I've Come To A Conclusion

I am a HUGE fan of CNN. I know you all are probably gagging thinking about what kind of person watches and loves CNN. GET OVER IT!!! It’s a great place for news!!! I said so!!!

With the mid-term elections coming up in November, all the talk seems to be wrapped around who will win. Is the Tea Party going to spoil the Republicans chances of gaining control of the Senate and the House? Does that mean no tax breaks? Does it mean the end of the world? Apparently so.

Anyway, Jack Cafferty’s question of the day was, “Why would you vote for an incumbent?” I loved this question. Why would you vote for someone who’s already shown they won’t do the right thing? I’m so tired of no one in Washington doing something for the people who elected them.

So I’ve come to a conclusion. It’s time to oust all the incumbents and see if we can’t find people who will listen to the little people. Will it work? Probably not. But I can dream, can’t I?

  1. I'm sorry, I can't support anything that generalized. This situation with our government is way too complicated for a one-size-fits-all solution.

    I'll be the first to admit that there are a great many that need to be removed, ASAP.

    And really, all you can do is vote for or against your own Senator and Representative. Follow their votes, see where the stand, and make an informed decision based on what they've done.

    Promises? Forget'em. For every promise, there's someone on the other side promising the opposite.

    Your Senator Feingold? I hope he gets back in. But I'll be the first to admit I don't know many details about him. I could be wrong.

    But my Senator Makulski? I'll vote for her in a heartbeat. Senator Barb has a record of voting for the things I'm for, and that's all I can ask. (Plus she has seniority out the wazoo.)
