Our political elite have decided to replace the will of the people with what they think is best for us. There is less and less support for the health care initiatives being proposed out of Washington but instead of listening to the American people the politicians are going full speed ahead.
Why year after year do our dear leaders ask us to participate in the electoral process and then do not bother to do the bidding of those who elected them? I have written 10 letters to my representation about health care. All reasoned and using my grown up words what have I gotten in return? NOTHING....As of right now I am voting for one Federal office holder in my state, the rest I will vote against no matter what.

Remember these people are there to serve us but in reality they are there to serve their own political interest and increase and maintain their power. Why is it do you think they do not want term limits in Congress? If they are term limited out they cannot become the head of the committees where all the power is. They also are not able to suck at the teat of special interest groups right or left that cater to their every need.

I am sick of politicians on both sides of the aisle that have lost sight of their job and are only worried about themselves. They are not their to act in a manner they think we want but to do the will of the people that elected them.

While I have ranted here are some suggestions:
Congress: Term limits two terms of two years and you are done. Also congress is only paid when in session anything else is on their dime. There will be no inter season travel at the tax payer expense, staff limit of 5 paid for by the government everything else is on their dime.
Elections everyone gets the same amount of money there will be no multi-million dollar war chests. There will be no campaigning while congress is in session. Also each person in congress will be in chambers for every vote. Present and abstain will no longer be options these people have to make a stand.

Supreme Court we need some serious turn over there when did someone get to have a job for life?

Czars: This position will be done away with PERIOD. This is just a position that the President can use to fill non-existent positions with people that do not receive any public scrutiny. I do not recall this position being anywhere in the constitution? Besides did we not get away from Czars at the beginning of the Russian revolution?
