For just a minute put aside your Left/Right; Rep/Dem; Conservative/Liberal; Red/Blue; Rich/Poor; AM/FM; Mac/PC prejudices. We are on the precipice
of being truly screwed people and for once we need to work togther to put a stop to things. This very well may be our only chance.
Our government is seriously broken. We ALL know that. Not the President. Not Congress. ALL of it. Look what has happened in only recent years:
9/11 :: No matter what your take on that event is, at a minimum the goevernment ignored intelligence from our own intel agencies as well as foreign
governments and allowed us to be attacked. Our response --- during the attacks --- was woefully poor and ineffectual. The government (at a minimum)
The Wars :: We've been dragged into 2 (arguably 3) wars based upon either cooked intelligence or bad intelligence depending on your position. In
any case, the wars were unaffordable financially (not to mention in human terms) and have created far more problems then they could ever have hoped
to solve: The government screwed-up
The FDA :: Charged with the oversight of our food and pharmaceuticals we have had more outbreaks of food-borne illnesses, pet food contamination, lead
paint contamination, etc. than ever before. The agency isn't working. It needs to be restructured.
Department of the Ineterior :: Among other things, the DOI is responsible for protecting OUR interests in federal land oil leases through oversight of
the oil companies. INstead, they have been taking gifts, trips, drugs gone to parties with and done the horizontal mambo with the very oil company
personnel they were hired to oversee.
HUD :: Need I say anything here? They have the responsiblity of oversight of the housing market. Way to go boys. Good job.
Treasury :: Oversight of the financial markets? Really?
And on, and on...
So, we have a problem of innefectual government screwing us through mismanagement, personal agendas and outright fraud on the people. Time for a
To this end I URGE everyone here to commit to voting every incumbent out of office. Every single one. From the local, state and federal levels. We
don't give a rats ass who the opponent is --- clearly it doesn't matter if the people that are in there now are 'the best' --- vote ALL incumbents
This effort would be an effective and more importantly acheivable message to all government people and politicians that we have had enough. The game
ends now. Your political careers are over and the age of 'professional politics' has come to an end. If we were able to achieve this it would be
unmistakeable and abundently clear. It would send a message that we are angry and that. more importantly, despite THEIR efforts to prevent it we CAN
organize and work together. That, people, is their greatest fear.
Bring it down. Vote them out. All of them. Please help.
