We, The People

As a nation, we have an opportunity to send a message to the criminals in DC that their time of gorging and wallowing in the Public trough is coming to an end. Our local and state elections are nearing, affording us to send a glimpse of what will soon befall them to these dinosaurs in office.

Why do we keep re-electing these fossils to represent us? I suspect it is because we expect wisdom to come with age. However in most cases, it is greed that comes with years of political experience. Enough!

I am taking a new philosophy at how I view public SERVANTS. 1 term only, then you are out! Unless your job performance has benefited all the people in your districts in measurable ways, you have got one shot at it. This will remove the old stale thought processes and refresh the pool of Ideas more frequently.

It will also cost those who buy our elected officials more money to retain the same influence. I also think that the states should look at shortening the Terms of all Congress creatures to half of what they currently serve. This would also limit the influence peddling that goes on behind the scenes. Is this doable? With the will of the people I believe it is.

A message needs to be sent: Incumbents Out! Don't think you are going to settle into a nice career in politics because you are only going to get one shot at it.

The power to change lies with We, The People!


  1. Now if we could only get those pesky dead Democraps to quit voting...

  2. I am fine with term limits it is impossible to get anything done currently in less than 2 terms- so limit them to two terms. HOWEVER, for all federal representatives, make them deposit their money (and their immediate families monies) in the national coffers, the Fed prospers they prosper, the fed tanks so do they!~ Ensure honesty!

  3. We continue to vote for them because we are stupid. We pay no attention and then the week before the election, we vote for whoever had the best ad.

    Sigh... we get what we "pay" for.

  4. This election may finally bring out the people that can make a difference. We can only hope...AND VOTE!

    See Ya

  5. ...elections are rigged !...

    next ?...

  6. Hell down in Mobile, Alabama they put a dead demoncrap on some council or board of directors. A Demoncrap gov. can't stay honest (and some R's too) now they're going after the mayor of Birmingham for taking bribes and already convicted the payees so they have to testify against him. Demoncraps are just dumb crooks.
