Another Good Opinion to Pass Along.

M. J. is my intelligent daugthter.

This is probably nothing new but the more time passes with the current players in government, the more I am leaning towards the below suggestions. I am hopeful though that voters will do a bit of homework and not simply vote against incumbents but vote for people based on where they stand on important issues as well as how they have comported themselves (character- values) and where applicable, how they have voted/sponsored legislation. It is important not to get hung up on single emotional issues rather than looking at the big picture. Political hot buttons target our emotions, both sides are guilty of using this methodology. I believe we tend to get worked up and hung up by single issue distortion making our ability to look at the overall big picture clearly difficult. When reason and logic are hijacked by vague implications, as a single motivational issue (healthcare etc.), it is urgent as voters we open our eyes and consider the wider viewpoint. A democratic republic working on majority rules stands still without reasonable compromise, as citizens we are responsible to vote wisely.

Just some thoughts,

Subject: Suggestion for a peaceful purge - please forward

A friend sent this thoughtful piece and asks that you read it, and, if you agree, forward it widely - - -


"All I ask is that you consider the suggestion here.

"The entire Congress of the United States is corrupt. And I mean both Houses, and I mean both major parties.

"I realize that a few Members of each House are trustworthy, but, as a group they are absolutely the most corrupt bunch to ever disgrace our Nation.

"In November of 2010 the entire House of Representatives will stand for re-election; all 435 of them. One third of the Senate, a total of 33 of them, will also stand for re-election. Vote every incumbent out.

"And I mean every one of them. No matter their Party affiliation. Let's start all over in the House of Representatives with 435 people who have absolutely no experience in running that body, with no political favors owed to anyone but their own constituents. Let's make them understand that they work for us. They are answerable to us and they simply have to run that body with some common sense.

"Two years later, in 2012, vote the next third of the incumbents in the Senate out.

"We can do the same thing in 2014 and, by that time we will have put all new people in that body as well.

"We, the People, have got to take this Country back and we HAVE to do it peacefully.

"That's what the Framers of our Constitution envisioned."

I am also suggesting term limits on the new bunch: 8 years for Representatives and 12 years for Senators; no exceptions. The longer they stay in office, the more power they get, and they love it and will do anything to get re-elected.

We have term-limited the President, now let's term-limit the Legislators.

Please, if you love this Country, send this (as I have done) to absolutely everyone whose email address appears in your address book.

This thing can permeate this Country in no time. Let's make it happen.

Don't just delete this - please pass it on and give our Country a fighting chance.
