I think we do take some out of office but it's not a fast enough process. And then a certain percentage of the new ones get indoctrinated (by
whatever means...payoffs, cuddling, blackmail) just as soon as they get there.
What we need to push for is strict term limits and lobby reform to start. But who in Congress is going to vote for that? They have too much to lose.
We've painted ourselves into a corner here.
I give Senator Paul a lot of credit simply for standing up to the status quo. That he makes sense as well is a side benefit.
Actually a campaign of continual replacement in 12 years you would have a completely new congress. You would have to replace all senators and
congressmen twice over to get people that haven't been indoctrinated yet.
It is possible, anything is possible. But in order for this to work, you would have to replace every single person, that means the good and the bad.
Replace them all over and over again till you have all new people in. Then you repeat the process to make sure that no one can make a career out of
being an elected official in the legislative branch. Then you can pass term limits. We the people would have to already impose those term limits.
But it would have to be a united effort on the part of all people.
“we the people”? so why dont you make it so?
make it so a senator is in office for one year.
they it will be the people who are in office.
and make shore that its not just the people with lots of money.
and not this voting crap,
where the one who spends the most money getting voted in.
gets to be the president.
Can you imagine what they would find if the Fed were audited?
I mean even the IRS failed their recent audit Source
Term limits are an excellent idea, but perhaps just as important ALL the corporate money has to be taken out of this. I realize that SCOTUS said
recently that corporations have the right to have access, but take the money out of their pockets.
But yeah, the Fed needs a good audit and not the independent audit they have every year, but a GAO audit.
