    Im curious to hear peoples opinions about a non-partisan movement to vote out all sitting Congressional leaders regardless of political party. I feel its time we raise the bar in Washington. Carer politicians are becoming way to powerful.

    Its time we send a message to Washington that their incompetence as a whole will no longer be tolerated by the American people.

    We already know you are.

    I am in favor of term limits. If they are only going to be there for x number of years, they are going to do much more than always looking ahead in the next election. End the monopoly in some districts. They are only in power because the lobbyist know who they are.

    That works if you goal is to unseat the Democrats in control since their majority is tenuous at best with a 49/49 split and 2 independents who caucus with the dems.

    I've said before I don't necessarily think that's a bad idea.... a Republican Congress and Democratic President is what worked so well from 93-2001 and there's no reason to think it wouldn't work again just as well.

    how about we start with a party change in the white house and work our way down :)

    I'm in favor of terms limits too... I think the elections is what prompted the Republicans to bail out on the bail out... they listened to the people calling saying don't vote for it...in spite of the fact that most of those people haven't a fucking real clue what is actually going on. Sometimes the people don't know what's best for the entire country.

    If you think this bailout is best for the entire country, you pay for it. I'm sick of funding fucked up programs.

    This isnt about control, we need to change and reform now, this election. I dont know about you guys/gals, but Im not willing to count on Obama or McCaine to bring it! Its time the American people step up to the plate and stand as one, red and blue, and TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK.
