    Seems like a real good idea to me. I don't see much difference between republicans and democrats in this regard- they all fleeced the country....

    Indicted Rep. William Jefferson (D-La.), who was videotaped by the FBI receiving $100,000 in $100 bills, much of which was later recovered from his home's freezer in an FBI raid, was the top vote-getter Saturday in a field of seven candidates in Louisiana's Democratic primary.

    We went to breakfast yesterday and there was a man standing on the corner with a sign that said "VOTE FOR THE OTHER GUY/GIRL" and the response was amazing. If people want a real change, then thats the best way to do it. Get rid of all of them on one big lump, when you see the word incumbant you should pull the lever for the other person.

    Why then does it surprise anyone in his district when the services that they think are owed to them by the Fed. never seem to come out to their satisfaction? You vote for a crook , thats exactly what you get to represent you.

    I love this idea. 74 out of 100 Senators gone. And the 228+ House of Representatives. They can join Bush in the unemployment line.

    Two things to clean up 95% of bullshit in Congress:
    1. Term limits.
    2. Fair or Flat Tax with no meddling allowed.
