    If it is still true that we are a government of the people, by the people and for the people, then it's time the people in Washington started living like "the people."  Let's see who's in this to affect positive change and who's just in it for the money.  For a start, if you get elected, you will make no more than the median income of your constituency.  Period.  You will pay for your own transportation and gas, like your constituency.  You will pay for your own healthcare, like your constituency.  You will pay into Social Security, like your constituency, inst

Will not be a show and dance just honest good people needed to make it known that Washington needs to keep spending but at a lower rate but Washington can do better work with the money that they collect when you the good working American pays his or her taxes.

    I watched the movie "Fair Game" last weekend, and it renewed my anger that neither Bush nor Cheney, let alone Rove, were impeached or prosecuted for the crimes they committed that have plunged this nation into such distress.

  • ALEC Exposed

    Through the corporate-funded American Legislative Exchange Council, global corporations and state politicians vote behind closed doors to try to rewrite state laws that govern your rights. These so-called "model bills" reach into almost every area of American life and often directly benefit huge corporations.

  • Progressive Needs! Join me In the Good Peaceful Protest!

    We need to stand behind whoever is in power at this time and the best we have is President Obama. I believe that he will make the right choice and make the republicans eat their own words with the kind of flip flop politics that we deal with today... I want you to call the Congress and support the budget that the Progressives tried to even present to the Congress. It of course was voted down by the rupublicans and never sent to the senate... So we need to stand behind them and the fight for equality amoung the people who need government most...
