We need to scrap this whole thing and start over. Make the ruling class get rid of their fancy health plan; require them to have all of the same benefits as joe six pack, including Social Security! Getting rid of their lifetime pensions would just be a start to fixing our problems. All of the old fossils need to be retired. Elderly incumbents and judicial positions that are supposed to be “appointed for life” need to be refreshed with new blood. Term limits may be unpopular on the beltway but we are not running a nursing home here!
The only way to do this is to take the law into our own hands. We can depend on no one but ourselves.

Kinda like looking in the mirror, sucking in your gut, and saying yeah baby, looking good!

What do you mean? Are you advocating anarchy, a change in the form of government or just replacing this bunch of scoundrels?

Is it wise for the accused to prepare the prosecution's case. Congress thinks Americans are stupid.

Want to send a message, vote out ALL incumbents.
