money is the issue here.
money is driving the decision process of every politician in the united states government.
because money is power. and those in power wish to keep on making money.
consider the army of lobbyists in washington. they are a means to ensure money drives the decision process.
consider how much money it takes for a politician to be elected.
removing politicians, electing new politicians will do nothing to solve the rampant ineffectiveness of every politician now in office.
take away the money. outlaw or drastically reduce the enormous benefits given to politicians. cap their salaries. outlaw lobbyists. outlaw donations. remove the factor of greed.
make all politicians realize that in order to lead a nation, they must live as the people they wish to guide.
there is no other solution.
I'm telling you, if martial law (or anything similar) were to be implemented nationwide, a revolution would begain.

The American people have neither the intestinal fortitude, the mental or emotional ability nor the moral aptitude or courage to implement "blowback" or resistance to ANY TYRANNY OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER!
I SINCERELY BELIEVE that if the American people were told by the Federal government that Federal Agents were making sweeps from city to city and town to town and would rape all girls and women over the age of 7, would shoot and kill all firstborn males children regardless of age, would sodomize all other males and then rob and plunder all household valuables, then demand a politely worded "Thank you sir, may I have another?"...I SINCERELY BELIEVE THAT ONE WOULD SEE ABSOLUTELY NO RESISTANCE FROM AMERICANS WHATSOEVER!
A lot of blogs crying the old standard of "Yeah...we're not going to take this crap...time to fight back for our freedoms..." etc...etc.. Yes, we'd see a lot of that...
But the idea that Americans would ever TRULY take a viable stand against their owners...NEVER !!!
YES...THIS IS A NON ELOQUENT RANT IN CAPS !!
THE TIME ATTEMPTING TO REACH WITH REASON AND BY MEANS OF THOSE ELOQUENT ELOCUTIONISTS HAS NOW FADED INTO THE SUBTLE LONGINGS OF THE PAST.
AMERICANS ARE STRIKINGLY DEAF AS WELL AS DUMB...THEY ARE FREAKING MUTE, UNLETTERED, ILLITERATE AND INSUFFERABLY STUPID BEYOND ALL MORAL AND INTELLIGIBLE COMPREHENSION !!!
NOTHING IS GOING TO HAPPEN TILL YOU AMERICANS MAKE IT STOP !!!

GANDHI, ONE OF THE GREATEST HUMAN BEINGS TO EVER GRACE OUR PLANET. FREED AN ENTIRE NATION FROM THE BONDS OF THE BRITISH EMPIRE WITHOUT FIRING A SINGLE SHOT AND INSPIRED OVER 300 MILLION PEOPLE TO TAKE THE BLOWS THAT RESULTED IN THEIR EVENTUAL FREEDOM !!!
ARE WE AMERICANS OF ANY LESS HONORABLE BLOOD AND NOBLE STOCK AS THESE?
YA GRUMBLING, MUMBLING, STUTTERING, MARBLE MOUTH, DROOLING, STAMMERING DOPES !!!!

AMERICANS ARE GETTING EXACTLY WHAT THEY HAVE BEEN BEGGING FOR AND THUS DESERVE...AND THEY CAN"T SEE IT !!!!
YOU SIT AROUND ALL DAY AND COMPLAIN ABOUT IT BUT NOT A ONE OF YOU HAS THE STONES TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT !!!!!
YOU'RE ALL NOTHING BUT A BUNCH OF PINKY FINGER TAPPING, BLOG POSTING, BS WANNABE HEROES WITH NOT A OUNCE OF HONOR OR A DROP OF GUTLESS BLOOD IN YOUR VEINS !!!
WHEN IN THE WORLD ARE YOU GOING TO ACTUALLY LEARN FROM HISTORY?
TAKE A FEW TRUE HISTORY LESSONS...THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR FOR AMERICAN INDEPENDENCE, THE CIVIL WAR, THE FRENCH REVOLUTION...THAT'S WHAT THESE GUYS WERE FIGHTING FOR...AGAINST POLICE AND GOVERNMENT BRUTALITY !!!
AT LEAST THEY HAD THE HONOR AND GUTS TO STAND (AND DIE IF NEED BE) AGAINST SUCH BRUTALITY !!!
NOT LIKE THE REST OF YOU WIMPS !!!
SORRY THE TRUTH HURTS SO BADLY !!!
QUIT YER BITCHIN' AND ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT YA HALF A SISSIES !!!!!!
AND IF YOU DON'T THINK THAT THE OLD WARS HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH TODAY'S POLITICAL CLIMATE THEN I STRONGLY SUGGEST YOU GO BACK TO KINDERGARTEN AND LEARN THE REAL HISTORY BEHIND THE CONFLICTS !!! AND NOT THE LIES AND BS THAT SO MANY OF THE ILL INFORMED WOULD HAVE YOU BELIEVE !!!

Sounds like nation building to me. Who replaces them? Do we really need total chaos? I thought we have a system to replace them. I think the real problem is the press and how the Americans are fed information. Karl Rove and Bush proved an important lesson. The more you stick to the "points" the more likely the people listening will repeat the message and believe it, even if tis wrong. The people here really want to just be told something and left alone. I was golfing with one of my buddies and he flat out said, the people running the nation should just be left alone to run it. That's why we put them there. I said "what if they are doing the wrong thing" and he simply said that it's their problem. I couldn't disagree more but, I didn't want to get into it on the course.
I say vote them out. I've been watching the process over the last few weeks, particulary, my representatives in my home state. They so far, have reflected my points of view. It they stop, I vote against them.
