193,400 FOR LIFE. Nice work if you can get it.

·         Average Salary of a teacher     $40,065

·         Average Salary of a deployed Soldier       $38,000.

   Here’s where the cuts should be made!  Warren Buffett, in an interview with CNBC, offers one of the best quotes about the debt ceiling: "I could end the deficit in five minutes. You just pass a law that says that anytime there is a deficit of more than 3% of GDP, all sitting members of Congress are ineligible for re-election".

      The 26th Amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds) took only three months and eight days to be ratified! Why? Simple! The people demanded it. That was in 1971 - before computers, e-mail, cell phones, etc.

     Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took one (1) year or less to become the law of the land - all because of public pressure.

Congressional Reform Act of 2017

1. No Tenure / No Pension. A Congressman /woman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they're out of office.

2. Congress (past, present, & future) participates in Social Security. All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people. It may not be used for any other purpose.

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

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

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

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

7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen/women are void effective 3/1/17. The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen/women.

Congress 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 go back to work. If each person contacts a minimum of 20 people, then it will only take three days for most people in the U.S. to receive the message. It's time!
