We Need A New Government

This will be the last political post I do before the election next week. Hopefully. We've all become sick of politics, to an extent. More so with this mid-term election than ever before. We have an inept government that can't even wipe their noses without it costing taxpayers millions. So, let me know if I'm crazy in thinking that it's time for every member of the government to go and be replaced with new blood. Right now we have people in Congress who've been there for 30+ years with nothing to really show for it but partisan fighting and spending our money on their weekly vacations to Bermuda. Did you know that Congress only worked a 141 days last year? They've become a cancer on this country and need to be removed. So, here's my plan it all it's simplicity. Every politician can serve no more than one 4 year term. That's it. From the local Mayor of Broken Bow, Oklahoma right up the the President of the United States. Every four years we hold a national election and the person in office is replaced. That could severely restrict their ability to dig in their claws and become the overpriced con artists they are today. But I'm under no disillusionment that this would ever actually happen. I mean, to get people like Trent Lott and Ted Kennedy out of office would take God himself. They're pockets are too well lined to even consider something as blasphemous as a four year term limit.

It's November 5th around my end of the world... maybe that should give you a few ideas as to how to get that idea into motion? ;P

The ballot box is a built-in term limit, vote each one out. All term limits take choices away from Americans and are a mistake. Web roots and grass roots movements from voting citizens are what is needed, not restriction of our choices in elected officials. Educating, organizing and voting them out of office is the right answer.

I am working to boost morale through increased voting unity at my website and thought you might find it of interest.

Please check out when you can and thanks! God Bless our Troops!

Yeah, Mike and I were just talking about this the other day. We just have a bunch of useless leeches up there. There's not a REAL American representing any of us, just some wealthy, out-of-touch career politicians who couldn't care less about our personal safety.

political change - the 5th November
an outstanding solution!
All we need is some 'guy' to do it.

In my corner of the world, the Government has re-introdued the charge of 'sedition'. I could get locked-up for just joking about it (in theory)
