Repeal the Patriot Act

The citizenry cannot genuinely contribute to government discourse when they live in the shadow of fear and oppression. Laws and statutes such as the Patriot Act allow the government to move in silence and darkness, diminishing accountability and leaving the people in a state of fear. American federal government is not based on the premise of oppression, it is based off of liberation and personal accountability. Wiretaps, ...more »

Require all laws be read aloud in congress and posted on youtube

I think all laws should be read out loud in the debates and then voted on. Also I think a copy the summary should be mailed to every voter. With a ballot attached. If in 60 days of passage the public says no it is defeated. Because the current system does not represent the majority of the common people.

How about Congress stops piggybacking bills

The Credit card bill passed last week ALSO contained the right to carry firearms in National parks. WTF? I though the President was not going to sign laws that contained nonsense strapped along to it. This is not the CHANGE i voted for.
