Election 2012: Your stories
My Dream Act;
I have been listening to members of Congress and our President promotes their version of the Dream Act for immigrants and undocumented workers. Each wants to support student funding and create a road toward citizenship in some way, shape or form. This is where I have to stop at the Major Parties version, because it makes me sick.
I am a Vietnam era veteran, honorably discharged disabled, I have three sons whom I cannot get into college, granted, being divorced does complicate the process, but living on $ 900.00 a month should count for something.
My Dream Act is to serve Americans to where they can afford to ALLOW our President and Congress to help the free world. To help with a surplus created by low free market unemployment, not stimulus and thereby tax funds. Not by borrowing the US into poverty or giving to illegals that which an American is not entitled to because there is NO budget for it.
My Dream Act is to bring back jobs lost abroad, to enact tariffs that will allow American industries to compete in the global market and allow Americans to afford automobiles that are under environmental regulations. To standardize education and remove school boards and all the fringe benefits and high retirement plans that steal from our children. To create a preventive health care program for low income Americans that identify possible health issues and create an affordable road to better health one stage at a time, we do this with our health fairs, why not in normal practice.
My Dream Act is for government to serve the citizens of this country before all else except in disaster assistance and issues of genocide abroad. To demand low oil prices from countries that benefited from our support, loss of life and aid. To never hold an American to a different standard or double standard in regards to illegal immigrants. If Americans break the law we take responsibility and pay the price.
My Dream Act is for American families to NOT lose their homes to bad government regulations and Wall Street greed, to make foreclosures illegal for American families due to loss of employment of health issues, we must make both government and industry dig deeper for solutions, this will force the issue. To forgive bad credit do to these reasons also for family orientated Americans that will continue a certain quality of life in the home. Congress and our President should not promote family values if they do not intend to back them up with a plan to help. To require that disaster insurance claims be paid ASAP, and that civil action for fraud be contested after all is said and done.
My Dream Act is for our President and Congress to televise all committee meetings and discussions that affect the American people, except national security. It is high time for Americans to see how it is done. To create an ethics law that can remove members of Congress for bribery for votes, to stop the lobby and special interests. To create a rule that requires any riders on important bills to stand-alone or allow a line item veto by majority of the House, Senate or President. To create a voter poll on each Congressperson and Presidential website to determine if the American will is being done, to allow Americans to actually review if their representative needs to be replaced.
My Dream Act is for Congress to never tell me that they are making hard choices at our expense and that they are the wrong choices due to the principals of the representative themselves. To reset pay and benefits of government workers to a level equal to the median salary of the American worker. Government service is supposed to be a sacrifice, not a Dream job.
Finally, My Dream Act is to require all elected candidates to forsake their party while serving their nation, there is no longer room in our leadership for the party infighting we have seen for years and the magnitude of the chaos they impose on the American people.
No party candidate will represent the Constitution. http://before-its-too-late.webs.com/index.htm
