Honestly , if the idea of refusing to vote for a failed party or personage was going to work, it would be working already. The fact is that being able to vote a person out of office at the end of thier term in office is no more of an appropriate level of control over your political leader class, than it is here in Britan.

The very second a nations spokesperson ( or leader as they are falsely called) moves against the interest or wishes of his people, he should be removed from office, and if he refuses to shift, be forcibly ejected, wether alive or dead at the end of that process. The people we are talking about have the power to ruin those who vote for them, and those who do not. The only fair way to run a nation, is to do everything one can to improve the lot of those who have no power of thier own, something which many western governments fail to do in a massive way these days.

In my own nation, we have just seen the first batch of university students to pay the ENORMOUS nine grand fees, get thier entry level exam results and applications for university accepted. That little political football should never have crossed the goal line, and the people who allowed it through parliament should have been burned alive and scattered to the four winds. The same can be said in my nation at least, about the changes to disability living allowances.

The things that our politicians, and those across the pond wish to do, that jeapordise the weak and powerless, are an afront to fair play, and an insult to those who have fought and died for both nations over the decades. My grandfather would do backflips in his grave, to know that the Conservative/Liberal coallition are making such a balls up of the nation he fought for. We should, as paying members of the public, be able to remove from office any person who acts against the weak, the powerless, or the needy. Very often, those who need most, work hardest in this country. It is not those who live in two hundred thousand pound homes, who deliver the mail, bake bread, make cars, and drive trucks.

It is those who live in the most fear of loosing thier homes, who have worked the hardest. Those who have worked themselves so hard that thier bodies have broken, who require the most aid to live. It is not the right of the entitled to take away those things from people who give so much of themselves to the betterment of the whole nation. Those who would attempt to remove rights and aid from these people must be taken out, removed, rendered into thier component ATOMS if it is the only way to prevent thier wrong doing in these matters.

It is not good enough to remove a party or person from the scene after his plan has come to fruit. Every single choice they make MUST bow and pay massive respect to the wishes of the people that they serve, or else face removal IMMEDIATELY from power at best, and total destruction under a charge of treason at worst.

To the people of the US, I say this. YOU are the head of your states. Every single one of you. Your president is nothing more than your servant, and you must bring him to heel when he does you wrong, just as you would support him when he does your bidding flawlessly. FORCE the government to follow your instructions, do not ALLOW your employees to undermine your nation. When your congress refuses to bow to the popular veiw, remove them from office on the day, do not wait, march on thier strong holds and remove them. Do not bow to those who serve you. Take the reigns, and show your "leaders" who is boss. If you do not, then nothing will change! You will not see freedom from unfair taxation, you will not see affluence and freedom from debt, you will not see the future you want to see unless you MAKE it happen, day to day, week by week. What happens every four years is not important. Asserting your right to control your nation as you see fit, now that is important, that will see you right for the future.

Do not rely on parties and congress and senates, do not rely on that which can be turned by the application of espionage, skullduggery, bribery and perfidy. Trust only what cannot be altered by the corperate interests that afflict the cleanliness of your political system, your hearts and souls. Force your government to bend to your collective will, and take it back from the corrupt and the corruptors. Fail to do so at your peril!

I would change that to:
Let us agree, as hard-working, equity minded, and conscientious citizens on this planet, that every time we find an elected member incontrovertibly breaking the very rules they themselves swear to uphold, we will collectively refuse to pay for, and act on behalf of, and collectively 'go with' it as a group? . Every time. Eventually, they will get the message.

The best people to vote for are the people who don't necessarily WANT to run things. Rather, Americans need people who are qualified business people. Politics in America doesn't work. It doesn't matter what the affiliation is. The system itself doesn't work. Too much corruption because of too much greed.

Here's a light-hearted take on it:

A little boy goes to his dad and asks, "What is politics?" Dad says, "Well son, let me try to explain it this way: I'm the breadwinner of the family, so let's call me capitalism. Your Mom, she's the administrator of the money, so we'll call her the Government. We're here to take care of your needs, so we'll call you the people. The nanny, we'll consider her the Working Class. And your baby brother, we'll call him the Future. Now, think about that and see if that makes sense,"

So the little boy goes off to bed thinking about what dad had said. Later that night, he hears his baby brother crying, so he gets up to check on him. He finds that the baby has severely soiled his diaper. So the little boy goes to his parents' room and finds his mother sound asleep. Not wanting to wake her, he goes to the nanny's room. Finding the door locked, he peeks in the keyhole and sees his father in bed with the nanny. He gives up and goes back to bed.

The next morning, the little boy says to his father, "Dad, I think I understand the concept of politics now." The father says, "Good son, tell me in your own words what you think politics is all about." The little boy replies, "Well, while Capitalism is screwing the Working Class, the Government is sound asleep, the People are being ignored and the Future is in deep poo."


Small, localized and business centered structures are the only answer.
