John Adams once made a statement about if you give a poor man the right to vote, he will sell his vote. I think that if you give a rich man a political position, he will suck the life and money from the people that he is supposed to be representing.
Our politicians have done a stellar job! There is no life or money left in America. I am not sure what else they can drain from us, except our blood. Isn’t time for Americans to say “NO” to these politicians? Vote them out of office or have peaceful sit-ins at their offices. Give them no choice but to listen and to act in the best interest of the American people.
For every bill that has something beneficial to the Representative, snuck in on the back side, should result in immediate dismissal from the job. We need a better way to “fire” these people. We need an “American Government Personnel Dept.” with the Personnel Department Chief having the power to “fire” these representatives immediately.
It would be set up with a hand book, just like any business. Listing the guidelines for work and staying employed. Each state would have an “AGPD” and a Chief and an Associate Chief, responsible for overseeing the work of each State and Government Representative.
If they feel their representative needs to be reprimanded, they would take it before the people and then reprimand the representative. If they feel the representative requires firing, once again, before the people and then fire the representative. This way the people of the state are informed and the representative will have a chance to defend his actions. But it should be quick and without political or big business interference.
Also the Representative is not guaranteed a four-year position. He/she can be fired just like the rest of us in the working environment. They need to be knocked off their podiums and placed with the rest of us on the ground!
I wonder how many new jobs; I just created with this one idea? Just an idea.
