The U.S Congress Disgrace
In November this year, one-third of the U.S. Senate is up for re-election and all of the House of Representatives face re-election as well. Both the Republicans and Democrats have victory plans and strategies. Here they are:
Republicans: Filibuster everything.
Democrats: Blame the Republicans for everything.
What neither side of the isle seems to "get" is that Americans are angry and fed up with OUR U.S. Congress practicing THEIR business as usual games.
Are there NOT any independent candidates available to the electorate with middle of the road ideals who are not bought by special interests? Candidates who will represent US instead of corporations?
We suspect not. Because it takes big money to run for office and win. And the corporations and unions seem to have that big money for their candidates. Not ours.
But, suppose for just a moment that we can find some candidates of substance. Candidates we can "Internet" and build upon and win.
Right now and for some time our U.S. Congress is a disgrace to the country and to each of us. We can vote. Lets find some independents and vote out as many Democrats and Republicans as we can.
