Lately, many of my contemporaries have made their feelings known concerning the current (rotten) crop we have in Congress and the Senate. They feel that we need to *FIRE ALL OF EM* and start over with a fresh batch.
Rob, my good friend fromAmerican and Proud said this:
at this point, throwing the baby out with the bathwater is NOT a bad idea.
When a company/corporation becomes unprofitable due to its employees what do they do? They shut down, lay EVERYONE off for a couple of weeks while they reorganize. THEN they call back those employees that WERE Doing their jobs.
I suggest we treat our employees CONGRESS in the same fashion, throw em all out and then at the next election urge those FEW GOOD ones that were “Purged” to “Rehire”…
I love Rob like a brother, but the above got me to thinking. I hear many say basically the same thing. I read it in their blogs, I read it in the multitude of email I receive every day, and it’s always the same thing, *THROW EM ALL OUT*…
So, during that time, between the throwing them ALL out and re-electing the good ones, what do we do for a government? How does the USA continue to operate in that interim period? And how do we guarantee that the GOOD ones will be re-elected?
As I have said prior, throwing them ALL out is a highly impractical viewpoint. The USA can’t just throw them out and place some bunch in Congress *willy-nilly* and hope they don’t destroy America in the time frame they are allotted.
I have seen a bit of business AND corporate America in my lifetime, and I have never seen a successful wholesale firing take place, one in which EVERY employee was fired and then the good ones picked over and brought back at leisure. Not one that wasn’t intended to permanently dismantle the organization suffering this mass firing to begin with.
An example you ask? OK, try this, “Joe, you’re doing a great job here at XYZ Corp, but the guys 3 states over really suck, so, we’re gonna fire you AND them and then take a look at overall operations and reorganization, but hey, we’ll call you…. No, really…. We will…. “
If you want to dismantle the U.S. government, you’d better have a standby in the wings, waiting for immediate implementation. Otherwise, this wholesale *Vote em ALL out* is utter nonsense.
We KNOW who the good ones are, we KNOW who the bad ones are, fire all of em? Really?
What do you do about the idiots that elected them in the 1st place?
We have an elected government, and until such time as ALL officials and law makers are appointed by a panel, the asshats will keep coming back. The idiots that elected them will keep on voting them back in many cases.
And that brings up another point, WHO picks the panels that picks the government?
It’s about changing attitudes, and voter education, not firing the entire Congress,
You build a Conservative nation and by edict, do away with the faggots, ILLEGALS, dope-heads, abortion loving libbers, atheists and all of the assorted persons that have caused this nation, and our government to become the liberal dung heap it is and you solve the problem. Right?
Wrong! I must point out, when, or IF we do that elimination, then we have become the NAZIs all over again, or, at the very least, a lot more like the Muslims than I care to admit.
Freedom has a price, and suffering through the administrations of freely elected idiots is one of those prices we pay. It’s not so much the people IN Congress as it is the people that send them TO Congress.
What do you do about the people that keep sending Boxer, Pelosi, Feinstein and the like to Washington? What about the people that sent Ted Kennedy and John Murtha back for decades? It’s about the electorate and waking them up as much as anything.
Two words for you, TERM LIMITS!
It’s about returning Conservative and Christian principles to this nation, and it can’t be done by firing anyone, it’s got to be done through voter education and then sending those Christian Conservatives to Washington, in great numbers, and having them repeal the BS that has torn this nation down.
Change begins from within, we can change this nation back to what it once was, by education, by change of attitudes and by example, by voting in only those that represent America as WE want it to be, but it’s not going to be easy, and it’s surely not a fight for the weak!
It’s either that, or we go into a full blown revolution and change everything through violence, ethnic cleansing, genocide and just start over. But that too has it’s drawbacks.
I know that many want to start over, but this isn’t 1776. We have threats, on a global scale, that we didn’t face then. If we go into revolution against the elected government of this nation, China and/or Russia, and certainly some Muslim nations, will take this country over and we will lose everything we have. We will become The Balkans.
Is that what we want? Is that what YOU want?
