My open letter

Dear Mr. President, Members of Congress, Cabinet Members, Members of the Federal Courts:

It has come to our attention while observing your decisions for my government that you may not fully understand our constitutional system.  Thus, I am writing to bring to your attention several features of our Constitution—the preamble,  the power to elect you or have you nominated & confirmed by people we elect.

First, under our Constitution, while the president enacts laws, Congress writes the law. Judicial system interpets the law.

We. Elect. You.

Second, the offices of our Constitution have different characteristics.  For example, the president may serve only two 4-year terms, whereas senators may serve an unlimited number of 6-year terms.  As applied today, for instance, President Obama will leave office in January 2017, while most of us will remain in office well beyond then—perhaps decades.

We can start voting at 18.

What these three constitutional provisions mean is that we will consider all actions approved by the Congress. We could modify the terms of the service on the 1st Tuesday of November in even years.

I hope this letter enriches your knowledge of our constitutional system and promotes mutual understanding and clarity as The United States progresses.


Vernon J
Voter from Nebraska.
