    'no taxation without representation', I may join them.  Judging from the diaries on the rec list, we should all join them since this particular government isn't do anything for many of us.

    We've been ignored by Congress for so long, we think it is normal for them to thumb their noses at us and do what they want.

    We got some dems elected.  And?

    Congress ignored record-breaking amounts of correspondence regarding the bank bailouts last fall....republican, democrat, independent, all political stripes wrote and said no.  Same with the awful bankruptcy bill.  The invasion and occupation of Iraq.  The secrecy.  The utter disregard for "the people" at every turn.

    Judging from the diaries here, we have PLENTY to be angry about with regard to our government, and it's not going to end with Obama.

    CONGRESS is supposed to represent US.  When a majority of the country is perennially pissed off at them with damn good reason, maybe we really should all band together and tell them they suck.

    Now, I do not agree with the republicans' reasons for doing this, which is shaping up to be some sort of action against Obama.  And the name really is beyond funny.  But the basic idea behind it?  I don't think it's that whacky.
