    I plan on voting against every single one of these dirtbags that call themselves representatives.

    Our congress, be it the house or senate, are a bunch of non-representing representatives.

    Its as if the British Red Coats were in charge once again doing whatever is best for themselves irregardless of the consitution.

    I say kick them all out of office, and then do it again every election for the next several cycles until they get the hint.

    WE ARE NOT HAPPY, WE ARE NOT GONNA TAKE IT ANYMORE!!!!

    Am I the only one or are some of you feeling like this too?

    I'm not a Republican, I'm not a democrat, I AM AN AMERICAN!!!!! Start respecting my country, my consitution, and our national heritage or get fired/voted out.

    Add your 2 cents people.

    I'll have a Senator to vote for along with my Representative, and Senator Voinovich is not running in 2010 so I'll luckily have more options to vote for. So far there are 3 candidates in the race that I'm aware of, and I'm not impressed by any of them. But hopefully somebody good pops up that I can support. As far as my Representative goes, I can't wait to vote against him.

    Be pragmatic. If your Rep. has represented you well, vote for his re-election. Throwing out the whole congress will produce a bunch of know-nothings, at least as to how to get things done in there; it's akin to throwing out the baby with the bathwater.

    It would be foolhardy to lose for symbolism. The lib side will not do that.....but they would try to convince us to do just that! Crap!

    Our congressman Steve Buyer has done a superb job, and I'll vote to keep him in office
    The congressman just south of our district (Rep Baron Hill) is a true libtard (you should see the letter he wrote me in answer to my opposing Cap and Trade) and even though I can't vote for his opponent I'll donate a 100 $ to whoever it is and talk to everyone in his district to try to take away votes to him - just like I promised in my recent letter to him re: C&T

    Our only Senator up for re-election, Senator Evan Bayh, in the first term (98-04) voted 80% of the time against small business, which is my acid test. In the last term (04-10) he has turned that exactly around, and voted 80% for small business. Now I want to see what he does on C&T. I'll do my best to convince him on that with threats of support of his opponent, an unknown person presently.

    Senator Lugar has voted consistently 80% for small business during his tenure, but he has become too much a part of the same crowd as Colin Powell, the Washington dinner and wine set. I voted against him because of that in the 06 primary, and did not vote for him in the general even though he is a member of my party of record.

    Unfortunately, there are few instances of "represented you well" on the whole. And I fail to see the logic of "will produce a bunch of know-nothings" since we have a system in place that is supposed to ensure that they don't sit and atrophy in their chairs while they're getting nothing done. The same applies for the office of President, except there are is a term limit that ensures some new blood at least every 8 years. The problem is that the people are too damned lazy to do their research -- to find out if they're being represented, to find out if the bath water needs to be changed, to find out what type of water is appropriate for the replacement.

    I'm from MA guys.

    My representatives include the likes of John Kerry, Barney Frank, and Teddy "chappaquiddick" Kennedy.

    Not exactly the cream of the crop so i'm voting em out. If I had any republican representatvies i'd vote them out too as my state is 2 billiion in debt.

    Now if ANY of my representatives voted against the bailouts, TARP, the auto takeover, or the house's cap and trade bill I would re-elect them....but they all voted for this garbage.


    What about your representatives? Are they fighting all this irresponsible legislation?

    I'll vote for Roskum for House or Senate, his decision. In reality being IL, we'll keep him in the 6th.

    I'll vote against Durbin. Problem really is Burris. I'd vote against him, however we need a Republican other than Mark Kirk, that voted for cap & trade.
