    Replacing remocrats with depublicans isn't kicking anyone out.....It's just rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic.

    Kill all the lobbiests. Turn off the money faucett. Eliminate by any means available any media whore or politician that willfully lies to the public. Cap a handfull of these vermin and the bullshit will stop abruptly. What do you expect thieves to do when they don't have to suffer for stealing our money? I doubt they would do it if they thought they would have to pay the ultimate price.

    How about we vote out our own representatives if they are doing a bad job every election? I have no wish to "kick them all out", as far as I know my representative is doing a fine job.

    Also, why is it we have to vilify 'special interests' and 'lobbyists'? People will always 'lobby' their own interests to their elected representative, that's the whole point of having a representative, so he/she can represent your best interests.

    I can't vote on other state's senators and congressmen. I dont think you should leave anyone in for more than a term or two, even if they are doing a good job. The position of power we give to them should be temporary in order to stave off corrupting influences.

    You don't see any problem with how our politicians are governing and who they let influence their decisions?

    I'm not vilifying special interests or lobbyists, i'm calling them out for what they have been doing. To tell the truth, even if the truth is ugly for them, is not villifying
    .

    However when the politicians listen to rich special interests because they need the wealth of those interests to get reelected the people have no power. If we start voting them out the politicans will see a clear choice....listen to the people over the corporate sponsored lobbyists or be fired by the people you are supposed to represent.

    I live in a congressional district that, at one time, was represented by Wayne L. Hayes. Remember him? He was caught with a D.C. working girl as his car floated in the Reflecting Pool on the National Mall.

    Sometime after that, my Congressman was James Trafficant! Remember him? "Beam me up, Scotty!" Jim was recently release from federal custody after he was convicted of bribery and extortion charges.

    Kick 'em out? Fine!

    Because they are scum. They corrupt the system. They steal from the voice of the people. They are the conduits of graft from those corporations that are intrenched like leaches burried deep into the bussom which is our treasury and self interest.

    Point....Why do our representatives give billions in corporate welfare to the oil companies that squeeze every drop of blood from our economy with oil owned by us leased to these vermin, refined and sold back to us at as high a price as they think they could get away with. I have an idea to help get the economy on its feet tuite suite. Throw these vultures that own the oil companies and those that speculate on this critical comodity that shouls be considered part of our national security, into jail,charge them with treason and execute them. Take nationalize all oil operations. Gas would go down to less than a dollar a gallon immediately. That would lower the cost of all goods and sevices immediately. Imagine what it would do for the economy if every american had an extra couple of hundred dollars a month for the next twenty years paying for us made goods that would cost 25 per cent less. Naw never mind...you chumps just keep taking it up the ass and pretending you are in love with the rapists.
