Members of Congress must proudly display the brand trademark of any corporation that donates more than $999 to their campaign fund. The larger the donation the bigger the font. Any donation over $5000 has to be large enough to be read by a camera while filming their talking head.

The largest sponsors get marquee position over their heart. The next largest on their hat. If no room is left down their arms, then patches can run down each leg.

Some Congress members may have to get creative because of lack of space, and paint the bottoms of their shoes. Apropos for treading over their constituents because they are bought and paid for by the people they are supposed to be regulating.

Some of you may think this is a joke. It's not. Elected officials and candidates would have to wear this clothing at official campaign events and while Congress is in session.

This goes for Presidential candidates, too.

We dare pairs of Democrats and Republicans to enter this bill into both chambers and co-sponsor the legislation. Let's put this nonsense behind us. And we're not talking about this Act.

Op-ed Guidelines
Please bring up points that were missed, elaborate on issues not fleshed out, add ways to make the idea/bill better, suggest a companion for GREATER Raters to consider. Please check your facts, grammar, syntax, punctuation, credit sources and quotes, and keep it under 500 words unless you absolutely cannot—then never more than 700 words. Please keep your criticism constructive. We will likely not print destructive criticism although a well written partisan rant bringing up new issues in the idea/bill or previous Op-eds may be accepted if it ends on a constructive note—especially if it offers an alternative idea/bill.

Shorter "letters" are encouraged that bring a new facet to the subject. The intent of the Op-eds is to fully cover the issue for the kind reader to consider before rating, and not waste their time with redundancy or the dreaded—"people-screaming-at-one-another-while-wearing-earplugs-syndrome." Think of the idea/bill as the base with the Op-eds stacked on top to form a structurally sound argument. The goal here is to have a GREATER US for the greatest number of citizens/neighbors. We may publish your piece without notice—so please only submit completed articles. We may, also, contact you for a rewrite or edit. We might even offer suggestions. It is our intention to fairly present the views of fiscal conservatives, independents, and social liberals—to find the overlap of whole-hearted support (nonpartisan) plus the commonality of the "I-can-live-with-that" (bipartisan).
