Our country, as a nation, has a major national disability and that disability is our government itself.

Congress is divided, which is fairly normal, but our two major political parties are now so politically hostile to once another that Congress is essentially dysfunctional in our need to manage our severe debt crisis.

Our "presidency" is a disgrace with Barack Obama, a weird suspicious character , who is not constitutionally eligible to be President, acting as President and threatening to establish new presidential powers to allow him to bypass an uncooperative Congress to do as he pleases.

As a Democrat in good standing however, he is protected by the party and much of the news media who simply ignore uncomplimentary comments about his past.

For example, up until the time that he ran for U.S. Senator from Illinois in 2004, he had said he was born in the British Protectorate of Kenya and there had been no questioning of his birth records or his place of birth!

There are two main problems causing Congress to become dysfunctional and a major disability in making law:

1. Congress uses a simple majority rule in passing bills and this allows it to make many controversial laws, a controversial law being one which is approved by only a slight majority such as 50,5%.

People generally agree that most bills show not be passed using the simple majority rule and that bills proposing a law should not be passed with an approval rating of less than 60% and some proposed laws should be required to have an approval rating of 70% or higher!

2. Our two major political parties love the simple majority as it allows the party with of the members of a law-making body (House of Senate) to control the law-making of that body for at least the next two years.

Political party control of the House and/or Senate has led to extreme measures being taken by one party (like Obamacare), or not taken to correct a Social Security design fault that has been ignored for decades, or not taken to privatize or or simplify our mail service as it has become a junk mail system!

We need to abolish political party control of Congress!

In 2008, the Senate formally examined Republican Senator McCain's eligibility to be elected President and said he was eligible being a natural born citizen, with the basis being that he was born of American citizens and born in the United States or on a United States Military Base.

It is difficult to comprehend why the Senate did not also examine Barack Obama's eligibility to be elected President it was well known that his father was a British citizen and therefore Barack Obama was not eligible!

Could it have been because the Senate was controlled by the Democratic Party?

We definitely need to have a Constitutional Convention called by Congress upon the formal request of a least 33 of the States, for proposing amendments to the Constitution.

When a Constitutional is convened we need to address our two main problems discussed above by:

1. Replacing the simple majority rule with a more sensible set of rules.

2.Abolishing all partisan political activity within Congress and make all Congressional Members responsible exclusively to their constitution's keeping them well informed of all Congressional activity.

There is something else that we urgently need to do and that is to force recognition of the issue that Barack Obama is deliberately interfering in the treasonous and treacherous ways to keep us from recovering from all the damage he has done to our country in the last 4 years.

We need Obama to not only step aside and let Congress and the people recover from his ugly interference as an imposter, but also to run away as we also need to investigate his law breaking ways in producing the fake long form Certificate to Live Birth that he used to claim he was really born in Hawaii!

We must force the issue in any and every way we can.

We must urge our members of Congress to activate a sit-down strike and to take sides while they can and avoid being a misidentified as friend or foe.
