What I Want to Do:


 
Read The Bills Act & Write The Laws Act
Read The Bills Act
Congress passes new laws nearly every week. Many of them are huge. Few of them are ever read. No one in Congress really knows what they contain. Sometimes these laws are not even printed before a vote is held. They are often written by lobbyists or staffers, and not by the people we elected. Sometimes they have secret provisions stuck in them at the last moment.

You have to pay for these laws, and live under them. Ignorance of the law is no excuse for you. Only the lawmakers can get away with not knowing what a law contains. THIS HAS TO STOP!

RTBA is a powerful tool for restoring responsible government. You have the power to make Congress pass RTBA.  No one in Congress wants to claim they shouldn't read the laws they pass. Apply pressure on them and they will eventually crack.

Write The Laws Act
You loan your car to a friend, and the friend loans it to someone else. Are you okay with that?

Congress does something similar . . .

The people gave Congress the power to write our laws. Congress has loaned that power to un-elected bureaucrats. Each year bureaucrats issue tens-of-thousands of dictates. None of these rules are written by Congress, read by Congress, debated by Congress, or voted on by Congress. Are you okay with that?

We grant judges and juries the power to decide guilt and render punishments. But Congress has loaned bureaucrats this power too. Groups of unelected bureaucrats serve the combined role of legislators, police, judges, juries, and punishers. Are you okay with that?

Congress claims it needs experts to write the rules. We agree that Congress lacks expertise, but this is no excuse for delegating its responsibilities. Congress can hire whatever expertise it lacks, but it still has an obligation to write the rules, read the rules, debate the rules, and vote the rules into law.

Congress fails to write all the rules we must obey for the same reason it fails to read any of the laws it passes. If Congress actually had to do its job there's no way it could make government grow so fast. Congress couldn't spend so much money, reward so many friends, punish so many enemies, and control so much of your life.

That's why DownsizeDC.org has written the "Write the Laws Act," as a companion bill to its "Read the Bills Act." WTLA requires that . . .

* Congress write specific legislation, with no details left to the bureaucrats.
* All allegations of wrong-doing be tried in Judicial Branch courts, not by bureaucrats.
* All punishments be rendered by judges, not bureaucrats.
* Executive Branch agencies be limited to investigation and prosecution.
* Citizens be held blameless against any government actions that violate these rules.
* Previous legislation granting legislative and judicial power to bureaucrats be identified so it can be repealed.

Should Congress write all the rules you must obey? If so, send Congress a message instructing them to introduce WTLA and pass it into law. You can do so by going to http://action.downsizedc.org/wyc.php?cid=51

Wild Fact About Me I'm looking for realtime relationship... A friend to spend time with. I'm not interested in marriage or taking care of anyone (or being taken care of either). I would just like someone to share life with. There are so many things I want to do, but they aren't fun alone...
My Philosophy 'I can manage it,' said Frodo. I must.' This is how I survive from day to day. I MUST DO IT.
What Gives Me Hope That people will some day realize that the Golden Rule could change the world. People would stop hurting and killing each other and hurting and killing animals because of the simple reflection of "Would I want this done to me?"
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Take care of the environment! The world is in crisis!
What/who changed my life and why LOTR. Reading these books in 1967 opened a whole new world of fantasy to me.
What Bugs Me rudeness, mean angry people, insensitivity, cruelty to animals and people  
Passions LIFE  
Inspirations that things can change for the better  
What Scares Me the direction the world is going
