Here is a sample of what some of your fellow contrymen are saying. They are standing up and complaining. Woodie Guthrie would say that they are lining up to complain wherever they can be heard, from California to the New York Island, From the Redworod Forest to the Gulf Stream Waters. He would want you to remember that this land is your land and this land is my land and this land was made for you and me. Because of Woodie's appropriate reminder, and because the past year and then some have been bad for America and bad for the Constitution and bad for our Democracy, it's time to call those who represent us accountable for their poor leadership.
"Throw the Bums Out"
Posted by NevadaStu on a Wednesday long long ago! at 12:05:22 PM. Things do not change fast enough or perhaps they change too quickly!
Sometimes, in the great scheme of things, a series of random events occur that combine to produce a “perfect storm”. America now finds itself in the midst of a “perfect political storm”. We’ve elected the most radically leftist President in history, and gifted him with a Congress made up of a super majority of his political allies.
The combination of a media driven hatred of George W. Bush, an imploding economy, excessive corporate greed, public and private sector incompetence and other less publicized conditions lead to an almost incomprehensible defeat of 8 Republican Senators and 40 Republican Congressmen last Nov. 2008. Incomprehensible because the Democratically controlled congress had the lowest approval rating in history for much of 2008. It was 11% last October.
Many of our congressional representatives have been ignoring the will of their constituents for far too long and yet we continually re-elect them. On issues of illegal immigration, energy policy, bailouts, budget, terrorism etc. they consistently vote to weaken this nation. They cram pork barrel earmarks into bills at a time when we can least afford them, and then, the fools pass those bills unread.
They give themselves 10% raises almost each year, vote themselves excessive benefits packages, receive much of their full pay for life after 5 years, are showered with gifts from lobbyists in return for special favors, and it is tiring just recounting their sins.
Can this ever change? It sure does not look like it can! This will never change as long as Congress has the power to pass laws on their own behalf. In January of 2010, the US Congress voted to raise their yearly expense accounts by $93,000 each. That’s in addition to the $1.6m of petty cash they already receive per member.... Who's counting when most don't see it as something bad! By the way, Congress has ressited the temptation over the last several years as their ratings have gone to the netherworld.
Remember you have the power to change this in 2010.
In PA, we have Matt Cartwright, a very liberal Congressman and Bob Casey Jr., a senator up next year who is as liberal as they come and who pretends to be pro life. The next few elections are very important. So you know where both stand on the issues facing Americans today, I took the liberty of capturing their views and posting them below. You won;t beleive how anti-Pennsylvanian both are. Here goes:

Feel free to go to their web-sites and ask them your favorite question. From what I have seen when you get the answer from one --- Obama, Cartwright, or Casey, you need not ask the other two.
Your tool for change is your vote.
