    That I can agree to. Kick ’em all out and start fresh and get back to what our Country is all about, the rule of: WE THE PEOPLE!.

    The problem with kicking the bums out is that we have to replace them.

    What makes you think that those who have the ability to run things properly have any desire to do so?Consider, if they tried to put Warren Buffett in charge of the US economy he’d tell them where to shove it, and go on with his own money management.

    Actually this cartoon is used every election. The same people get elected anyway. Go figure.

    It’s at times like this that the words of a wise, old sage, name of Pete Townshend, come to mind….

    “Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.”

    Venus is just a AGW denier’s idea of a vacation spot. Kicking all politicians down the road isn’t THAT good an idea. My Congressman is an idiot, but my district won’t get rid of him BECAUSE he’s a right wing idiot. Too bad we can’t administer a basic I.Q. and general knowledge test (math, science, geography, language, world and U.S. History) to ALL candidates to see if they’re smarter than a kindergartner, fifth grader WOULD raise the qualification too high for voters to know the difference.

    Problem is that’s just what most voters will do and we’ll be stuck with the same politicians handling the same mess the same way all over again.

    Only five cents? It costs WAY more than that to win friends and influence people on Capitol Hill.

    …“lobbyists…” to slow down the revolving door- Any Elected Ones that don’t get ReElected have to stay 100 miles away from D.C. for 5 years.

    This cartoon presents a delightful fantasy. I wish we could/would actually do this.

    “…more checks on character…” The mud slinging of elections usually uncovers weakness in a candidate.

    not really, better people are not necessarily good at fund raising and public politicing as currently required. A better Person would simply not enter Politics cause the Job Description involves some unsavory things (like pandering). We take money out of the equation and all of a sudden Ideas are more important (I’m not saying most important, you still can’t fix the other problem with our politics, which is people vote for the guy (or gal) they’d rather have a beer with (the vain part of politics can’t be fixed over night but taking money out of the equation helps a lot )
