    I personally say that its time to rid our nation of about 535 members of Congress. If these folks in office don't like doing the job, then there's probably a few out of 300 million plus people would and is ready and willing.
    Know what's worse than a constitutional monarchy? An actual monarchy.

    It was Obama's idea to allow more time for the deal that he was never going to make with the republicans. He knew that the cuts were coming, this is what Boehner and he agreed on last time this happened. Just this time the American people are not believing his chicken little story. They want spending cuts! Even the media and far left govenor's are beginning to grow tired of Obama scare tactics Congress has plans, but Obama wants to veto them...
    There's no greater irony than a Trump supporter pointing out hypocrisy; Unless it's Trump himself.

    Yep, 535 constitutional monarchists...who don't like doing their job and who don't respect the intent of the institution, which they were entrusted, created within the constitution...can easily be replaced with 535 more constitutional monarchists. But I don't see an actual monarchy in the picture.

    I think I'd like to see the long-time staffers in Washington go along with the current 535 elected seats. Probably even more so. Maybe do it at a pace of like 10% of the seated and staffers per month over the course of say...one year. Now that would really ruffle the power structure.

    It’s going to get really interesting to see the types of very serious decisions that our beloved politicians in Washington simply places on auto-pilot come tomorrow. It'll be a real foot tapper, indeed.

    Yeah, my bad. I originally read it as you wanting to eliminate all of Congress.

    Hmm...I wonder...

    No biggie, I kind of figured that you did, that's why I elaborated a bit more. But it really is going to be interesting to watch this all unfold.

    I typed in "train wreck" on my TiVo. Now it's stuck on C-Span.

    To me, voting is something that should be taken very seriously.

    But today, partisan politics is destroying America as too many people refuse to vote for anyone who is not either a Dem or a Rep.

    And since the party's know this - they play it safe and only nominate candidates that tow the party line, act likeable and who think outside the box as little as possible.
    The voting laws and the big bucks are stacked against the independents, not to mention most of the mainstream media.

    It's hard to defeat a corporation.

    But if no one tries - it will never end.

    Nothing truly worthwhile is easy.
