|Please read on for the specifics.|
- For one month, all 535 members of the United States Congress shall be sequestered in a secure and undisclosed hotel. (If it is safer for them to be housed in a different location, like a federal or state prison, this should be considered.) Room assignments must be, wherever possible, with someone from the opposite party.
- Like a jury sequestration, Congress must not have access to phones or media and must not discuss matters of state with anyone outside Congress,*except as noted below.
- They must be fed whole foods and nourishing beverages.
- They must engage in at least 30 minutes of their choice of exercise each day.
- They must have access to a Bible, a clergyman of their choice, a copy of the Constitution of the United States, and a library containing the writings of the framers of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. Members must also have access to a copy of the Affordable Care Act.
- Each afternoon, they must submit to the President at least one handwritten note, knowing that this note will be entered into public record at the end of the sequestration. Each note MUST contain: at least one compliment about a member of the opposite party, at
least one suggestion for a resolution to the current stalemate, and at least one confession of his/her own party's error or omission from somewhere in history.
- The President will personally create a notebook with all of the notes and will make a photocopy for each of the sequestered people.
- *During this process, Congress may communicate, (via personal, handwritten note) with anyone in the group, or with the President, or with any of their staff. Staff communications are solely for the purpose of carrying out duties related to keeping the people of the United States safe.) Staff must not divulge the contents of the notes, except to carry out the specific requests of Congress. But all notes must be submitted to the President and must be entered into the public record at the end of the month-long experience.
- On the final day, Congress must convene and they must take turns reading the entire document (see #7) aloud. This reading must be televised, unedited, with a note to the media that anything taken out of context will be considered an act of dis-service to our great country.
- They must return promptly to the business of legislation and work together to solve the current crisis with the tools at hand, practicing the goodwill they now have learned to express.
- After another thirty days, if Congress has not resolved the current crisis to the satisfaction of all 535 members, then each member must submit a handwritten letter of resignation to the President, with a copy to the governor of their home state. This resignation must take effect at the end of their current term and must include an admission of personal failure to carry out his/her duties.
- While this process is underway, the President will be respectfully requested NOT to make any public statements about the process or about what he has heard or read from the involved parties -- unless he says something like, "This is great. This is wonderful. I am hopeful. Let's wait and see..." These statements would be allowed.

Many Blessings to you.
