    A snail is much to speedy a metaphor. Continental drift outruns Washington politicians.

    Well, Benson got something right; the trail of slime most politicians leave behind them…

    Put terms limits in place.

    Make all members of the government subject to the same laws they pass on the rest of us. No special retirement funds, health care, etc.

    For members of Congress, make it a part time job as it was originally intended to be.

    No pay raises unless they are voted on and approved by the population. With an overall approval rating of 18% they don’t deserve it.

    You do know who has to pass the laws to accomplish your pipe dream, don’t you ??

    He was perfectly willing to interrupt his own vacation for the good of the country. Which he like former President Bush and all other former Presidents, had to pay for ,except for those things such as security, which is essential in such an extreme world. So, as usual your comment is meaningless!!

    If you don’t like your representative, get busy and stop electing them! The classic is, “Yes, he’s a creep and crook, but he’s MY creep and crook.” If the nation, not just Ohio voters could vote against Boehner, he’d be on unemployment (okay, he’d become a lobbyist for millions a year) in a second.

    My Senators are both pretty good, even though I do disagree with them on some elements. My Congressman is a bit of an idiot, who I disagree with on almost every issue, but he does have a few good staffers working FOR veterans, and a couple other issues. My district is so “right wing” they haven’t elected a Democrat in 36 years, and our Representative before the current one WAS regraded (by House members!!) as the dumbest person in Congress, so I I guess we have moved up, just a little.

    Point being, sometimes our vote in some areas isn’t enough alone, BUT ! I have worked directly with my Congressman I disagree with on many issues, in a cooperative manner, and HAVE managed to get him to think over some issues and vote more responsibly having ALL the information, not just the “party line”. It is up to WE as “the PEOPLE” to do OUR job, even if “politics” doesn’t allow us to make the big changes we’d like, every time.

    Just sitting back and constantly bitching, without participating, makes one even less a “citizen”, and even if we can’t always elect who we want, letting them do whatever they, or the “party line” says, without challenging them, is NOT what the “founding fathers” would call “citizen”.

    P.S. Obama won the “popular vote”, TWICE, “W” did NOT the first time, and lost by considerably more votes than Obama won by. So, remember, not electoral college or SCOTUS, no “W”. (NOT “Bush bashing”, just stating a fact folks, before your get started again.)

    Sadly, MY Senators are Rand Paul, the twit in training, and Turtle-Boy McConnell himself!

    First of all as a former National Guardsman myself, I would like to thank and commend you for your service to this great country!!

    Second, I truly enjoy your comprehensive and informative posts. Heck, I even enjoy the posts of the more “thinking” conservatives here, even though I am conservative on some issues (crime for instance) and liberal on others (government for instance).

    What I do not enjoy are the knee jerk reactions of some of the ultra conservatives here. One even has the nerve to call himself (at least I think it is a he) a Christian. Never seeming to realize that Christ was actually far closer to liberal thought than conservative!!

    PS: And I do not enjoy the kindergarten type of name calling that sometimes goes on from either side of the political spectrum. That is why I use the term ultra conservative instead of some bastardization to the word Republican, and I would also like to see the term liberal (or even ultra liberal) used instead of terms like “libtard” or even libs)!

    “Post of the day…”
    If it wasn’t pure fantasy I would agree. Actually I do agree, but it is still pure fantasy because the only one of those points we the people have control over is the term limits. As I remember we the people did vote on term limits once, but the Supreme Circus decided that “The States” can’t tell the federal government what to do. Even though the people overwhelmingly voted for the term limits we were told we couldn’t do it. Well here’s how we do it, VOTE IN YOUR PRIMARIES! That way you can still have a republican or a democrat to vote for if you are a party liner, just make sure the incumbent does not win. Take some responsibility people, own up to your responsibility to this nation, your neighbor, yourself.

    But then that is fantasy too. Those in power stay in power because we the people are too apathetic to do anything but whine and complain. Not me, I voted for only two incumbents as far as I know. But the rest of the points can only be put in place by those very people it would negatively affect. And one party has proven they won’t do that, the other party has mixed results.
