    Politicians don't make change WE do so get off your butts and do something such as vote

    Off Your Butts NOW!

    All democrats need to get off their butts,follow politics more closely and stop relying on the BS mainstream media as a source for much of anything.

    Republicans have no one to vote for.

    Neoconservatives vote blindly for anyone that calls themselves republican

    Democrats come out to vote but not in huge numbers until the crap hits the fan. Democrats truly need to start cleaning house and bring in MORE new democrats
    who will show some backbone. Stop waiting for the shit to hit the fan.

    The Green Party need to become very very loud to keep the issues on the table instead of
    allowing the neoconservative party and the democratic party to decide what the issues are...... and WHO the candidates should be.

    All voters especially the democrats need to get off their butts,follow politics more closely and stop relying on the BS mainstream media as a source for much of anything.

    All candidates running for any office should be allowed to participates in all debates INSTEAD of allowing the neoconservative party,the democratic party and the BS mainstream media to call the shots.

    Ralph Nader for President - he may piss off the mainstream politicians but at least he'll get the attention of the citizens who then can badger the politicians.

    Lets’s demand a new system and vote in Fair Vote America : FairVote.org | Instant Runoff Voting

    Demand an opportunity to vote for Fair Vote and Public Finance on the next ballot.

    Incumbents say NO to the voters and YES to corrupt special interest money.

    We need public financing of campaigns. Citizens cannot afford special interest money campaigns for it is the citizens that get left out. Let citizens vote on this issue.
    Home | Public Campaign

    Who would be against Public Funding? The special interest money providers plus their bought and paid for politicians!

    Boy, Stossel sure did nail the OP who started this stupid thread. This OP should do his or her patriotic duty and just stay home on Election Day...

    As far as I'm concerned Washington D.C. democrats have been too busy compromising and trying to build bridges that have not been there to build for 30 years or more. The bridges are not there today and will not be there in January.

    I'd say they shot themselves in the foot.

    They could have moved forward in 3-5 different areas instead they worried about filibusters. And they kissed the fannies of the medical insurance industry who then turned around and financed the republican wins.

    Opportunities lost:
    1. IMPROVED Medicare Insurance for ALL as a choice

    2. Accelerated movement into new energy that could have put thousands of jobs in each state

    3. Green Collar Industry = USA jobs jobs jobs

    4. Eliminating Special Interest Funding of campaigns that which takes our elected officials away from why they were elected - to tend to legislative business

    5. Stop funding the $5 trillion war that is not making new friends anywhere in the world.

    Republicans will not change their rigid agenda of the past 30 years. We'll see more stonewalling against jobs and a strong economy,will waste a ton of time undoing Obamacare and keep the multi trillion dollar war going.

    The never ending political campaigns are still in gear thereby diverting attention from the needs of the country. Our costs of living will continue to increase to support reckless spending on the campaign trail. We voters cannot afford this system.
