Nancy Pelosi/Barbara Boxer/Jim DeMint/Michele Bachman--VOTE THEM OUT!!!!!!!!!!!
Two Democrats. Two Republicans. Two U.S. Senators. Two U.S. House of Representatives members. VOTE THEM OUT!
Why vote them out?
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senator Barbara Boxer (both from California)are categorized as liberals. South Carolina U.S. Senator Jim DeMint and Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann are seen as conservatives. But all have very much in common and work far more closely together than they or the media would have you know.
Their ideologies may vary some, but their principles are almost the same. There is no mistake that their first, foremost and perhaps only political logic is designed for them to stay in office. This is the great commonality they share. It is their number one principle and each one of them understands, accepts and embraces this commonality in each other. This means keeping their puppeteers happy while never minding the best interests of the public or the country.
Pelosi, Boxer, DeMint and Bachmann are 'party over the people' ideologues representing special interests that are not in the best interests (or any interests for that matter) of the people who voted them into office. They are talking heads for their 'party bosses', insurance and oil companies, Wall Street and Banking corporations and unions. They decry legislation with 'earmarks', but each of them have taken earmark-money and returned to their States and Districts to take credit for them. They are all for 'financial campaign reform', but not one has done any thing to bring it about and have worked behind the scenes to derail any thing that would do it. Two are against government regulated health care reform and two are soft on it. But they all take it. They have government paid health insurance that tax payers don't have.
Their TAX PAID government office budgets range between $8 and $12 million a year, each. Nancy Pelosi's is more. As Speaker of the House, Pelosi has a government owned and paid-for air craft literally the size of Air Force One and uses it to fly from D.C. to California almost every weekend and other jaunts.
All of the above is bad enough, but only academic as to why each of these elected politicians need to be voted out of office.
What have Pelosi, Boxer, DeMint and/or Bachmann done, either individually or collectively for you, your family or your community to make it a better place?
What have Pelosi, Boxer, DeMint and Bachmann done, either individually or collectively for themselves and their backers to make their lives a better place?
Go to Wikipedea, click in their names, take a look at any legislation they've produced, see their voting records and their FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTIONS and you will get the answer to both questions 1 and 2.
These 4 politicians have 50+ years of federal public service experience combined. And what have THEY done for the people who voted for them?
Pelosi and Boxer are both products from the Burton Political Machine based in Northern California with tentacles into Southern California and big time into State politics. Both were handpicked a long time ago for their current positions and have been 'good little puppets' ever since. VOTE THEM OUT!
We need alternative candidates. But alternative candidates of substance have been difficult to find. When they are found they face an uphill battle against prevailing political machinery. As an example, Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey from Marin and Sonoma Counties in California was selected by the BURTON MACHINE in 1992 for her current position. She was elected and has been in the Congress ever since. Just listen to her speak for one minute and it's clear she rivals George Bush with her inarticulation with an IQ of an amoeba. When a moderate, independent Democrat (Joe Nation) challenged Woolsey in the primary 2 years ago, the Burton machine crushed Nation with the money it takes to win a congressional election. So, a dim-wit remains in office and follows what she is told to do. Lynn Woolsey should be added to the above 'vote them out of office' list along with a host of others. Democrat Senator Blanche Lincoln from Arkansas also comes immediately to mind.
DeMint and Bachmann are equally in the 'puppet' category with their financial backers. Just take a look at their Wikipededia outlines.
The question here is CAN these people be VOTED OUT OF OFFICE. We think they can when the voters are informed. And this means informing ones self about the issues at hand.
If you are not pleased by what's been happening in our congress and in your community then VOTE OUT the incumbents. Even a poor alternative could be better than what we have now.
Do you agree?
