I hope so. Certainly all the lefties, who voted en masse to go with Obamacare, who refuse to enforce ANY fiscal responsibility, who can't seem to stop the Socialist/Democrat madness from spreading, need to go.
But the RINO's, the spineless wimps that were so concerned that the media might label them as racists for trying to stop illegal immigration, afraid that leftist women's groups would shriek about how they hate women if they don't have the gubbermint pay for screw pills, and a host of other fears, they deserve to go.
The new Congress needs to DO THE RIGHT THING. Stop pandering. Stop buying votes with taxpayer money.
That would be a good start. What is paramount in my mind. Is reestablishing the dominance of We The People as the true "MASTERS". And that all of those in our governments are nothing more than our hired servants. Our governments need to be put back in FEAR of We The People. It is essential if we are to regain and maintain true freedom and liberty.

Unfortunately, politicians (one step below snakes on the evolutionary scale) are only motivate by two things. Greed and the overwhelming desire to remain in office because staying in office satisfies the first. The only hold "We The People" hold over the politicians is our vote. Politicians will only enact laws to benefit "We The People" is if they think that their jobs are in jeopardy if they don't. That's the only way "We The People" can pressure those crooks into doing what is best for "We The People" instead of just for themselves. This hasn't happened in the past because the politicians have devised way to keep us divided and to make individual concerns more important than group concerns. Until and unless a charismatic leader emerges who can rally "We The People" to a common cause, nothing will happen on the local, state or national level. A leader who can rally the general pubic to a "common cause" that will flood the politicians inboxes, telephone calls and emails and faxes to let them know what needs to be done in order for them to be re elected. Sadly, I don't see that ever happening so we will continue to have "leader" who will sell "We The People" down the river for their own financial gain and self aggrandizement.

Don't watch cartoons, I prefer more adult fare. I'm reading Tom Clancey's latest book. Too bad you can't read. You're missing so much vital information. Now, go back to your sandbox with the rest of the adolescents. BYW, get your mommy to change your diaper. A week is way to long to be wearing the same one.

It happened here in this country back in the late 1850's. And knocked the demonrats out of power for DECADES. If it could be done then, it can be done again.

You are motivated to swallow everything your steam room buddies put into your mouth.

I'd go with the politicians, myself.

You have not done a thing for this country- not lifted a finger- it seems to those who are ranting right wing pejoratives by persons whose IQ don't reach the 80s that most politicians are motivated by service to the community.

Do let us all know the minute you get off your knees and make your way down to the serving side of the soup kitchen.

Pack of lies: How the GOP's phony 'court packing' accusation could backfire
http://blogs.chicagotribune.com/news_columnis...
The term is meant to generate a jolt of indignation in whatever neurons you have left that store memories of high school history class, specifically the day you learned about President Franklin D. Roosevelt's audacious effort in 1937 to make the U.S. Supreme Court friendlier to New Deal legislation by increasing the number of justices from nine to as many as 15.

If you like your Dr.,you can keep him,period.

If you like your health care plan,nobodies taking that away from you.

The cost for an average family will go down $2,500.00 a year under my health care plan.

In case anyone forgot the biggest lies of 2013.

These people have run amok for way too long. Here are some examples. Using a tragedy like the Newtown shooting to grab the American people's guns, the birth control mandate in crappycare which religious employers find unacceptable is part of their sick war on religion. And let's not forget their love of infanticide, they are the ones who fought for late term abortion. This is just a sample compliments of DOWNTREND.com , although this is all common knowledge.

I don't know about that. After all, I think people were more informed back then. Today? Our elections are nothing more than a popularity contest. What does your average citizen know about politics or policies besides what they read in the headlines?

We have a President who was nearly a complete failure his first term. Ran us into record debt, created record number of poor and government dependent people, lied to our faces multiple times, and how did the American people respond? They reelected him.
