Campaign for Representation
Governments derive their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed.
Governments should not be changed for minor and temporary causes but when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce the rights of the people, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off Representatives, and to provide new guards for their future security.
The History of the present Congress of the United States is a history of repeated Injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over the people.
Whereas the approval rating of our Representatives has been around thirty per cent for years we must conclude that they have chosen to represent only thirty percent of the people. The majority of the people are left with no representation.
Our representatives have refused to listen to our grievances:
They have limited the use of our natural resources by prohibiting drilling for oil.
They forced us to convert our farms and destroy our forests to grow corn for ethanol.
They made development of nuclear energy impossible through regulations.
They have reduced our income from oil and wheat exportation.
They promote the use of wind and solar power while our enemies use coal and oil.
They are recommending the use of light bulbs that contain deadly mercury.
They are forbidding dams and irrigation claiming that rare fish might die.
They have declared war on Wall Street thereby destroying thousands of jobs.
They are squandering our monies on fabricated causes.
They have forced unpaid mandates on already strapped states.
They have turned the war on terror into a political side show.
For threatening to and altering fundamentally the forms of our government.
For attempting to put global governance over our sovereignty.
For weakening the security of our country by abandoning missile defense
For weakening the security by leaving us dependent on our enemies for oil.
For declaring that they have the right and the power to legislate for all of us in all cases..
For refusing to hear opposing findings on global warming.
For threatening to abolish our most valuable laws and depriving us of freedoms.
For usurping the rights of States and the inalienable rights of people.
For deciding matters that affect life, liberty and pursuit of happiness at secret meetings.
For labeling all who oppose Congress or the Senate as "anti Obama"
For intimidating all who uphold the Constitution by calling them obstructionists, radicals and fanatics.
In every stage of these oppressions we have asked to be heard in the most humble terms. Our repeated requests have been answered only by repeated injury. A Congress, whose character and every act which may define a tyrant is unfit to be the ruler of free people.
Being members of the majority we therefore demand:
Elected representatives shall have limited terms.
Representatives we elect and hire to uphold the law must abide by the law or face termination.
Taxation shall be limited to taxes that were levied in 2008.
No punitive taxes will be allowed. No new taxes shall be levied.
Earmarks shall not be added during the conference phase.
All states, people and groups of people shall be treated equal.
We pledge to stand united and rid our government of representatives who do not represent us.

The amount of energy emitted by the sun in just one hour is equal to the amount used by the entire world in a whole year? Solio™, a universal hybrid charger, uses this incredible solar power to charge just about any handheld electronic device, anywhere under the sun.
