Good idea, for a start. We also need to abolish ALL career politicians. They should be the way they were back when the country was founded. The
politicians should all be average Joes'. Just people with normal jobs who care enough about this country to be willing to serve there country in the
political positions for no wage. No amassing political favor, no campaign contributions, zip.
Let the people who LIVE in this country, and LOVE this country, RUN THIS COUNTRY!!!!!!
That way the country is in the hands of the people who know what is going on in the country and know what this country needs, not a bunch of preppy,
dipsticks who's only idea of living in and knowing this country, was the rhetoric that was forced on them in some prep school, that teaches that it
is a crime to think for yourself, unless it's how to get more for yourself.
If the men who founded this great nation, and fought for its independance could travel through time and come to this time now, I feel that they would
call for a armed uprising to throw off the bondage that the government has become. (At the very least they would probably go up to the current and
past presidents, that are still alive, and probably deck them. Knock them smooth the hell out, and voice their dissaproval or the current situation. I
know I want to.)
I love this country, but the way it is going now, it makes me ashamed to be an American. I understand that we have all of these modern conveniences
and freedoms, but they don't mean anything if the freedoms are an illusion. This country is no longer a democracy, it is becoming a socialist
republic, and I for one want the Democracy that my forefathers fought for BACK. NOW!
Sorry for the rant, I get started and I come un-hinged.
I agree that this should go for every elected official, from the President, down to the local Ward Alderman. Every political office.
