    Congress, as a whole, is corrupt -- both Houses, both major parties.

    In November of 2010, the entire House of Representatives will have to stand for re-election -- all 435 of them. One third of the Senate, a total of 33 of them, will also stand for re-election.

    We should vote every incumbent out in 2010, no matter their Party affiliation -- start all over in the House of Representatives with 435 people who have absolutely no experience in running that body, with no political favors owed to anyone but their own constituents. We should make them understand that they work for us, that they are answerable to us and they must run that body with some common sense.

    Moving forward, in 2012, the next third of the incumbents in the Senate should be voted out. You'll know who they are because their names will be on the ballot and, in most cases, will be shown as the Incumbent. If you don't know who your Senators are (there are only two for each State), find out. Repeat in 2014 and, by that time, we will have put all new people in that body as well.

    We, the People, need to take this Country back -- peacefully. That's what the Framers of our Constitution envisioned.

    I'm loyal to my Rep and I like both Senators. So tell me again why shouldn't I vote for who I want in office?

    As apperaling as that sounds Allbiz, its a bit too radical for me. We have a president with no experience who is floundering right now. I can't imagine having another bunch of rookies no matter how accomplished in their own fields. I would alo be suspect of newbies motives. Who the hell wants that job?

    I will vote for Roskum again, he votes the way most of DuPage County likes. However, both my Senators should be gone, but fat chance of that.

    Great idea.

    Now show us how to get names of people who have not already sold their souls to the devil on the ballot.

    You will find that most Americans want to throw all the rascals out...but like their own Rep and will reelect them.

    Ours, I want gone. He's a carpetbagger who has done nothing for us. But I seem to be in the minority in our district.

    Mark Kirk, a representative from IL I had long admired was also 1 of the 8. I'd planned on volunteering on his run for Burris's seat, no longer. Unfortunately his from North Shore, not my rep.
