    Here's is my idea:

    Purge the system is a non-partisan grass roots organizing endeavor by Americans that are sick to their stomach with our current representation in Washington. Spending is out of control, record fuel prices, taxes through the roof, bailouts to top a trillion dollars and they say they need more!

    It is a long known fact that we the American people want a Washington outsider inside the White House, yet we still have Washington insiders inside Washington. Its time to rid ourselves of the "business as usual" Washington attitude that it's people are blind and will let them do as they please at our expense. Through modern technology, we can see and share the truth like no other society in the history of the world and yet they look in our eyes and claim to have our best interests in mind.

    We the voters say "well its not the guy (or gal) that I voted in" and business proceeds as usual. Its time we stop this vicious cycle and purge the system of the muck that's running our great country into the ground.

    The Republicans say "its not our fault, the Dems have had control of the house for the past two years". The Democrats say "its the GOPs' fault, they had control for the previous six". Its time we say "its both of their fault" and hold them accountable. VOTE AGAINST ALL HOUSE AND SENATE CANDIDATES SEEKING REELECTION THIS NOVEMBER! Its our patriotic duty to hold them accountable and purge Washington of its Washington attitude. Its the only way for Washington to get the message that old world politics will no longer be tolerated in the United States.

    We understand that some of these sitting Congressional leaders are just that, leaders, but sometimes an apple is so rotten it has to be tossed as a whole instead of trying to cut out the bad parts. The cream will rise to the top. This purge wont effect the Presidential or State Government elections this election cycle, but we urge you to make an informed decision in those races. Tell your loved ones, friends, and neighbors. Print this mission statement and hand it out, put it on a post or in a window and when your local politicians campaign calls, tell them your voting against all sitting congressional leaders. We only have 38 days left to bring real change and reform to Washington.


    *Admin and mods, sorry for pushing the boundaries of your forum rules, I mean no disrespect. This is a genuine cause that benefits all Americans and is less then 24 hours old and will close shortly after the election. If I went to far please delete this thread and no hard feelings. Thank You for your support!

    I love this idea. However, you need to get rid of the "divide and conquer" media outlets that work for either the left and the right. They fill our heads with spam. There isn't going to be resolution, compromise. There isn't accountability. The politician is only thinking about the next election most of the time than he is representing the American people. We need term limits for members of Congress. Who wants to see a guy representing his district only because he has enough money come election time (its monopoly system) to defeat new challengers. Maybe after serving their term limits, they could go back and serve in local or state government where they are closer to their constituents.

    Thats the beauty of it. The media and the politicians mouth are out of the equation. Lets send a non-partisan message to them both that we the people are no longer going to tolerate incompetence from our leaders as a whole!

    Term limits and a reasonable salary are the two best campaign reforms I can think of... They'll never do it themselves... We have to insist on it.

    Hey, abortion became a litmus test for leadership... why not financial responsibility? If we go for 'for' and 'against' concepts like 'professional lobbying' and 'abortion' they'll hear us. We have to demand it.

    We have to end the concepts of 'career politician' and 'professional lobbyist'. If we don't demand it, they will never do it.

    Keep those e-mails flying to your representatives. Try and hammer issues in groups with straight forward and simply uncluttered demands, like "Get rid of the lobbyist infestation in this country", and then give them yes or no input on their proposals...

    The 'No Wall Street Bail Out' movement was cool to watch and be part of... I sent e-mails to DC... You?

    Get rid of it by not watching it - like you are doing right now!
