Kevin John started this petition to United States Supreme Court

Preamble to the United States Constitution

"We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this constitution for the United States of America."

Unfortunately, we the people are no longer served by our elected officials, instead we are sheep being led by politicians who serve themselves and special interest groups. The United States government is overdue to be restructured in order to remove career politicians, restore power to the people and get our elected officials back to doing the people's work rather than fulfilling their self interests.

Amending the constitution to change term limits in not a new concept and has proposed before, most noteably in 1995 when Senate Joint resolution 21 placed before congress. Unfortunately, the process must start with a 2/3 majority vote in both the House of Representatives and the Senate before it can be sent to the states for ratification.

Nevertheless,  this petition suggests the following for modification of representative terms and election reform:

  • United States Senate will be limited to two six year terms
  • House of Representative terms will change from two to three years and will be limited to four terms
  • The United States President term will change from four to five years and the term limit will remain at two
  • Election campaigning will begin no earlier than six months prior to election day
  • Campaign funding caps will be established to prevent buying elections and level the campaign for all candidates
