Campaigns over, governing begins. This article describes why and how to convert the blizzards of sayings…into two first baby steps of DOING.

Now comes a Leadership, Accountability, and a Golden Rule Opportunity.
~Before holding others accountable, Federal and State government leaders set the example by first holding themselves accountable to the principles of ‘serving America’, ‘honesty’, and ‘equal opportunity’.

~Importance? Essential: without accountability; oaths, laws, and sayings simply provide more means to selfish and wrong ends.
~Since 1998, the official and prevailing social more has been that “lying, especially lying under oath while in office”, “does not rise to the level”. What level? Who knows. This is an inclusive and conclusive indicator that power to impose & manipulate has replaced the moral concept of accountability.
~So, until we stop lying about the essentials… we keep eating our young and our selves…faster.
~Also it suggests that these initial steps, while essential, are only minor in scope and only the first of many. For, what person ‘owns’ ‘honesty’?

Practical Situation.
~Fiscally, for several years, most American governments have been insolvent and stealing from future generations by schemes that are illegal for an individual or private organization.
~How have we been doing this to ourselves? Same old way: with one hand we have been blaming others, while with the other we’ve been getting ours from others.


FIRST STEP. Immediate Accountability “I’m Listening” Step. Who: Lame Duck Congress. When: as their direct to the floor for consideration, first order of business, and by the end of their first week after they return. What: Pass by unanimous roll call vote the following identical measure by itself so no Joint Confererence or legislative resolution is required before sending the measure to the President.

Present Federal Tax Law shall be frozen for all American citizens until the Congress authorizes and appropriates a balanced budget for an entire fiscal year, as certified by official CBO audit.

The President signs the bill into law the following day.

SECOND STEP. Initial Accountability Step. Who: Next Congress. When: January session, as first order of business in House and Senate. What: pass measure titled “Government Service Act of 2011“, as follows:
a. The spirit of this Act is to restore Government Service as first and foremost a service to the Nation. The measures herein are intended to foster service as a dedication of the legislator’s life, fortune, and sacred honor; rather than a career and self-entitlement to exceptional benefits.
b. Measures:
~Each State shall set the pay measures of Members of Congress from their State, to include prior authorization for any expenses. Neither Federal nor State Governmments shall provide any perks, benefits, indirect pays or allowances, insurance, health care, disability, or retirement benefits other than the pay expressly authorized herein.
~By FY2017, each State shall govern by law and assume all the expenses of operating all the staff, services, and state-located offices of each of its Members of Congress.
~Members of Congress shall seek and be elected by majority vote of their peers to offices within the Congress biennially, by merit, without regard to length of service.
~Congress shall immediately terminate its self-authorized, inequitable, unique compensation systems and transfer all Congressional Retirement Fund and Health Care assets to the Social Security Administration [SSA]. ~Social Security shall make no distinctions whatsoever between American citizens and Members of Congress past, present, and future. ~Congress shall append a Resolution in this Act deeming its authorization and operation of all such exceptional compensation systems, ‘unconstitutional’.
~Individual members of Congress will make such provisions for their Health Care, Insurance, and Retirement as each sees fit.
~Except for legal and security measures, Congress shall not except or exempt any, some, or all of its Members from a provision or law that applies to American citizens.

Accountability Prologue:
~These two measures are by no means perfect; each will cause turmoil and unintended consequences.
~That is because each of We The People must fight the good fight each day for our own honesty, in order to strive to exercise accountability. ~Accountability is the beginning of that purpose in the Preamble of our Constitution that has been supplanted from the beginning by men who ‘know better’: establish justice.

E Pluribus Unum.
