Get incumbents out

Republican or Democrat, my new government rally cry will be all incumbents are out after this ridiculous, self-inflicted wound we gave our country.

The only power we have is our vote, and they need our votes to continue their privileged lifestyles as career politicians. Incumbents should be out until they can all work together for the good of the people and the country and not a chosen few to the far end of each of the parties. These incumbents have too much baggage, too many people in their pockets and too many favors owed to special-interest groups.

After seeing this idiotic display of “leadership,” I have no doubt anyone could take any of these positions and do a better job. We all must remember our disgust with the whole lot when it comes to voting time again and we start seeing their fancy postcards, listening to their rhetoric, going to their town-hall meetings and hearing all of their empty promises.
