"Throw the bums out!"


"Throw the bums out!"

The simple and insulting truth is that a mere 500 or so men defy the will of millions. The very people we elect and send to Washington to create laws that protect our interests refuse to represent us and ignore our clearly stated will on these crucial issues and many more.

They ignore "we the people" and do the bidding of "we the rich." Until we confront these play-for-pay lapdogs, they will continue to serve a tiny elite minority of rich and powerful oligarchs and America will continue its slow but certain decline. You and I will live like beggars and America will become a Third World country.

We've all been appalled by recent events. We've watched as our government was shut down. We've been horrified by the fight over the debt limit. We've seen the systematic destruction of our democratic way of life.

So what can we do? With millions of dollars of fat cat money floating around, the voice of the regular guy has been drowned out. There has been no way to get rid of the crooks and liars. But I believe now there is.

1. From the link ...


72% of American voters are for raising taxes on the wealthy. That equates to 108 million people.

76% of American voters want to cut back on military spending. That's 114 million people.


79% of American voters want no cuts in Social Security and Medicare. Over 118 million people.

93% of American voters want labeling of GMOs in their food. That's nearly 140 million people!!

Still, I'll wager that 80% of incumbents are re-elected in November.
