Letter to the Editor: Vote out the corruption
Once again, it's presidential and Congressional election time with the Oval Office and 468 Congressional seats up for "sale" to the biggest spenders and the most convincing liars.
I'm disappointed with President Barack Obama, but I wouldn't vote for Mitt Romney for dog catcher. Both the Democratic and the Republican parties disgust me; both are the reason I became an Independent many years ago.
Why isn't Jesse Ventura on the ballot? Neither Obama nor Romney would face Ventura in a debate, nor does either want Ventura on the ballot. I wonder why?
Ventura, myself and all you readers know that both the Democratic and the Republican parties are riddled with corruption and both are equally responsible for destroying America.
Let's look at some percentages, folks; the only way to change Congress for the better is to change "who" will occupy Congressional seats. Two years ago a 13 percent change occurred with 61 new members elected, thus, 13 percent of corruption was ousted.
Every two years, 468 Congressional seats are open for election; that's 87.5 percent of all seats, thus, every two years "we, the people" can and must oust 87.5 percent of Congressional corruption. After six yeas there would be all new faces with new and better ideas and this would be a plus for "we the people."
The term "re-elect" should be omitted from the English language. Every elected office should be "one-term" and you're gone. That's the only way to purge the corrupt political system of corruption. I'd rather have no government than have a corrupt government because a corrupt government is the same as having no government anyway.
Presidential and Congressional campaigns and debates don't impress me because the same issues are debated over and over, but never resolved.
With all this being said, I may do a "write-in" vote for Jesse Ventura for president and vote third party for U.S. Senate and House seats.
Let's face the facts, folks, Congress has already bankrupt America, but "we, the people" can stop this nonsense by voting for third party candidates or write-ins.
