VOICE: Do you want to stop playing a game? No more partisan politics. Just common sense. This is the 9/12 Project.
GLENN: The912project.com. I asked yesterday to please go on, and you'll see, and I want to change the name of this. Could you ask somebody, could you ask Michael to change the name of this on the button bar? Glenn's wish list? It shouldn't be Glenn's wish list. It should be America's wish list, your wish list. I want I asked you yesterday. I want you to come up with a list of things you want changed, a list of, you know, the contract for America. You know, let's stop waiting around for a party to do it. Let's do it ourselves and let's give them the list and say Democrats, Republicans, independents, who's going to run on this platform? Because soon we will have a million people. Right now we have 256,000 members of the 9/12 Project. We can get a lot more than that, and this will be your special interest group. It won't be controlled by me or a corporation or anybody else. It will be controlled by you. So the first step? You go to the912project.com, you become a member, and it's free and everything else. All you have to do is go to the wish list and type out what is it that you want and then I'm going to select them, narrow them down to maybe 50 of them, maybe 100 and we'll vote on them and we'll keep voting until we get them down to 10 and then we'll start there. What are these tea parties about in well, let's make these tea parties about something except just stop spending. Let's be specific. Let's be united. Let's let our voice be heard in one giant chorus. The912project.com. Here is just a couple of them. This one comes from Grace: I'm 15. Some may say I don't know much about this stuff but I do know that limiting terms and cutting their size down considerably will solve much of our problems. Greed for power and power itself is what corrupts. Cut their power supply and suddenly you get a better and cleaner politics. President Lincoln said power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. I believe that. So one thing for sure, cut the power and you cut the temptations of corruption more than in half. She's 15 and she does get it.
This comes from JDL: I'd like to see the president's term changed to one term of six years so they can work the whole time and not be campaigning through their first term.
Cooper says, don't allow those who have been in law or have a license to practice law to serve as a representative in the federal government. Lawyers have a conflict of interest when writing or determining the laws as they will. When done serving, they have a conflict of interest as they capitalize off the laws they make. Can I tell you something, Cooper? You go back and read Thomas Paine. This thing jumped out of the page to me. I've read this now I don't know how many times because I'm updating it for today's Common Sense and I was reading it last week and I saw in there he was selling our kind of government. I don't know how many times I read Thomas Paine's Common Sense. This time I read it and the answer screamed out at me and that was exactly what you said. He said, representative government is going to be perfect because these people are going to have to go back into their own communities and they are going to have to go back into business so they will never vote a rod against themselves. They will never vote a penalty against themselves. And it jumped out at me and I thought, oh, my gosh! How right he was. They haven't. Most of the people that are in congress have never run a business. They've never done anything like this and they don't fear about going back into business or the private sector. Most of them, 51 or 52, 52 of the senators are lawyers. That's why you don't get tort reform. That's why you don't get any laws changed or any rods against the legal system.
The other rod that they never seem to pass is a rod against lobbyists. Why is that? Because I contend a lot more of them, if they don't go into law, then you got the other section that goes into lobbyists. This is the problem. You are exactly right. Now, how do we solve it? You try to solve it at the912project.com. Give me your list. This is the next step. I want to know what you want.
