Guess Who?

36 have been accused of spousal abuse
7 have been arrested for fraud
19 have been accused of writing bad checks
117 have directly or indirectly bankrupted at least 2 businesses
3 have done time for assault
71 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit
14 have been arrested on drug-related charges
8 have been arrested for shoplifting
21 currently are defendants in lawsuits, and
84 have been arrested for drunk driving in the last year

Can you guess which organization this is? Give up yet? It's the 435 members of the United States Congress! Believe it or not.

Why do we let these people keep representing us? We all know they are bilking us, and not getting anything done. This November, do yourselves and the country a favor - vote against every single incumbent. Put all new people in office. How will that help?

First, by "firing" all those Senators and Representatives, many of whom have been solidly entrenched for decades, you will be sending a very clear message to ALL politicians - if you don't do the job, and do it right, you'll be looking for a new job, pronto!

Second, the new politicians you elect will hear that same message, and will be more apt to pay attention to "We, the People".

We have the worst Congress in history. But it is not all their fault. It is ours - we keep re-electing those clowns! It's time for a change - a change in representation. A change in Congress.

Regardless of party, whoever the incumbent is, vote for the other person. It's the best thing you can do for your country. It's the only way to take back control.
