Major news everywhere, Wednesday May 19, 2010:"Delivering a powerful message of discontent, voters shake things up for both parties."
"Stay the course? You've got to be kidding. This is America, not the damned, 'Titanic'. I'll give you a sound bite: 'Throw all the bums out!"
You can hardly find a person any more - - Democrat or Republican - - who isn’t distressed with Washington’s special-interest influenced failures and who doesn’t believe that our elected officials, mostly Congresspersons, aren’t totally corrupt and paid off by special interests. How else could they be so incompetent and failing totally in making our country energy-independenthttp://push.pickensplan.com/profiles/blogs/a-mystery-is-washingtons-1
and fail totally in producing a health care legislation that would benefit the individual instead of allowing special interest rip-offs?http://push.pickensplan.com/profiles/blogs/washingtons-failure-to-pass
Why is this happening?With opinions expressed by individuals, we have a window into our country's soul:
"Less government, less taxes, fewer problems. Political office is not a career, it's a S E R V I C E to your fellow man, then leave, go back to your "career". Like our fore-fathers intended it to be. P. K.
"Like my Grampaw Gus used to say, "When things don't make sense, there's a con in the works!
"Why common-sense programs in Congress fail: Simple; not in the interest of self-serving lobby paid influences of big bucks. This has got to stop.” S.P.
"Politics has become a way to make a lucrative living on bribes and payoffs. They only know taxes and spending but nothing abut making the government work to financially support the country and not overburden the taxpayers. We certainly can't believe anything they promise. we have to face reality that once these guys are exposed to some large payoffs for votes and favors none of us will ever see the right thing done for the American public.”
"Short of riots, etc, our only power as common peons is the power of our votes. Collective focus for major turn-over of these collective smug politicians why I see our only option is to dislodge at least 50% of Congress and many incumbent Senators also." W. R.
