and we have one BIG ROTTEN BARREL!

OH - THE PIC?

I TITLED IT - "THE TRICKLE-DOWN EFFECT" ...

Our 'REPS' use the top one!





STATUS QUO

© - Tom Hyland - 7/7/10


In RE - My - Message to Congress -

To All The Nay-Sayers:

I’m not a ‘PollyAnna’ who thinks this proposed
action will solve All Problems.

The Concept is Simple -
“A New Broom Sweeps Clean!”
At least for a little while, until it gets worn.
Then, another New one is needed!

The point is to STOP Re-Electing the Same Old
So-Called ‘Representatives’ -
Permanent Politicians who are Embedded -
And ‘In Bed With’ the Corporations!

The Chance, or Opportunity to Change - The ‘System’ -
Some “New Blood’ that Might have the Patriotism
To Actually Repeal Bad Laws!
To Possibly Install a “One Term’ Limitation
On ALL Offices!

To Eliminate the Wasted Billions of Dollars
Of ‘Campaigning’ - and ‘Graft’ - and ‘Kick-Backs -
And Life-Time Benefits and Retirement -
Get Elected - Serve One Term - Then Go Home!

“THE BUCK STOPS HERE!”

No - It will Not happen Over-Night -
It will take Years to Accomplish such a Major Change!
But by God - This November -
Can Send a Message that The American People -
Are Sick and Tired - and We Won’t Take It Any More!

Just Imagine If - Tens of Thousands of Us ‘Little Guys’ -
Simply Wrote Our Own Names In Each Ballot!
Sure - Many Incumbents will still get Re-Elected -
Because all their Cronies will vote for them -
BUT - the Numbers will be Disastrously Small!

Maybe - Just Maybe - They’ll Take The Hint!
All the Kennedy’s and Byrd’s and Bush’s And Others -
Who supposedly ‘Served’ for 10-20-30-40 Years
Need to Learn to Go Get ‘Honest Jobs!’

My Votes will All Be For -

AMERICAN INDEPENDENCE -

FROM CROOKED POLITICIANS!

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

WE NEED A NEW ‘AMERICAN PARTY!’

ONE TRULY FOR THE POPULACE -

NOT CORPORATIONS!

Alas, where you gonna find 'unembedded' ones? Election campaigns cost millions and millions of dollars, today. And guess how candidates get those millions - 'in bed with' corporations.



And watch some of the political ads for these so called heroic newcomers who are gonna roust the nasty old incumbents and save the day - many of them are corporate bigwigs themselves. Guess what the odds of them 'jumping out of bed' are. 0
