    Voting can work

    The voting process can work. Do as Ralph Nader has been suggesting for years. Replace 90% of incumbents each voting cycle. Perhaps Occupy can get this off the ground.

    I say replace all republicans with green party thinkers and 90% of democrats with new democrats each voting cycle.

    Think this way..... maybe? Why do we americans vote in the right wing rich which are supported by too many of the rich to make decisions for the entire middle class and low income?

    Too many of the rich want to destroy the middle class so they have sent tens of millions of middle class jobs abroad with no job replacement in sight. Isn't their something wrong with this picture?

    Ask yourself why do we voters tend to vote for the largest spending candidates? What good has this choice been for the USA and our local government?

    Let's demand a new system and vote in Fair Vote America : FairVote.org | Instant Runoff Voting
    Demand a change on the next ballot.

    Let's have 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.

    Bribery of elected officials and bribed officials = the most stinky of all bribery!

    Electing the wealthy to congress and returning incumbents has cost this nation millions upon millions of jobs and billions in lost retirement programs.

    The TEA Party got there first... they've done the 'vote them all out' thing. Typical of the left to be jumping on a bandwagon of the right.

    They take thier cues from the O.

    Take credit, and jump on the bandwagon that works EVEN *IF* you're against it.

    One word...ELITE.

    Those they claim to champion are too stupid to rule thier own lives...and they will VOTE for the elites every time.
