Drain The Swamp?

30 10 2009

The following letter (not the pink letter graphic on left) was sent to me by one of this blogs many readers . He asked that his name not be used on the stories he sends me, if I use them.

A pinkslip for all.I have some very good reasons to agree with the sentiments in the following letter, but more than anything else, I would like to hear from you the reader. Please sound off on what you think of the idea. Thanks!

All I ask is that you consider the suggestion here.

The entire Congress of the United States is corrupt. And I mean both Houses and I mean both major parties..

I realize that a few Members of each House are trustworthy, but, as a group they are absolutely the most corrupt bunch to ever disgrace our Nation.

In November of 2010 the entire House of Representatives will stand for re-election; all 435 of them. One third of the Senate, a total of 33 of them, will also stand for re-election. Vote every incumbent out.

And I mean every one of them. No matter their Party affiliation. Let’s start all over in the House of Representatives with 435 people who have absolutely no experience in running that body, with no political favors owed to anyone but their own constituents. Let’s make them understand that they work for us. They are answerable to us and they simply have to run that body with some common sense.

Two years later, in 2012, vote the next third of the incumbents in the Senate out.

We can do the same thing in 2014 and, by that time we will have put all new people in that body as well.

We, the People, have got to take this Country back and we HAVE to do it peacefully.

That’s what the Framers of our Constitution envisioned.

I am also suggesting term limits on the new bunch: 8 years for Representatives and 12 years for Senators – no exceptions. The longer they stay in office, the more power they get, and they love it and will do anything to get re-elected.

We have term-limited the President, now let’s term-limit the Legislators.

Please, if you love this Country, send this (as I have done) to absolutely everyone whose email address appears in your address book.

This thing can permeate this Country in no time. Let’s make it happen.

Don’t just delete this – please pass it on and give our Country a fighting chance.

VOTE THE POWER ABUSERS OUT……..LET’S TAKE AMERICA BACK !!!!!!!!!

If you don’t know your rights, you don’t have any.

Gio- you left his name at the bottom. Might want to delete it if he wants to remain anonymous.

Kathyd,

That’s the name of the Author of this letter. The guy who sent it to me would rather stay anonymous.

I hope that makes sense.

I think this could work. We certainly can’t have them all impeached at one time. All though that would be fun to watch!

One of the organizations which was present in D.C. on 9/12 was Flip This House. i attended one of their seminars and found they had a very similar program in place. They can be found at: http://www.FlipThisHouse2010.com
Caps are important in this address so pay attention.

Give them a look, they have some good ideas.

Never understood why Reps had to run every 2 years. It’s like serve 1 and the campaign 1. give em 6 -8 and then out.. same with senate. Good Idea, am passing it on.

Steve,

Yeah, I agree. The big problem as I see it with having two year terms is…. you are almost always voting with only your next election in mind. The other thing I don’t like is the way I can send money to a candidate in NY. A candidate should only get money from his national party, state and local party, and state or local supporters. Unless a politician is running for a seat that will not affect any national decisions, then they should NOT be able to troll for out of state monies.

I better stop here cause I could go on about this subject for hours.

I read that all politicians should serve two terms:

One in office and one in jail. 🙂
