Just curious: a recent poll showed that over 50% of those polled want EVERY politician thrown out of office. HOWEVER, the same poll showed that approximately 50% want THEIR representative re-elected.
ARE YOU PEOPLE INSANE????
HOW DO YOU THINK WE GOT TO THIS MESS WE ARE IN RIGHT NOW????
HOW DO YOU THINK WE WILL EVER RECOVER AMERICA WITH THE SAME IDIOTS IN CHARGE????
It is very simple: throw ALL the bums out.
FORCE every single newly elected official to stand for what they promised in their campaigns or FORCE them OUT.
TERM LIMITS must be imposed. For EVERY office. NO EXCEPTIONS.
RESTRUCTURE THE PAY/PERKS/LIFETIME PENSIONS that our so-called 'representatives' have voted for themselves. Do YOU get a full-pay pension plus all perks including 'gold-plated medical care' after a few years at YOUR job? Oh, wait....that's if you even still HAVE a job....
It is well-past, but not too late, time the American people WAKE UP & make the hard changes. Yes, you may personally like YOUR representative but realize that he/she is tied into the Washington DC power-structure these people have created for themselves. How else do you explain your representative going to Washington DC as an ordinary citizen & becoming a millionaire within a few years? All on a salary of less than $200,000 per year.
WOW! They must have some amazing financial planners. But you & I - ordinary beings that we are - do not have access to either their financial planners or to their sources of extra income. So, you tell me -- did you vote for them to REPRESENT YOU or to ENRICH THEMSELVES?
TIME TO CLEAN HOUSE & SENATE & JUDICIARY. If anyone is an incumbent, get rid of them. Period. End of discussion. If the newbie is no good, throw them out after one term. THE POINT IS TO CLEAN UP THE MESS.
They talk & discuss & argue & lie & cheat - then they excuse themselves & each other. Enough is enough.
I AM MAD AS HELL & I AM NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE.
WAKE UP AMERICA. If you sleep through all the alarms going off now, you will deserve to be ruled by those who will tell you every move in your life.
Last thought: if the GOVERNMENT is going to decide what each person 'needs', tell me what they will decide for those who think it's nothing to spend $6,000 for a pair of jeans or $2,000 for shoes? Who decides who gets to spend that kind of money (think Hollywood sleazes) while you will be told to buy YOUR clothes at a thrift store?
