Federalist Paper 62 “The internal effects of a mutable policy are still more calamitous. It poisons the blessing of liberty itself. It will be of little avail to the people, that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man, who knows what the law is to-day, can guess what it will be to-morrow. Law is defined to be a rule of action; but how can that be a rule, which is little known, and less fixed?” Alexander Hamilton/James Madison
Let your voice be heard that you support limiting the size and length of bills, and making bills coherent for the American people and members of Congress to read and understand.
The Truth Act*makes the bills simple not “voluminous” and easy to understand not “incoherent” for both legislators and the American people.† Thus, it will be beneficial to the people, and to the Republic, that “laws are made by men of their own choice.”
T-The bills (including amendments) put forth by legislators are to be limited to single subjects,†and THIRTY pages, with U.S.†legal code interpretations in the side margins. An accompanying version of the bill is to be written in 5th grade reading level for easy and nationwide comprehension.
R-The bills (and consequent amendments) are to be READ by the legislators – the new amendments are to be underlined with the old version included for clarity. They are to be available for the American people to read – at least thirty days before voting.
U-The bills (and consequent amendments) are to be UNDERSTOOD by the legislators.
T-Before voting on the bills, Congressmen and Senators are to TESTIFY under oath that they have read and understood the bills and consequent amendments to the bills.
H-The American people are to HEAR the proposed – and final – version of the bills. The bills are to be read on camera and put online so that the people may HEAR (as well as read) the bill at least 30 days before voting on the bill occurs.
The indeterminably disastrous†effects of such voluminous and incoherent bills such as the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), Dodd Frank, the Patriot Act and the upcoming Immigration Bill are all examples of bills that were/are too voluminous and incoherent for both legislators and the American people, leading to America’s demise and Americans loss of liberty.

I think what you are doing is admirable. This should have been addressed years ago!
I am a former board operator at kprc. wish u were there then. your show is great.
I thank you for your comment and for signing the TRUTH ACT! Please spread the word!
This is a great idea! I would like to help support this petition by placing it on my websites. However I find no “permissions” for reprinting your content.
Please advise if I can be of service to this much needed petition.
I thank you for your suggestion. I am looking into this asap!
This would be a Godsend. Hope it goes through and its not to late.
I thank you for signing! It is never too late! My goal is 100,000 signatures! Please help spread the word!
Great Act! Keep up the good work and press on!
We the people need to take our country back from the current tyrannical regime!
where is the dotted line? Ill sign rite now
I’m passing this along to many friends. Keep it up!!!
i like this idea, it adds another layer of communication to each other other then trying to wade through the main media looking for information on who is telling you the truth and who is just looking for pats on the back to stay in office. That is what got us here in the first place, We need real transparency not the BS of a MSNBS
you should add that when bills are submitted, Reps & Sens are to be required to show how their Bills fulfill Constitutional requirements (are constitutional in nature) before they can be voted on and made law.
I love your show finally government information that someone can understand!! Signed your petition as well.
I would ask all Active Vets and Former/Disabled Vets such as myself to sign this .
Janine please keep up this fight up. It is going to take people like you and others like you for us to hang on to this country. Thank you for what you have done so far, and for your efforts yet to come.
Can;t sign a petition when there is no way to find a way to click. i went all over the page after clicking on ‘sign the petition’ but could not do so.
Janine, thank you for your patriotism. I stand very proudly with you. God bless you, and God bless America………..
Heard about this during your appearance on Monica Crowley. Passing the link to the petition along for ALL my Conservative friends to sign! Wonderful idea!
I think this should awaken more of the american people just how our polticians should be passing these bills.
We like minded people need to band together. United we stand divided we fall.
The current regime must go.
Kudos to you Janine.
It is my view that the problems with America go WAAAAY beyond the current administration.
We like minded people need to band together. United we stand divided we fall.
The current regime must go.
I heard you on the Monica Crowley show yesterday which led me to your website. Kudos to you Janine.
A Truth Act and Term limits for the Senate and The House of Representatives would go a long way to clean up Washington.
Janine thanks for what your doing,
Thrilled to be a part a getting America back to its roots
This is the best idea for legislative bills that I have seen. Thank you for your proposal and I certainly hope it is put into practice.
For all you do and for all you say I thank you. The world would be a better place if we had more like you and Sarah Palin!
Sure would like to be optimistic about this program.
Thank you for setting up this petition. I am so glad Suzie added it to The Constitutional Conservative so we could sign it. I just wish someone would get a petition or action started against Obama for his treasonous acts. It has been proven he attacked Lybia without Congressional consent, now he has kidnapped a citizen of Lybia without a warrant or going thru the Lydian government. That is just 2 acts. He has done more harm to our country in 5 years, than since America’s birth.
You are truly a Patriot and friend to all of us.
Thanks We have to take this country back soon. I love this idea. God Bless You all !
This s really needed. “REALLY”, more than most people know.
Janine, thank you. Also, I have been a fan of yours for a long time. I admire you more knowing, you are fore the truth and a better more accountable Government.
It’s so great to be a part of the “Great Awakening”!
