    ...would have any different results from a primary election, in terms of "party hacks"? It's about putting people on the ballot and seeing who the people prefer. What part of a primary  election do you think the "party hacks" would control that they couldn't control in a recall?

    And I'd hardly describe Sherrod Brown, one of the most progressive members of the Senate and someone who's fighting for the 99%, as a "stab in the back."

      Americans in NDAA too.  You call that "fighting for the 99%?"  I doubt you know what that means.

      Brown should be recalled too.  Here are the only ones who didn't vote yes:

      Coburn (R-OK)

          Franken (D-MN)

        ...wouldn't have voted "yes"?

        Has he taken a public position on the bill?
