Of course our founding fathers would have approved of this type of thinking - remove over 500 members who were voted in by the people and leave the
one who appoints all under him powers (the executive branch). Also just leave the judicial branch out while were out it. Why do you suppose that is?
Sounds like a poll with a purpose to me. Our founding fathers would disapprove of me questioning singling one branch out? Glad to know that is a good
start. Please complete the thought though. What happens after that because that is sort of important. Why not kick out the executive? At least the
reps were voted in by the people. To kick them out takes our voices out completely
Also - kicking all out of congress is generalizing - assuming all of them are bad seeds. Nothing gets done when people start out with this sort of
thinking. It gets done by being reasonable and taking small steps. Anything so dramatic would not happen, and if it did it would only give the
executive a ton of room to exploit it.
All of this is not their fault either. Lets look at how we allowed this to happen as well. To blame them alone is to say we are powerless in all of
this / have no responsibility. That is something I'm sure our founders would disapprove of for sure. They gave us rights so why do we wait until the
last hour and then say we are victims. We have so much power - always have. We just haven't been using it. Now it is being taken but...that started
long ago. People have been in a trance or something. None of this just happened this month.
There are more effective ways to turn this around than firing one branch of the government. Maybe stop prescribing to media that forms rather than
informs knowledge. Maybe make a change by voting after lots of research - looking at all sides - not just what people want to see will benefit them at
But will any of that or more happen or do we just want to have all of our conveniences, and not have to work for it in our day to day lives? It's so
much easier to just blame someone. Some collective insight is in order. Should they "all" go. Would be nice. Just unrealistic and does not fix the
root of the problem - which is what put them there and made them what they are today.
