    True, and this situation screams out for reform.
    Four year terms for reps
    Limit on campaign time and spending...say 60 days time; $100K to 1,000K money limit(based on the state population) - probably too generous..
    Truth in advertising, if a man lies, he must be exposed......maybe I am going too much too soon...most politicians may not know know to NOT lie...

    I think we ought to "Draft" our Representatives. Think about it,,,anyone that "spends" $millions of "their own money", to attain a Seat that pays "200,000 at most. MUST have an "Ulterior Motive".

    That's what's happening, in Both Partys.

    The problem there is different voting groups have different ideas of just what better is. What may seem better to you may not seem better to me. Basically I would like to see a much smaller government that specializes in handling foreign affairs, national security and trade and more power given to the individual states to govern their own affairs.

    That's what the Original Founders thought too. "Local Govt.", for True Representation of the People. In other words, we ALL know who's OUR Voice.

    That way, we can Praise them when they do a good job, OR...( the Peoples Option), if they're trying to screw us.

    Get rid of "bundeling of contributions" what's the point of limiting how much one person can contribute when that person can bundle 500 "contributions" in one lump sum and claim it's all from 500 different people? Those people can write their own checks.

    And,,, get rid of the Bums.


    57% would vote to replace the entire Congress and start all over again. Eighteen percent (18%) are not sure how they would vote.
