    This is GREAT !!!!!

    The way to get this to work is to spread it around . . . AND make it simple for The People to get behind it. In other words, there needs to be an easy, practical way for the average person to do their part in making the Congressional Reform Act a reality. For starters, I suggest the the following:
    1. Vote out ALL Incumbents

    2. Only Vote in Candidates who promise to vote for the Congressional Reform Act after being elected, under threat of being voted out next term if they break their word.
    There needs to be a way for all citizens to endorse the Congressional Reform Act. The sign-up database needs to be publicly accessible and signable on the Internet, with the number signed up visible with a constantly updating tally (like the National Debt billboard). Who here would not take one minute to go to such a website and sign the petition?

    Right now, ideas are being spread around, with no easy way for the People to put these ideas into action, or to see the results in a self-reinforcing way.

    As the number of sign-ups grow, public awareness will grow, and future candidates will realize that they will have to follow the People's Will, not that of the Financial Elite and their own self-serving interests. Candidates will pop up everywhere who will promise to endorse the Congressional Reform Act, giving the People a real choice at election time.

    What needs to happen is for some really rich person who cares about people and the future of America to get behind this and bankroll the website. That's more likely to happen as the movement shows some growth at the grassroots level . . . so

    SPREAD THE WORD !!!!

    Also, I think it should be simply entitled The Congressional Reform Act, because there's no way it will be enacted in 2009.
