    Apparently the founding fathers made an assumption that the leaders of our republic would show restraint with their spending and no balanced budget amendment would be necessary. Unfortunately their assumption was flawed. We have now spend ourselves into near disaster and the president seem reluctant to curb the spending. It is time to take a grip on our federal government and bring it back into financial balance. No more spending the SS funds for turtle bridges, etc. No more meeting the demands of lobbyistst with the taxpayers money for campaign donations for your coffers. Itis time to take an austere look at ourcumstances and forget about tap dancing around to try and get re-elected. Grow up Washington and face reality. We are on a precipice of financial ruin and your re-election is not on our minds. What do you intend to do to save the republic?

    Advising my state politicians on federal issues would probably be as productive as advising my Federal officials on this subject.

    I think all States are constitutionally (State Constitution) required to have a balance budget. The Federal government needs a constitutional amendment requiring the same.

    I would advise them to end all our wars, cut military spending by 50%, end all training of foreign military and paramilitary personnel, and close all military bases on foreign soil.

    Why would you advise your state politicians to get involved in Federal issues?
