  •  That's a good idea, too... (7+ / 0-)

    After the "health insurance" debacle where so FEW Reps and Senators listened to We The People who phoned, emailed, and faxed first suggesting, then begging, then demanding a single-payer health insurance program that could be easily administered by Medicare (thus, cheaper than a corporation could run it) and being totally ignored with excuses like "we don't have enough votes," I'm danged tired of signing petitions suggesting doing something that makes sense for a change.

    I don't want to be ignored again.

    True, Rep. McGovern isn't my rep (I live in MN where a formerly solid Dem district elected a 'Puke for the first time in something like over 25 years), but - in general - we elected these people to represent US, not corporations, big banks, stock brokers, big oil, big pharma, et cetera and so on and so forth.

    Since the 2000 election was given to the single most unintelligent and unqualified moron ever to be given the title "president," and his resulting eight-year debacle, illegal and unconstitutional wars, torture (!!! - I'm still hanging my head in shame over that one since the prisoners who can't be tried haven't been sent back to their home countries), and the like, I've developed quite a PTSD tic every time some kind of good legislation is talked about..., only to have everything shot down with lame excuses (which I can now predict with definitive accuracy)..., and all that under Obama and the first two years of a Democratically-controlled Congress!  No wonder so many Dems were ousted: they voted with the 'Pukes!

    Adding insult to injury, there's also the matter of extending the unconstitutional and illegal Patriot Act, MCA '06, and the FISA fiasco of '08 that all need repealing in their entirety, NOT extended!!!  Not one Rep or Senator has suggested repealing those POS legislation.

    ["We don't have the votes" my big fat arse!  Get the votes, then, or make sure those obstructionist politicians are lambasted in the media and shamed into doing something sensible and logical for a change!]

    I'm sick of attempts to steer this nation from principles evolved in The Age of Reason to hallucinations derived from illiterate herdsmen. ~ Crashing Vor
