A clean sweep of all fatcat career politicians would be in the best interests of this country. when a politician puts his or her best interests before that of his/her constituents, they have failed as our rep. Vote them out.

The interests that come first are the interests of those that pay for the politicians' careers, and you vote them out and replace them with more of the same or worse since money wins elections. If you think you're pissant little votes sitting your fat asses on the couch are going to change a speck, you're zombies.

We keep hearing from the media that the Republican Party is dead and is preventing any “change” in Washington. The fact is that both Parties are dead and they have killed themselves. Both Parties now exist only to perpetuate themselves. The only thing they seem to be able to agree on is eliminating our rights. Reauthorizing warrantless wire taps they can agree on but they have won’t do a dam thing on either side to help the economy, decrease the deficit and increase employment. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/12/28/fisa...
All they seem worried about is abortion, gay marriage, amnesty for millions of criminal aliens, and a host of other issues that could easily be solved with common sense and a direct application of the Constitution and the law. The federal government has over grown and over stepped its authority by such a great amount that there may not be a solution to our problems but passing more laws and continuing to expand the federal government and its control over state’s rights and personal rights will not solve our problems.
