URGENT ACTION FOR WEDNESDAY: USA: The 28th Amendment to help protect the People & Congress from Corruption

PLEASE SEE THIS VIDEO FOR AN INTRODUCTION:

here

PLEASE ACT RIGHT AWAY - WEDNESDAY IS THE DAY - THEN FOLLOW THIS BILL TO IT'S COMPLETION.

This Action is - in brief - about cutting down on corruption, wrong-using of using money for "replacement Senators" who were NOT chosen "by the people". Although Sen. Feingold's state already has precautions in place, many states do not. This is a call for a National Amendment. ALSO be sure to see the video here with Feingold: Restoring the Rule of Law!

US CITIZENS: Stand with Russ! Help build support for the 28th Amendment. Add your name as a Citizen Co-Sponsor Today! Sign on as a Citizen Co-Sponsor. WEDNESDAY - the Senate and House Judiciary Committees will hold a rare joint hearing on Feingold's proposed amendment to the Constitution.

Senator Russ Feingold says:
This is a positive development, but we still have some work to do: convincing legislators to support the amendment. That's why I need your help. My amendment gives the power of directly electing U.S. senators when a vacancy arises to the people of each state. I'm asking you to sign on as a citizen co-sponsor, adding your voice in support of what I hope will become the 28th Amendment.Help me build support for the 28th Amendment - Add your name as a Citizen Co-Sponsor today!Here in Wisconsin, where "Fighting" Bob La Follette led the charge to amend the Constitution for direct election of senators, we've always had a law on the books requiring a special election when a vacancy arises. And in the House, special elections are a constitutional requirement.

The 28th Amendment would take the power out of the hands of one, and give it to the American people. Help me build support for the 28th Amendment - Add your name as a Citizen Co-Sponsor today! I look forward to tomorrow's unprecedented hearing. It's the next step in a lengthy, but worthwhile effort. Thank you so much for your help on this. I'll be sure to keep you updated on our progress.

Sincerely,Russ Signature
United States Senator

The above is about what is taking place right now, 10 AM EST Wednesday, March 10th in the Senate and House Judiciary Committees on Amendment # 28 perhaps those who are willing to act on this crucial campaign are also willing to act on the Israeli-Palestinian peace support for George Mitchell and the recommended freeze on destruction of Palestinian homes (see above next blog).

Meantime, please call your US legsislators now to recommend amendment # 28 (SJ Res. 7 and HJ Res. 21), co-sign the item just below & follow it to it's proper course & also help get out the word - and media coverage.
