1. Get Our Government under control

We the People need to take our government back.

We need to put a halt to congress or any elected official to be able to set their own wages and retirements AND we need to re-do their entire wage and benifit package that should be finalized by a Nation wide vote.

2. I Support Honesty in Government and the rights we were granted under the Constitution and Bill of Rights

Our forefathers established this country with a Constitution and Bill of Rights that are supposed to provide us with fundamental rights. Every candidate for political office, every elected official, and every government employee should be willing to commit in writing to always defend our fundamental rights. Sadly, many do not -- people in all parties and people in no parties.

GRIP, the Government Reform & Integrity Platform, is a non-partisan coalition of organizations and people who simply seek honesty and our fundamental rights from government. This all that we stand for, and getting signatures from our fellow Americans will be used to send a message to every candidate, elected official, and government employee.

GRIP is also asking every candidate to sign a contract, and we ask every American voter to vote only for candidates who sign the Contract agreeing to always be honest and protect our fundamental rights.

We ask you to vote only for people who say they will be honest and remain accountable - regardless of party. Dishonesty is the fundamental problem with government today. We must all do something about it, and signing this petiiton is quick, easy, and important.

3. Political Candidate Contract with the Citizens of the United States

Every candidate for political office, every elected official, and every government employee should be willing to commit in writing to always be honest.

Our forefathers established this country with a Constitution and Bill of Rights that are supposed to provide us with fundamental rights. Every candidate for political office, every elected official, and every government employee should be willing to commit in writing to always defend our fundamental rights.

This is what this petition provides. GRIP, the Government Reform & Integrity Platform, is a non-partisan coalition of organizations and people who simply seek honesty and our fundamental rights from government. This all that we stand for, and getting signatures on this petition is our mission.

Everyone should be willing to sign this petition, but dishonest candidates and government officials will be unwilling to sign because the contract provides that they may be removed from office if they violate the petition contract.

GRIP will ask every American voter to vote only for candidates who sign this Contract. Platform First - Party Second. Let's vote only for people who say they will be honest and remain accountable - regardless of party. Dishonesty is the fundamental problem with government today. This Contract can make a difference.

4. Move Elected Officials Home

When our government was set up we did not have the communications we have today. Back then it was necessary to have all Congressmen, Senators and President in Washington to be effective. Today, in 2010 we have all these modern communications tools; there is no need for everyone to be located in Washington DC. We can save millions by eliminating the office staff plus transportation of the speaker of the house every week going home.

There are three big benefits of this move:

FIRST are the costs of transporting the Congress back and forth to Washington DC.

SECOND, should be to exploit the need for the interaction between the elected official and the constituency. This would preclude the making of back room deals such as the cork husker deal, which was made to get Obama care passed.

THIRD, would be the loss of control of such groups of lobbyists, PACs and other special interest groups which get too much of our elected officials time.
The benefit to each district, more face time with your government officials, large staff in the home state, transportation, temporary housing, office space, limo services, and expenses associated with having the lobbyist, PAC and special interest groups coming to each home district to meet with the government. This would spur the economy in each district.

ADDITIONAL COSTS: there will be minimal costs in that each member all ready has one and two offices in their districts. The only costs would be to set up the communication equipment when they take office. This is being done now when a new official is elected.