I have followed your career since Northern Exposure and I always thought you were beautiful and talented… Today, I think you are even more beautiful because you are a TRUE PATRIOT!!! You fight for an America in a way that would make the founding fathers proud!!!!
Thank You from an Admirer…
Limit bills to no more than 30 pages.
Janine I will spread the word. Everyone should sign theThe Truth Petition..
Thank you so much for all you do. God bless . I admire you”
You were awesome then and you are awesome now!
This is SO common sense it is unbelievable that it is not already in the Constitution! I have been begging for this sort of legislation for decades. It is SOOOOO Reaganesque!
Keep up the good work. We need more individuals like you.
A friend sent me this email. I couldn’t agree more. For such is a time is this that Patriots stand and be counted and heard. Our Nation is being Pillaged by those who with the finances to control the politicians that are our public servants and the lawyers that work for them are the ones who create the verbiage of the Legislation and its volume to be distracting. This is a different kind of destruction and war occurring within our Democracy. I will pass this on.
Valuable info. Lucky me I discovered your web site accidentally, and I’m surprised why
this accident didn’t came about earlier! I bookmarked it.
Thank you for outstanding work your doing
I stand with you all,and.may.the.Good Lord restore our faith and our.beloved.country.
Heard you and your daughter speak at a homeschool convention this weekend in Dallas. My husband and I were really inspired by the two of you!
Thank you Jessica! We really enjoyed speaking at TTD last week.
Your right about the bills, they need to be written in a manner where anyone could pick it up and read and understand every word!!!!!!!!!
In defending the great work of our Founding Fathers you walk among them.. Standing on the wall is not easy, slings and arrows and all, I am happy to sign and support this effort. Thank you, Maury Polse
Janine you are wonderful, and so much more. It is beyond me why men we have elected regardless of party leave their common sense behind when they go to Washington. As well as their Patriotism which would require them to do morally what is best for the country, again regardless. Term Limits need to be imposed, our founders never foresaw any one spending 40 years in Congress. Term Limits, two three year terms for a Senator and two four year terms for a Congressman. Their home state PAYS THEIR SALARY and provides a modest domicile for the time they spend in Washington. Their home State should also provide for their Health Insurance while in office. No retirement, medical insurance or any other benefits when they leave office, either Federal or State, (THEY CAME TO SERVE, NOT TAKE). GOD BLESS. Jerry Scott
In addition to what you suggest, Jerry, it would be nice, though fanciful, to see an appeal of the Seventeenth Amendment, which would give back to the states the power that the founding fathers originally intended them to have under Article I, §3, Clauses 1 and 2 of the Constitution, under which senators were elected by state legislatures.
Please accept my apology for the usage of an incorrect word in my above comment. I meant to say “repeal” and not “appeal.”
Thank you for all you are doing to save our country!!
Janine,. I was always a Fan of your acting,.. but I have become a Fan of yours on a more Personal and Patriotic Level. I have Always Loved this country and what it stood for, and I see the current administration and Current politicians in Congress taking our country to a point of No Return. I could not believe when Nancy Pelosi was saying , “We need to get this bill passed ( Obamacare), and Then you can read it,.. and They Did!! That was to me a major slap in the face by our Entire Government. I am behind you all the way. I have a great band and would be glad to offer our services for any rallies , etc. if I could be of help in that way. Keep Pushing to Restore America Back to a Place of Honor and with a President and Leaders we can be Proud of. Not ones that I see as Criminals. Thanks for all you’re doing! God Bless You and God Bless the REAL America and Americans!
God bless you, Janine.
Thanks so much for being a voice of reason among your “former” peers, it is gratifying to see a humble and grounded person coming from a Hollywood background, keep up the good fight Janine!!!
Thank you Janine for all you do to curb corruption in our government and making sure that the Constitution is followed.
Janine, as always your leadership is an example and inspiration to all of us. You are a true American Patriot! Thank you for all you do to stand up for our Constitution.
Nancy K. Arnold
THIS IS A BIG ISSUE ! THE SAME COMPLICATIONS AND TWISTS ARE
IN THE STATE POLITICS AS WELL. IT’S UNSURE WHO IS DRIVING AND
WHO IS GIVING THE DIRECTIONS. LOCAL, FEDERAL, AND GOV. ALL DO
AS THEY PLEASE…..THATS NOT RIGHT, IT’S CAUSING A MASSIVE BREAKDOWN IN THE LAWS, THE LEADERSHIP AND OUR STRUCTURE
AS A COUNTRY! IT’S REAL SCAREY WHAT’S GONNA HAPPEN IF WE
ALL TRY TO FOLLOW, WITHOUT CLEAR REASONS………TOO MANY HANDS ON THE WHEEL…… TOO MUCH CONTROL, OVER WHAT ?
WERE NECK DEEP IN MISUNDERSTANDING ! LACK OF NORMAL RULES
DISASTER IS NOT THE ANSWER. WE NEED A CLEAR EXPLANATION TO
HELP NORMAL PEOPLE AS WELL AS THE LEADERS, TO BE ON THE SAME PAGE. I HONOR YOUR EFFORTS………NEVER GIVE UP !
