Throw The Bums Out
Congress has gone to far.
There are stories all over the web on this today, but this Forbes piece sums it up pretty well.
The gist of the Senator's arguments is that politicians are above the law. Even when caught on camera taking a $100,000 bribe, perhaps especially when caught on camera, as was Louisiana Democrat William Jefferson by the FBI.
This only leaves one manuever for the rest of us who actually behave. Vote against whoever is in office. Whether they have been good or bad representatives of your district or state, they should be removed as a lesson to all politicians.
This may require Republicans to vote for Democrats and vice versa, but that is a small price to pay to bring our country back from the brink of disaster. If you simply cannot vote for the opposite party you can also use the primary to push an incumbent out of the race. There are a lot of options and all of them are quite powerful and frightening to our elected representatives. Why else do they go to such great lengths to "serve" their constituents. Ha, they like the power and the perks.
Unlike what happens elsewhere in the world when the powers that be get to big for their britches, this will be a bloodless and law-abiding coup. No matter who is elected they have to be better then what now infests Washington.
