ENOUGH OF THE BULLSHIT ALREADY

Why these people in Congress get everything handed to them is beyond me.

They are no better than Joe Shit the Ragman down the block who sweeps the fucking floor for a living.

I am for the removal of their healthcare, expense accounts and security details.

Cut their pay as well. No shows count as absent and a day less of pay. Poor attendance? Your fired just like the rest of the working people in the USA!!

One term limit and that's it!!

They aint no better than anyone else in this soon to be god forsaken country of ours!! Unless we shape the fuck up!!!

3. While they support fracking, which poisons our ground water, but that's just fine with those

Tea Partying Paul Ryan Randians, because some of their sort can get richer selling private access (leased water filtering systems) to water that won't kill, like unfiltered water will after it sends you into their FOR-PROFIT "health" "care" systems to be fleeced and bankrupted to little or no salutary effect.

4. One-terming doesn 't make a difference. Look at our wonderful one-termers in the House.

And there are more Tea Party radicals in the wings to take their place. That solution is simplistic and doesn't take into effect the funding.

Most people with the freedom to run for office are independently wealthy to begin with, and won't be affected by not being paid or getting pensions or healthcare.

Or else they are the bought out Koch family stooges who don't care about the government, in fact they want it privatized. They are there to steal everything that exists from us, money, freedom and resources.

They are put in office to serve their corporatist donors, and will simply go to work for them directly after directing millions into their coffers while in office - like Cantor and Ryan.

Clean the place out? Who's funding the Koch brothers take over of the USA right now?

Think that money and media that brainwashes the public to put these rubes in office will go away by cutting the pay or terms of representatives?

I do not support this simple solution. It's been tried before and didn't work except to express outrage. Now that outrage is mostly in the hands of the Teabaggers. That change was not good.

If a representative is doing a good job like the members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus are, I don't want them booted and replaced by Kochroaches. There are many good people there who should stay in Congress.

5. The real problem is America is addicted to Bullshit

The proof is the republicans ability to run the same old campaigns and the american public not only believes it, they will get angry at anything that threatens it. Big Government is the problem not big multinationals, Its all Obama's fault, in fact the attacks on our president have been so vicious, mean spirited, using strong currents of racism, This started in the primaries and has gotten so bad that the KKK does not use the "N" word anymore, they have replaced with "Obama" many on the right have followed suit this can be sustained by examining the content and tone of speeches, letters, and attack ads, it will go down in history as the most corrupt election in US history, not only from the money from mega donors, but the complete absence of ideas and proposals to deal with the real problems of this country, such as the TRADE IMBALANCE, CORPORATE WELFARE, CORRUPT ELECTED OFFICIALS, THEY no longer have a revolving door between business and government, they tore down the walls and they just come and go as they please. Corporations write the laws that congress passes and makes us live by. IT HAPPENS ALL THE TIME.
