Proposed as the 28th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America
NoPartiesUSA.MembershipSiteHeaven.com is a new membership website to promote the idea of the U.S.A. being united, with NO political parties. Debate would still happen, without a “D” or an “R” next to the name of a Member of Congress, either in the House of Representatives or the Senate. This Act would be passed as the 28th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America. Political parties started as factions, a divisive term, back in the days of George Washington. He warned against them (see the Q&A near the end of this document).
As part of this Act, Term Limits for elected officials of the Federal government would be enacted. They are at a maximum of 2 terms of 4 years now, for the President and Vice President, which would continue. Under this Act, Senators would serve a maximum of 2 terms of 6 years. Members of the House of Representatives would serve a maximum of 6 terms of 2 years.
Also, to keep the efficacy and sharpness of all elected officials, a cap would be imposed upon their age. No elected official would be elected if their term would cause them to exceed age 70 before it was over. This would mean that a President and Vice President would be no more than 62 at the time of their Inauguration. The Senators and members of the House of Representatives would be elected at no more than age 64 and age 68, respectively. This Act would put into law, that no person above 70 would be serving as a “career politician”, and there would be no more political parties…just Americans.
The Electoral College would no longer be needed. Those candidates for a position would be placed on the ballot based upon their submitting a certain number of signatures, which would act as a “petition” to be placed on the ballot. Then, in the only election (no “primary elections” would be needed, since there would be no political parties), the candidate with the most votes would win the election…period.
This just makes sense. No “red states”, no “blue states”, just the 50 states of the United States of America, led by those who are NOT past retirement age, and who have their minds and their bodies tuned to meet the needs of ALL Americans, not just one certain segment of them, or some minority or special interest group.
The Great Divide in U.S. leadership MUST end! The United States of America MUST be truly united, under God, with liberty and justice for ALL!
Question: Why were the founding fathers concerned about political parties?
Answer: Political factions (parties) developed in 1787 leading up to the Constitutional Convention. Washington warned the people that political factions may seek to obstruct the execution of the laws created by the government or to prevent the branches of government from enacting the powers provided them by the Constitution. George Washington was broadly sympathetic to the Federalist program, but he remained officially non-partisan during his entire presidency.
