That will make it even harder to find any qualified candidates to run for congress and we will get even less educated members of congress. That will also make them more likely to being bribed than they already are now.
NO ONE can be any worse than the current Congress and those politicians vying to replace them. It doesn't matter if we paid them $1/yr or $1 million/yr, the same power hungry corrupt individuals will run for office UNLESS WE CHANGE THE RULES.

Do not see the rules changing so get use to it.

Then there is no sense changing the players since they will all follow the current rules and do the exact same crap.

That's why I only vote based on 1 issue- support for gay rights. On all other issues there's simply no significant difference between the parties or candidates.

Maybe the same rules but different players may vote different.
Gay rights have no bearing on how I vote.

Judging by the current economic mess we're in, history proves the overwhelming majority of politicians WON'T vote any different than in the past no matter who the players are. That's why I don't vote based on economic issues. It just doesn't matter.

The proof will come in Nov/Dec when the super-duper-pooper-scooper committee fails to reach a compromise and the rest of Congress fails to reach any agreement and a few automatic budget cuts kick in as a result. Oh yeah, BIG change......

It seems that the tea party backed members that were elected last election do not vote like all the others.

I don't really see any difference, but if you do then by all means you should vote for them. I think in the end you'll be disappointed.

I'm resigned to the reality that a constitutional convention will never happen and Congress will blunder along doing the same crap they've always done.

I am not a tea party supporter. I am not a Norquist pledge supporter either.
