Is Washington Broken?

UPDATE!!!! 10/28/2014
If you made it this far after reading or hearing Greg’s distortions and smears I would like to say thanks for being willing to investigate for yourself. This site was created several years ago as a result of discussions among a number of people across the country. Not every idea is mine. I compiled suggestions from at least a dozen different people.

For Greg to pretend any different is an example of his inability to remain truthful. Consider at the bottom of the resolution page is, and always has been, an attribution to some of those sources.

With many campaigns under his belt Greg has only one strategy for winning. Lie about or smear his opponent and hope it gets him through another election. Note also that Greg’s entire campaign is and has been devoid of ANY ideas on how we get out of this mess.

The truth is pretty simple. Nobody thinks the editor of the Gazette holds every opinion that appears on his editorial pages. Many days both conservative and liberal opinions appear on those pages and everybody understands the editor has his own separate opinions.

I am the editor of this website.

The Articles in the resolution were suggested by people who, like most Americans, are concerned about where our country is going and were meant to start a discussion about how we get things back on track. I compiled the suggestions and placed them on this site.

My suggestion is to read on and offer your own ideas and feedback. BUT don’t let Greg win another election based on lies and distortions.

Thank you

Robert Karnes

When people say Washington is broken, it’s true.

The House, the Senate, the White House fumble all over themselves jockeying for political position. None of them care about the damage being done to the nation, none recognize the writing on the wall. We are broke and they won’t stop spending. Our economy is taxed and regulated nigh unto death and they pass laws and foment regulations that tighten the noose. Boehner fiddles while Obama burns us. Meanwhile, McConnell and Reid and the do nothings in the Senate sit back and watch.

More than 70% of our new Tea Party representatives voted to increase the debt ceiling without demanding ANY significant concessions on spending or taxes.

The debt is now more than $1617,000,000,000,000 and officially surpasses GDP.

Clearly, Washington will NEVER fix Washington.

Nor will Washington propose amendments to rein in this federal gluttony.

We desperately need a Balanced Budget Amendment, a complete overhaul of the tax structure, a way for states to hold Washington accountable fiscally and constitutionally.

Only an Article V Convention of the states can bring this about.

The Congress, whenever two thirds of both Houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose Amendments to this Constitution, or, on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments, which, in either Case, shall be valid to all Intents and Purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the Legislatures of three fourths of the several States, or by Conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other Mode of Ratification may be proposed by the Congress; Provided that no Amendment which may be made prior to the Year One thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any Manner affect the first and fourth Clauses in the Ninth Section of the first Article; and that no State, without its Consent, shall be deprived of its equal Suffrage in the Senate.

It is time to make Washington behave.

It starts with the Resolution.
