I was asked
to pass this on and I will gladly do so!! Will
No one has been able to explain to
me why young men and women serve in the
U.S. Military for
20 years, risking their lives protecting freedom, and only
50% of their pay on retirement. While Politicians hold
their political positions
In the safe confines of the
capital, protected by these same men and women, and
full-pay retirement after serving one term. It just does not
make any sense.
If each person who receives this
will forward it on to 20 people, in three days, most people in
The United States of America will have the message. This is
one proposal that really should be passed
Proposed 28th Amendment to the United
States Constitution: "Congress shall make no law that applies
to the citizens of the United States that does not apply
equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress
shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or
Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of
the United States."
You are one of my 20+. I
passed it on, will you?
"If you choose not to decide, you
still have made a choice," and these brave soldiers have given
you that right!!
