Most Members of Congress Represent the Federal Government In Dealing With The American People

I listened to a caller on the Mark Levin show describe perfectly our problem with Washington...we send them to Congress based on their campaign promises to represent us and our concerns, e.g. Obamacare, and what do they do but come back to and try to convince us that we should like Obamacare>

In other words, as the caller describes, his representative came back after being elected and tried to get her voters to see Obamacare as all of Washington's establisment views government program...bigger is better.

Yep...they go to DC to supposedly represent us...and then Represent the Federal government back to us...time to make them Do Their Job! Or they’re out. Ask them...do you represent the people...or...the government.

If all elective positions were strictly limited to single terms, and if no person could run for a second elective office, I believe we’d have less despicable representation.

I heard the call too. I too was struck by the simple truth and insight of that statement.

I think Mark was too.

I think my tagline explains it.
It usually takes just long enough for them to bank that first million, at that point they represent their interest not ours.

With all the talk of a third party, its nonsense and a waste.

All the voters have to do is hold these people accountable. You send them there, they don’t do what they say. Then they get a challenger and get sent packing. Pure and simple. There’s the third party. When the next man/woman goes to DC, if they don’t do what they promise....NEXT.

The challengers only campaign statement should be that the incumbent didn’t do what they said they were going to do, or at least try, so I’ll do my best. No debates. No commercials. No ads.
